    I used to suggest the same thing but after a year of brewing I have come to realize there
    really is no point... if one has and uses a properly sized exhaust hood there will be no issue
    with the steam ...

    I wouldn't want anyone to see the poor wiring in my control box! (As well I'm from the pre
    "computers as bling" era.):D

    The danger of using the "wrong" plug is someone (in the future?) could plug it into the wrong
    receptacle, although, as Adelange has pointed out, this is not super likely and this connector
    exceeds vol...

    Hate Belma for IPAs and Pale Ales. Unfortunately, that's most of my brews. Strawberry is too
    prevalent; might be good in a saison, wheat, or special category brew.Use the search - a lot of

    Well, I made it. Post boil OG of only 1.48 and I only got about 12 gallons out of it with a lot
    of trub at that. And I only pitched two types of yeast due to error on my part. Denny went into
    the 3 ga...

    Well, barring catastrophe or small part oversight, I'm going to make this on Saturday. 15
    gallon batch is the plan, split three ways with three different yeasts. It's going to be the
    first run on my B...

    I'll echo these last comments; I was batch sparging and getting award winning beers, but
    occasionally the strike temp or infusion had been off enough that I was frantically grabbing
    ice or boiling wat...

    I soldered on a couple of 6 or 8 gauge bare wires to the coil with a hanger loop on each to
    hang over the lip of the pot. This keeps in off the heater elements.This is also used in my
    HLT. I just move...

    My only argument to having both, as mentioned in the post just above this, is the ease or
    complexity of the two switches (keyed vs mushroom) and the desire to keep the two functions
    (normal vs emergen...
