    Why do you insist on telling me anodizing and painting are not the same thing? I did not say
    they were the same. I said painting was the poor man's anodizing and better than a shiny
    surface.I don't in...

    most newer cpu heatsinks are not black.....I would imagine that's because they are force air
    cooled usually and if you follow the Aavid link I posted above they mention:"An anodized finish
    will only a...

    First, my original comment was, if it is not black, paint it black. I assumed if it was not

    Sorry for derailing guys... I'm certainly interested to hear how this works. It takes the best

    I'm actually not sure what gauge it is. It was built by a custom restaurant/supply shop. I
    would imagine it's around 18 gauge. I'm not sure of the weight either as I never weighed it.

    The electric brewery - tested with foamboard and didn't have any issues.Yup - you could build
    something like this out of some sort of plastic board or similar and you'd be good. I'd want
    some strength...

    External RIMS. The beauty is the element never touches the wort (no scorching, less cleaning)
    Sounds like HERMS to me. ;)Kal

    Not sure if serious about painting I've never heard that, black heatsinks are black because
    they are chemically anodized, not painted.Correct. Never paint a heat sink. You're adding a
    layer of insulat...
