    I've read about people using these for mashing. Thanks for the video and tips.Couple of
    questions. Why mash out? Have your considered using your oven during the mash to hold temps?
    (works like a charm...

    It's definitely a little expensive, but personally I think it's worth it since you can dial in
    an exact temp, set a timer, and then more-or-less walk away.Plus I also use the sous vide
    cooker for its ...

    I recently experimented with using an Anova Sous Vide Cooker to precisely control mash
    temperature. It made mashing much easier, and I made a little youtube video and writeup of the
    process here: re...

    I thought I'd show off some beer storage that I built over the holidays this year.The main

    surface on the ...

    FuzzeWuzze: I tried out the hall effect + magnet approach too. It seems like it should work,
    but there are some things that are tricky about it:1) With a strong rare earth magnet a typical
    hall effect...

    Lord Ulrich: That's a good point about the limits of the sensor. I think I had 60 pounds fully
    on a sensor rated at 75 pounds max and it drifted within minutes. I haven't tried it with a
    sensor rated ...

    There was a pretty good thread on weight based measurement here. It even includes a good
    spreadsheet that takes into account the temperature and dissolved CO2.I was able to replicate
    the results with ...

    mattd2: I tried out the differential pressure sensor idea a few years ago. It has potential but
    you need a VERY sensitive pressure sensor (which also makes the sensor expensive). Anyway, I
    posted my e...

    I'm also really interested in the Fermonitor. From the pictures on, I suspect
    that the Fermonitor uses the hydrostatic pressure method of determining density (described
    here: done som...
