  • Posted in thread: Anyone have opinions on Bayou SQ14 or SP10? on 02-03-2011 at 03:48 AM
    For what it's worth, I just did some research on this myself. I chose the SQ-14 and used it to
    brew a couple times already. My last brew was a 10-gallon extract batch (full boil) using a 26
    gallon pot...

    Just ordered one of these myself yesterday!

    Not saying that you won't be happy with the turkey fryer, but I wish I had gone straight to my
    large stainless kettle with drain valve and avoided the temporary purchase.

    The only thing about extending thye boil is that you need to decide to do that before you reach
    the end of your planned 60 minute boil!If you know accurately the evaporation rate of your rig
    and want ...

    Lead free solder is the stuff you want - it can't leach lead!Seriously though, that's what many
    folks do.

    I like Visio for schematics, although I usually find that I prefer my own template for certain
    sysmbols (relays, diodes, etc), although you could say that the included symbols are adequate.I
    think Vis...

    Had my wife stop by the nearest Target which showed "Limited Availability", and she came home
    with one for less than $10!The thing sure does look thin though, but I figure I'll try to see
    how it holds...

  • Posted in thread: What boil kettle to buy on 01-18-2010 at 05:24 PM
    I'm in the same boat as the OP. I think Morebeer and Jaybird both have SS 26 gal pots with
    valves (maybe the same exact one) already installed with the nice bottom. Less than $300
    shipped. It's a bit ...

  • Posted in thread: Help me wire my March pump to switch on 01-05-2010 at 02:00 AM
    If the pump is truly isolated from everything anyone would ever touch, then techincally, it
    doesn't matter which wire gets switched. However, it is much safer (and the only way this could
    be up to cod...

    I also add my LME at flameout, stir, and then start cooling. I recall a post on HBT about
    something similar in the past, with someone quoting the FDA time and temps required for
    pastuerization. Someth...
