    I have a cooper hood with the silicon gasket for my 20L. I posted a video several pages back
    showing a comparison of the boil with and without it. It definitely helps produce a vigorous
    boil but deali...

    When you manually control the BM, does the unit do an automatic pump rest or did you do that
    manually as well? If so what was your time frame to rest and for how long?I didn't notice any
    pump rests in...

    Just checked my notes. The gravity at the end of the first mash was 8.6 brix. The gravity after
    the second mash was 17.4 brix. Again I split the 16 lb grain bill into two 8 lb mashes and
    didn't sparge...

    It was a batch of Mike "Tasty" McDole's infamous Janet's Brown Ale.I introduced two variables
    into the mix on this batch so it's hard to draw conclusions on efficiency. In addition to the
    reiterated m...

    I did a reiterated mash this past weekend on my SBM20L. The total grain bill was around 16 lbs
    split into two 8 lb mashes. I manually controlled the SBM and did a single infusion for both
    mashes. At t...

    The built-in was reading higher/warmer. The pump was running the entire time. I watched temps
    during the mash as well. They only started to drift out of sync in the last part of chilling.
    Otherwise th...

    Possibly. I had mine set to 101C for both shots in the video.Another note - I drilled a small
    hole in the lid for the long stem thermometer I posted awhile back. I watched the temps while
    chilling on ...

    Yes, it would foam out of the hood like a bad science experiment. I actually had to add more
    drops as I went along to keep things in check.-Chris

    Catching up on the thread today - we're closing in on 1,000 posts!Yes, I'm still using the
    whirlpool mod - 7 batches with it and no problems so far. While it helps, the whirlpool isn't
    very strong so ...

    Yambor - yes, I'm simply replacing what I loose to grain absorption. I've embraced metric since
    I got the SBM. It hurts a little at first but you get over it. ;~)-Chris
