Thanks!

Yup. I shove about 8" of the lead directly in the mash.
It never occured to me that it wouldn't be waterproof.

How many pounds of grain can you fit in your system?

Looks good!

I've had 13.5lbs so far. Probably 15 or so.

Not trying to be a douche, i just want to let people reading this know what Auber told me with regards to the temp probe used in this build..

Quote:
You can't immerse the tip that deep. This probe is not waterproof at all. Only the very tip (1/8") can be immersed. This probe is designed for measuring metal temperature such as plastic injection mold. The steel braid will rust in water. The water will also get into the tip to cause error reading, and corrode the TC wire. The only thermocouple we have that can be immersed this deep is the WRNK-191 with 10" probe. You should use our PT100S RTD probe for this application. It can be immersed and is much more accurate.
The PT100S rtd he's talking about is completely waterproof (wire included as it has a teflon jacket).

For $7.00 I'll keep submersing it till it craps out and report back when it does.

this is pretty much exactly what I had in mind for my setup that I'm building, except I'm using a keggle for a brew pot and slightly lower wattage elements. this is great info, thanks!

Yeah no problem. I'd never think not to submerse it until you told me.


Another member on here has about 30 batches so far submersing his same thermocouple with no problems. I'd be ok with that. That's 2 years of brewing for me.
