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...

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
