What's the process for getting heated water into the HLT, do you use a stepladder, or are you a lot taller than me? Is there a thermometer mounted on the HLT?
I dip the hot water from my kettle and dump it into the HLT. I have the HLT sitting on that lowest shelf. Then I put the lid on it (very important!) and lift it up to the top shelf. Crappiest part of brewday, besides cooling!
I don't have a thermo mounted in it yet, but I will before long. I got a sight glass kit form tnlandsailor for it, and it has a port for a thermo. I just need to get around to installing it!
