    After about 100 brew sessions my SYL2352 stopped working because it got covered in hot sticky

    There are 'brew jackets' being sold that look similar to what you are trying to do. Take a look

    You might be better off in the long run with a digital sugar refractometer.I have the Milwaukee
    MA871. The reason for the Tilt is that I don't have to open the fermentor at all once I seal it
    up. The ...

    I have two of the "tilt" hydrometers. Actually I have two of the original Brewometers (they
    changed their name to Tilt). I have never had a problem with either of them. Calibrated them
    and they work f...

    Try this. In the Mash steps in the recipe itself. Edit the mash step to be "Infusion". That
