I converted a normal regulator to accept a paintball cylinder. I used a remote bottle adapter &
a pipe nipple. Works great & i can turn the gas off if needed.

I finished a (120volt) box like the on in the pic above about 2 weeks ago Only used it in a

If you have a 20Amp outlet go with a 2000watt element, You might want a 1500watt heatstick also
to reduce your time to boil (plugged into a 2nd circuit). For your kettle look at the Bayou

I have a 6x6x4 box from Lowes (Carlon brand) and a SYL-2352 PID has about 1/4" to spare if top

I've got a 20qt from MoreBeer & it has the same tooling marks in it. I guess this justifies the

I've thought about the vertical element but the small batch size (3.5g) & grain bag make it

element. The ba...

Can't sleep so I'm up testing an idea.eBIAB kettle with a solid false bottom (upside down pie
tin?) with a riser tube off to the side that stops at or just below the surface of the
mash/wort. Much lik...

I've been lurking around here for a while so...Um... yeah...Some people might say I've got a

The 120v system is for brewing in my apartment where 240v is not available. I already have the
PIDs, kettles, elements, SSRs for both systems. If 7500w is available why not use it.
