I'm building a manually controlled HERMS for my brew bench. I've got a thermowerks thermometer

Not anything about kettles mind you, but i just ordered some stuff from fireman and was a
little underwhelmed. Picnic taps - requested 5 foot lines, and they're not even 3 and poor

OK. Problem solved.I had to modify the shutter. When I removed the shutter entirely, it worked

Worth giving it a try adjusting from a mostly closed position and slowly opening it until you
