    I have the 20 gallon setup. I use a Therminator plater chiller that feeds into an immersion
    chiller in a bucket of ice water. Chills the wort down to below 68 by the time it hits the

    I'm not sure of the actual ppm. We used like 4 mls in 6 oz's of water. We couldn't detect it at
    4 ml but when upped to something like 16 mls we could taste (at least we thought) a bit of

    I have a Bru Gear - I don't use it for induction but it's a great kettle. I have the Pro Boiler

    Perfect! Thanks so much for the pics....I've been wondering if people have done this. Guess
    I'll be ordering one of these in the near future! Did you need to use any extra sealant? Or
    were the gaskets...

    Here are two recent pics. One of the front showing the thermowell next to the spigot and
    another of the inside so you can see how far it goes into it. So far, they have been working
    perfectly. No issu...
