Since it's aluminum it basically is a heatsink. It's not as efficient at releasing heat but
it's got a lot of thermal mass so it will spread out. I personally think it would be fine to
mount the SSR t...

Maybe I missed it but what holds the herms coil up above the heating element? Are they just
supported where the tube mates up with the enter and exit fittings?I may have to pick up three
of these. I w...

I don't want to give wrong advice but I think the element posts should show continuity (beep)

Whirlfloc is easy. Throw a tablet in the kettle with 10 mins left in the boil. Gelatin is a bit
more involved but totally easy. Lots of write-ups on how to rehydrate it and use it (I never

Do a big dry hop. You could make some hop tea and add it, but don't do a lot. Hops in water
