    I bought a Reynolds Handi-Vac years ago for $10. Keep thinking about buying a FoodSaver type
    sealer, but this thing works, so I never get around to it. The price has doubled on Amazon, but
    it's someth...

    What advantage is there to it that makes it worth it?From BYO:In mash mixing systems where the
    mash is continually agitated, a similar degree of colloidal protection of insulated single

    With 30 gallon mash/kettle I could brew 20 gallons no-sparge!You're right. There's a point
    where more is not always better. Going from 5 to 10 gallons is manageable. Going from 20 to 40
    gallons . . . ...

    I don't get your point about about the sparge doubling the wort...(other than the obvious). For
    no sparge the same volume of liquid is used (for a given recipe) it just goes in all at
    once.Yeah. Just ...

    I have a Haier fridge also. Makes all kinds of swooshy, hissing noise when the compressor is
    running, but so far has worked fine.

    My goal is to sacrifice a bit of efficiency for a simple/quick brew day. Suggestions, words of
    warning, and alternate ideas all welcome!A single batch sparge adds maybe a half hour to my
    brewday, but ...

    God, that's a great idea! :D

    I'd throw it in the mash. If nothing else, you'll get a more aromatic brewday. :p

    Mash mixers make direct heating of the tun easier.I started mixing over four years ago for this
    reason. It's a MLT, not dedicated to mashing. Started by experimenting with a 15G stainless
    kettle on a ...

    hmmmm . . . . placed the order around noon on Monday. Last night I get an email saying that my
    money has been refunded with no explanation. Now the same induction burner is listed on the
    site for $323...

It was great meeting you, mate- sorry it didn't work out to meet up at KClingers, though.

I haven't yet sampled any of your beers- I'll need to set aside some time for proper tasting notes.
