    The only way you measured that high is if your batch is only 3 gallons. Did you do a partial

    broken. You...

    I don't know how you are loosing 9 degrees from the top to the bottom of an insulated mash
    tun.My SS Keggle has a delta of 2-3 degrees from top (hotter) to bottom (cooler). I use the
    temp probe toward...

    You defiantly want to bypass the chiller while circulating the mash, you don't want pieces of

    this config...

    You need a SPDT safety switch or generator transfer switch large enough to handle the full
    load. These are not very cheap...Adding a second spa panel will likely be cheaper (in
    material). You can even...

    It is probably finished. It is a malt forward beer, it is supposed to finish pretty high.If I

    1/4 cup of water will not spoil an entire batch; I wasn't sure how much you added.I doubt
    seriously this is a problem, but if you are picking nits then boil first then let cool to 150F
    before dissolvi...

    I don't really see an issue in your process, looks solid.It may be attributed to your
    ingredients, could the grain have been old or stale? This may have carried over to your
    finished product.How did y...

    Amazing deal on the keggles and chiller. Buy them now if they look to be in good shape.The keg
    isn't a great deal, it isn't a bad deal either.Can usually find pressure tested kegs with new
    o-rings for...
