    Couple of things. You haven't mentioned anything about the condition of your heating element at
    the end of the brew day. Is it covered in scorched black stuff? Any time I've scorched a batch,
    this has...

    The only problem I've personally had doing what you describe is head retention issues. From
    what I've experienced, if you sit for too long at those lower temps this is effectively a
    protein rest, whic...

    I saw that as well. As a Grainfather user, a couple of things that stand out to me about this
    unit: 1) these units (Grainfather included) are too tall to use on a counter top and still be
    able to rais...

    For anyone reading this thread, debating the purchase of a Grainfather, here's an interesting

    Just saw this in my latest William's Brewing catalog. Very, very compelling for brewing in my
    country cottage. Looks to be a $300 Grainfather alternative.

    Taller and narrower also had the benefit of easier distribution of wort during recirculation.
    With a short and wide kettle it becomes more difficult to evenly distribute the recirculated

    Do not recommend! It looks like an identical product to had

    One last thing. Some people mentioned boil off and not wanting to lose wort. You are actually
    loosing steam and chemicals. I saw a BeerSmith youtube with Randy Mosher (I think), where he
    said that you...
