I'm glad sippin37 started this thread. I have been considering purchasing that system. I enjoy DIY, but I'm simply not finding the energy - with everything else that's on my plate right now - to build an e-kettle as well as an e-controller.
I was starting to get quite frustrated with this thread seeing that it was started 3 months ago, 3 folks have purchased the system, but no one has used it yet. I saw today that Spacemanspiff has actually used his.
I would be very interested in a detailed account of your use of this system as soon as y'all get a chance to use your systems. I'm particularly interested in:
(1) how well your temps hold,
(2) how well your recirculation works since several e-brewers have abandoned recirculation,
(3) how well everything goes with the bag in the basket,
(4) how your cooling method works with this system - whether IC, plate chiller, counterflow chiller, etc. and, last but not least,
(5) your cleanup.
Please don't read any disrespect in my message above.
