    Maybe, what I really need is some higher tech equipt. I have a propane burner I salvaged from
    an old bar-b-que at the junk yard, a burner stand I made from a xmas tree stand and thats it.

    Well that makes me feel better. It's darn hard to keep my pot at 150, right now it's about 40

    I am making a pilsner urquell, with some grains and some extract. The grains were supposed to
    steep at 150 for 20 min. I accidently got them boiling, they boiled for about 2-5 min before I
    notices and...

    tips from Lar...
