Posted in thread: what do you use to check your wort temp before pitching on 09-02-2008 at 03:40 PM
Infrared thermometer.I have this one:Amazon.com: Mastercool MSC52224A Infrared Thermometer in
Case with FREE MSC52220 Analog Thermometer: AutomotiveThat's the coolest thing I've ever seen!

Yes, I selected "refrigeration" for "tubing type".Someone described the difference between
refrigeration and "type k" and "type l" in another thread, and the bottom line was homebrewers
don't want tho...

Wow, I really didn't mean to make you spend more time doing all those calculations for such a
small change in results. I'm glad I'm only cooling 5 gal. at a time...good luck to ya

Well, I'm no mechanical engineer, so take this for what it's worth:Heat capacity is not the
same as thermal conductivity. Copper and water's thermal capacities may be similar, however the

Well I've found a definite answer to #4.That is, of course, in addition to what Yuri_Rage had
posted (which is perfectly accurate, I just wanted to find out exactly what the differences

Others with a stronger physics background can correct me if I'm wrong but if you want to chill
50 gallons of wort with this you're quite undersized.50 gal (190 L) from 100C to 20C requires

I know a lot of you will say that I'm taking this whole thing too far, but we all bring to
brewing the skills, knowledge, and curiosity that we apply to the rest of our lives. Plus I
really like to po...

I religeously put mine in the dishwasher, heated dry.It gets out any bits of gunk I missed, and
has never failed to sanitize. No smell either.Is there any concern about rinse agents, like

OMG that place rocks. $129 for 50' of 3/8 at lowes vs $35 here?? Does seem too good to be true,
but also too good to not at least chance it. The IC might be coming my way sooner than I
thought.3/8 OD ...
