    For recirculating, I like the mesh baskets, but they are spendy. If that's not on the table
    then a good bag and false bottom should do the trick. The more surface area you have the to

    A 20-30min mash will save some time, you could also look into short boils (I've never done it).
    Aside from that I think you won't see much time savings without some equipment investment. Temp

    They do have good customer service. I'm not surprised they came up with a controller, but
    there's nothing like building your own.

    Slow and steady, low speed high torque. You'll get the hang of it, the key is to use some oil

    Saisons are more of a feeling than a style. As long as it's bone dry and relatively light it's
    a saison to me. Otherwise throw in whatever's on the farm, I like wheat and rye (not at the
    same time) an...

    dishwasher sometimes.I use it in a recirculated eBIAB system, so it keepsthe grain off the

    I recall it tripping one at my buddy's house (but there was also a freezer plugged into it). Or
    maybe the outlet is 20 amp?GCFIs do not like fridge/freezer compressors or large pumps. Find

    That's a nice little controller. There's no reason you can't use all those parts (except the
    enclosure of course) in a Kal style controller if you decide to go that way eventually. I will
