    I use the 6 gallon round winpaks. Been using them for 3 years now with no issues. They
    definitely suck in when they cool, but bounce back with a little hot water and cleaning. I pour
    them into a Speid...

    Thank you for the in-depth response. You are right, I was just popping off a gut-reaction post.
    I've played around quite a bit with microcontrollers, and that is where my BS detector was
    going crazy. ...

    Wait,I never saw how much liquid you were trying to boil. You said your pot is 70 quart? How
    full was it?

    my HD doesn't carry any 2000w lwd elements otherwise that's what I would have bought. Only high
    watt. So I went with the 5500 lwd element because I have read countless times where guys have

    I couldn't stomach the prices on mcmaster, so I went searching on Amazon. Turns out there are
    tons of options for stainless steel rod on Amazon that are cheap and ship with Prime. I got
    200mm x 3mm st...

    Regardless of the pink stains, the grey stringy mold is enough for me to replace the bucket and
    gear. The gear is cheap compared to a batch of decent beer, and better to chalk it up as a

    Try searching for session IPAs. I really enjoy Firestone Walker Easy Jack, which is somewhere
    around 3.5%. There is a thread here somewhere where a clone attempt has been made. Congrats on
    your achiev...

    Meh, if it's $60 for one of these plastic sankeys, and ~$90 for a stainless 5 gallon sankey, I
    think I'll spend the extra thirty bucks. Not because of safety concerns, but because I know the
    steel wil...
