Posted in thread: Using Chrome parts in boil/mash on 09-06-2013 at 12:45 PM
Thanks, that is the kind of real-world insight I was looking for. I really like the idea of the
heat stick. I just think I need to modify it better to be food-safe. When I figure out the
parts list, I...

I've come across a few tutorials on building a "Heat Stick" for brewing. This is essentially a

the sides all a...
