    rething the proce...

    Tks for the reply , I use a 89000 BTU burner and it does the job today, so I guess 9000w will

    I designed the system so the hot liquor tank would feed the mash tun via gravity and I add the

    where the hose is attached. I use silicone 1/2" hoses on the inlet and outlet. I have the same
    configuration ...
