just curious, what happened to the stainless tray in the brew stand?

Congrats on the first batch in the fermenter.... did you really use 1 pound (at 75 mins) of cascade in that beer?

Haha. No, I used a total of 1lb combined during 4 additions over the entire 75mins, not an entire lb for the whole 75mims. I should have clarified. The SS tray need up being too small I plan to re-repurpose it as a prep surface next to my gas grill. Thanks!

Be right over. You prefer pepperoni or Hawaiian?

ok so I finally took the time to wire in a new circuit within my ferm cooler for powering my heater and stir plate. Basically, what you see in the photos is how I spliced the power cable just before the main terminal, enclosed the splice in a j-box and ran the cable up the back of the cooler and into a perfectly fitted hole. I then just simply installed a receptacle over the inlet.

You can see that nice pretty heater running. The only piece I still need will be a heater temp controller. I think I'll pick up something a a nearby reptile store. Something simple and cheap.

Once I get that controller installed, I can brew up whatever I'd like at whatever time of year. No matter if its -10F or +100F. Of course I'll always have a perfect pot to spin up a new starter at the same time

I struggled with my trub in my shirron chiller plate on my first batch, so tonight I sterilIzed it again after noticing a funny smell from that unit.

Since my last brew day, I've mounted the chiller on the wood stand; I've also hose clamped a few connections that worried me (mostly incoming). I resterilized the inline oxygenation system that I purchased from morebeer.com as well.

Prior to this build I've only used IC's to cool my wort, but tonight I was really impressed at how fast and simple my Shirron plate chiller was.
