thanks for the reply Brumateur, i wonder which is easier to do? (i'm quite practical)Perhaps it
has a step-down voltage inside, that i could connect a computer fan to?hhmmmmm?Done right you

Yes it will. You have to dilute the enzymes a huge amount to avoid conversion. You might slow
it down but it won't stop.Good to know. What ratio of water to grain do you recommend for

You can do that, but if you have grains that can be converted, that won't happen with a thin
mash. But maybe you are right.

Brewed a session IPA last night. It had 1.5 lbs of grains (12g crystal 20, 8g biscuit, 4g
crystal 40). I soaked it in 1.875 qts of water (1.5 x 1.25) at just under 160F. I almost always
use a ratio of...

You need liquid flux rather than the paste you're used to. Other than that it's pretty easy.
See this thread for a lot of hints. I should get an award for reading all 119 pages of that

Thanks for both of you gentlemen for clearing up and more importantly showing me the post
describing how JB Weld failed.With soldering, I've only done it with copper pipes using a
propane torch. Anyth...

Why not just solder the nut on? I have done it a few times and worked out great.I wouldn't
think that the solder would hold up to the torque you may apply when tightening the element.
But if it has wo...

I'd appreciate it if you could check on the type of JB Weld. I'm assuming it handles the
torquing when you screw in a new element and tighten it down. Did you do any roughing up of the

I think quite a few people have been using it. I have on mine. It's been about six months now
with no leaks.Did you put your nut on the outside or inside? What type of JB Weld did you use?
