    I plugged in the element to the controller then to the pump and then into the outlet WITHOUT
    WATER IN THE KETTLE and it was on for a few minutes before the circuit blew. I have an
    electricity phobia t...

    Tannin extraction requires high pH and temps above ~170F. You will not extract tannins by
    pressing on your bag.My vote would be to go full volume mash if you have the space in your
    kettle. I'm a sparg...

    Personally, I think this guy has one of the best deals out there right now. I bought the system
    with a 9 gallon kettle and 2 x1500 watt elements for $649. You can upgrade to the 11 gallon
    kettle for a...

    Interesting stuff TW. Might have to get a copy of that book. Sounds like a great read.I reckon
    the aspects you mention will be subtle if present at all. Perhaps theoretical rather than
    detrimental on ...

    So, tonight was my first time doing a BIAB batch with my new equipment. I have an 11 gallong
    Bayou Classic kettle with the SS basket which I put my bag in. I was doing an IPA recipe w/ 13
    pounds of gr...

    I am somewhat lost with all the volumes and gravities given. But, collecting the proper volume
    is critical. If the recipe calls for a final volume of 3 gallons and you are collecting 3.5
    gallons your ...

    6. Emptied dunk sparge wort back into BK and started the boil with just over 4 gallons of
    volume.Just want to make sure we're all on the same page here, but it sounds like you started
    your boil with 4...

    Well, my most recent attempt was improved on a number of levels. Learning as I go:1. Took a
    pre-boil gravity reading and it was 1.042, which was my post-boil last time.2. Did an iodine
    test and had su...

    Good to know.So $18 for step bit.$6 per oring/nut. $30~ for element. Then what else would I
    need to get, just the power cord for the element?Since you have the Hot Rod you've already got
    the element a...
