Wish we had something available, LHBS or a club, down here in the Beckley area. The internet
seems to be my best friend when it comes to getting supplies.

The purpose of the fuse is not to protect the STC-1000, rather it is to protect the wiring from

I never have been able to get all of the smell out of fermenter buckets, stoppers and tubing.
As long as they appear clean I don't worry about it and sanitize them before use.

fittings together and make an offset pipe to get down to the bottom of the MLT. Hook the braid
to the en...

variety of wa...

Question for you: What do you use to stop pumping from the MLT to BK to keep the pump from
running dry?I generally stop the pump manually when I have reached full calculated volume in
the BK. That's j...

Here's a layout of my current setup. It's somewhat similar to what you are proposing.
differences I run the HLT output through a 3 way valve and into the pump that recirculates mash
