    Check your ph, especially during sparging.

    There is also a good spreadsheet and great discussion in the brew science forum. I've used
    various incarnations of that spreadsheet with excellent results. Also get a pH meter.

    Do you have the PID controlling this in manual mode?For diagnostics, I would recommend a
    wattmeter. How much each is drawing? Also, perhaps you have a bad SSR?I, like others, think you
    should be boili...

    Thanks, Bobby!

    I just built a customer a hot liquor tank with a coil using these fittings and it wasn't too
    difficult. I had 2" of space between the coil and the wall of the pot and it was enough to get
    an adjustabl...

    I haven't used either as my hlt w/ herms is in a wide 15 gal, but the through hole fittings
    look like they'd allow you to push the coil closer to the inner wall that using the 90 degree
    fittings. The ...

    Since no one responded, I went ahead and ordered the coil with bends. Guess I'll see how much
    clearance is left before buying bulkheads.

    This grain mill was certainly one of the top contenders on my list. I ended up buying a Kegco 3
    roller adjustable mill w/hopper from Beverage Factory. The only thing I need to do is make a
    base for it...

    How difficult is it to compress these onto a HERMs coil. Seems like the bottom one ma be
    difficult, as it's essentially welded.I'm wondering ease of install compared to your weldless
    compression bulkh...

    I'm thinking updating my Electric HERMS system to have a permanent HEX coil in the HLT rather
    than moving my cheap copper, small diameter immersion chiller back and forth. The pot I'm using
    has a 13.7...
