How is Lonnie igniting the pilot in Brutus? Being that his pilot is just a ball valve and small flow burner - standing by for the ASCO to open up flow to the jet burner.
I don't see anything in the BYO article or the photos that would suggest they are spark ignited, etc - does anyone know? Is Lonnie lighting his pilots manually at the beginning of a brewing session?
We're working on our plans for our build and after much discussion/debate today we think we only need to really control the HLT burner (we're building a HERMS btw) with the Love switches - and would setup a standing pilot, thermowell, etc (furnace setup) on that burner but the BK would be just a simple "on / off" - flip a switch and kick that burner into gear.
We'll be sure to post our plans, diagrams, etc - would love to have some folks review it and see if we're completely off our rockers or have it right!
