Posted in thread: Show us your element housings/pots. How did you do it? on 12-31-2013 at 06:22 AM
Here's mine. I was trying to get something simple and low-profile with a detachable cord.
They're 120v 1500w elements, so I wired them up to a standard NEMA 5-15 plug ( your typical
north American hou...

I've been trying to figure out a simple and elegant solution for attaching an outlet into my
heating elements. I didn't want a big electrical box hanging off the side, and wasn't fond of
some of the s...

How about a tri clover fitting ? This setup is a dream for e kettles . Simply unclamp it to
take the element out. Can also end cap it and use on a regular burner. Your not married to

Careful with the 208v on it...... on a 240v system you would be drawing 8000w on that

I brewed this tonight but my boil was too vigorous. I ended up with an OG of 1.050. I topped of

Posted in thread: is a 52 quart cooler too big to use for 5 gal batches on 07-01-2013 at 04:47 AM
I use a 48-qt cooler (the generic cheap blue Coleman), and would generally only lose a degree

ALL of the...
Posted in thread: Forgot to add the crystal 75.. options? on 07-01-2013 at 04:41 AM
I say take the 1lb of crystal 75..........and the rest of the grains to make up the recipe and
make another batch!Leave the original the way it is. It's not going to be exactly what you
expected, but ...
Posted in thread: Well screwed that pooch on 07-01-2013 at 04:36 AM
so you put 4lb of grain and 3lb of DME to make up for your short-comings......How big of a

Here in Canada, the limit isn't how much you've made in a year, it's simply how much you have
on-hand at any given time. I think it's something equivalent to 100 gallons of home-brew beer
in your hous...

Also, explore no-chill brewing. Just don't put hot wort into glass carboys, please. I think you
do have to adjust your hop additions to compensate longer periods at high temp.Word. I have an
extra 5 g...
