What kind of tri-clamp fits to the sanke fitting? I don't know that I've seen this done before!
I also really dig the control box. Reminds me of the digital trainer we got in school.
Posted in thread: Do you really need a control panel for e-kettle? on 04-07-2012 at 02:18 PM
If you're hell-bent on not building any sort of controls you may be better off forgetting about
10g batches and just going with a 2000W-ish 120V element for 5g batches. You could run that

I'm not e...

Well, I brewed this on Jan 17th and started cracking bottles last night. LOVE IT! It finished
pretty dry (1.010) due to missing my mash temp. Even though it's a bit dry it's still creamy
