    My stainless steel deep sink, bought on ebay and this thing allows me to put 15 gallon pots in
    to the bowl and give a really good cleaning. I used a fiberglass laundry sink for 4 years, but
    the SS wit...

    I've used the TOP for months, if you follow the cleaning method it works pretty well but I
    suggest the following;1. Clean your mash tun - I mean clean it! 2. Add either PBW or One Step
    (my preference)...

  • Posted in thread: Got to test out the Tower of Power last night on 09-27-2012 at 12:05 AM
    I've got the controller and tower working and I can keep the mash at a constant temperature.
    The temperature will show a variance of +/-~5 to 10 percent of desired temperature on the
    controller. But I...

    I recirculate to get to the strike temperature and then turn off the pump to add the grains (I

    soak in and e...

    Something I should have said about recirculation - after the strike water reaches temperature,
    I shut off the tower pump and mashed in the grain. I stir for about 5 minutes and allow to
    soak, then sti...

    dermotstratton,Good questions, the recirculation of the mash takes place for the full mash as
    the temperature sensor is located in the tower. My last batch was MoreBeer's Consecration Clone
    and the ma...

    I got my QD fittings from www.barganfittings.com. Get the stainless steel, not the cheaper
    plated. System works well with the "T" on the mash tun. The HLT is off during mash allowing
    wort to recircula...

    Why would you need the second controller? How hard is it to keep the HLT at 168 - 170?I've done
    three batches with the tower of power and I'll post pictures tomorrow to show how I plumbed
    mine.
