    While this is a nice feature its also easily replicated with a drill and 3 seconds using any
    other enclosure like the HotPod.Never said it couldn't be replicated, just that the

    I have a Stilldragon housing as well. They are built to last and they have a safety feature
    most element housings do not have, they have a "weep" hole on the back of them. If you look at

  • Posted in thread: The Big SS Upgrade with reviews on 07-18-2016 at 08:53 PM
    If you plan on fly sparging with the SS Brewtech manifold, you'll be very disappointed. I
    purchased it thinking I could and it did not work very well. Water was not coming out of any of
    the smaller ho...

    Propane, yes. Sounds like I am on target. Learning a new kettle takes a few brews for volume
    adjustments.As someone else stated, if you want a lower boil off rate, lower the flame.My
    system is an all ...

    Boil off rate is affected by the size of the kettle, that's why boil off rates are different

    It's not necessary, but, it will help maintain temps more efficiently especially if you're
    brewing outside and it's a little windy. If you're brewing inside like a commercial brewery,
    then I would ski...

    Second vote for a compression fitting for the probe.

  • Posted in thread: Mill Question: Keep my 2 roller, or upgrade to a 3 roller? on 07-08-2016 at 08:57 PM

    tearing and shredding. The model I bought it is now the "pro" version.Have you brewed a batch
