Nice walk-through, Orfy.

One question -- what's the heat sink doing there in the mash tun?

It's on a large peltier device that I was going to use to keep the mash at a set temp.

  1. It doesn't need because the cooler does a good job.
  2. It will raise the temp but I need to stir to stop hot spots and it was a pain.
  3. I couln't be arsed spending time and money on a temperature controller that was really needed.
  4. It now just covers a hole.

Nice job Orfy. That belongs in the wiki regardless of who does the formatting.

the crusty heating element is classic...

Call me crazy, but I just love the way everything looks so "HGWellsish"...


Those burner legs were made to be passed down from generation to generation.


Thanks orfy!
