    You got me there. I can't step mash very easily. You may be in a colder situation then I am. A
    towel works for me.Yup colder climate for sure. I don't brew in the winter as I can't use the
    garden hose...

    Hi, I've got an electric two kettle rims system. In my boil kettle I have a the regular
    (vertical) bottom valve and thermometer fittings. Just off to the side of these, 4" up, I have
    a whirlpool fitti...

    3" seems high to me. If you will be drilling-swaging-soldering triclover ferrules, curvature of
    the base of your pot will be the lower limit of how far off bottom your element should be. You
    will not ...

    Short answer.....No. In my mind I don't loose to much heat during the mash.Long answer,I've

    target mash t...

    Also what is a good distance to drill the hole for the element from the bottom of the pot? 2"
    or 3"?

    We actually use a Chillzilla as a HERMS. We have a small 9 gal electric kettle that supplies
    the water bath to circulate in the other tube and cycle the Wort in the inner tube. We use a
    BCS to control...

    Maybe you'll get an idea of what you don't want from my process. I currently use two vessels
    (kinda) for my brewing. Though my process is labor intensive, yours doesn't have to be. I heat
    my strike wa...

    You can make your own over the side whirlpool out of copper. It is easy to find the parts and
    there is no drilling or punching your pots. It is fairly easy to learn to "sweat" copper. Just
    be sure to ...

    OK, well I guess I can always buy the pots and do the holes myself...probably cheaper also.

    Hello, So I found a pretty good deal on a 16g stainless pot that comes with a 3 piece ball
