I normally plan on extra after I sparge only about a gallon or 1 1/2. And boil it about 5-10
min and store in sterilized quart jars. And use a quart at a time for a yeast starter for my
next brew in l...
Posted in thread: Difference between 25A SSVR with rheostat vs 40A SSVR on 01-09-2014 at 06:42 PM

I think what you really have to decide is if the possibility of brewing back to back batches

Auberins.com has some of the best quality PIDs and SSRs and a heat sink for under $100 prolly.

Posted in thread: Coleman Extreme 70qt for mash tun??? on 12-07-2013 at 08:24 PM

tubing post. It helps immensely.Great pics. That's exactly what I'm think , but I thought I was

I was thinking about setting up the HLT with a 4500 w element and a PID. So when I sparge the

HERMS system. ...
