Got it...Thanks!

Ok, so with all these great rigs..I have decided I want to make a RIMS 3 tier gravity fed setup...Any of you guys actually draw these out, or diagram them, and put together a list of parts, cost and where you purchased from...so us idiots out here can put one of these bad boys together?

Thanks
Dan

Seriously, his meter showed 119C (246F) which doesn't make any sense. It wasn't clear if he chilled the wort but I would assume he did and his meter is bonkers.

could it be 11.9 C that would be around 54°. I am thinking that wort goes from the boil pot to a chiller and then the fermenter. towards the end the wort if being aerated as it drops into the fermenter with no steam.In the background the boil pot is still steaming. So I would bet its 11.9 c not 119c
