Too much latency, by the time your MLT probe was telling you the temp was good, the upper
portion of the mash would be too hot.It is not hard to figure out the heat loss between your
RIMs and the MLT,...

So wouldn't it be best to put the temp probe into the mash since that's where the temp is most
important? Couldn't you plug one end of the tube and put the npt into the tun?

If you take the temp on the output, you could never get to your temp though, the wort would
have to be hotter on the output to raise the temperature in the tun. How is this effective?

I recently built a RIMS system with a RIMS tube from BrewHardware. It's 120V only. The
temperature probe is opposite the heat element in the tube. This seems like a pretty dumb
question considering I ...

If you whirlpool well and give enough time for it to settle you don't need the bazooka screen.I
agree with this. After my whirlpool I have a beautiful cone/pile of all my hops in the middle
of my kett...

Depending on your setup, $2 on gas/water/electric is probably quite low as well.

So, you just have the probe hanging out in mid air in the chamber? Or do you have it in a glass
of water or somesuch somewhere? I'm just kind of curious about just how your temp probe is
Posted in thread: Split batch resulted in two unintentionally different tasting beers on 09-03-2014 at 05:42 PM
How about the other half of the question? How are you monitoring temp in the chamber and, by
extension, how confident are you that both fermenters were the same temp? I'm really
questioning how well m...

Pretty sure I only took a measurement of the good batch and not the one that didn't turn out as
well and it's already carbed so I don't think I can get an accurate reading now unfortunately.

Hello,I made a 10 gallon batch of an IPA and then split it into two fermentors. Two 6.5 gallon
fermentors got the same exact yeast and same amount (two packages each of american ale) and
then were put...
