  • Posted in thread: Mashing temps on 05-24-2015 at 12:52 PM
    I have made approx. 10 biab brews and struggle with the mash temp every time. I heat my water
    to approx 160 for a mash around 152. When I add my grains, the temp drops down to 140. I will
    then turn on...

    Do you have to have a recirculating pump/whirlpool with direct electric heating to avoid
    scortching? Not sure this has been addressed, but if you're going to turn the element on during
    the mash the ge...

    I think you really want one of these instead. lamp dimmer may be something similar but it's
    hard to see inside that white plastic cover.Rheostats work by inserting a variable resistance
    into the cir...

    I think you need to plug the wart into the wall and put the rheostat/dimmer into the circuit
    after that.Ah, now that makes sense.

    If the pump is DC could you not wire a rheostat to the pump. Is a DC pump like a DC computer
    fan? It would be like the homemade stirplate and a DC fan? At the same time wire a switch and
    you can turn ...

    I throttle the pump from the ball valve of the kettle. No problems whatsoever. I haven't had
    any cavitation from these pumps as they don't pull so hard like a chugger would.I did the same
    thing when I...

    I have a question for you all. Should I be supplying hose clamps with the systems? I haven't
    for ease of cleaning and didn't find more than the odd drip but if you are experiencing more
    than that I wi...

    I've ordered some clamps myself, but I wonder just how much pressure you think will be involved
    here. I'd guess not much, as there is always the other end of the tube to release the pressure.
    I want t...

    Silicon is not like PEX that has a memory. You will need a low pressure clamp like the little
    fishes clamps pressure ratings are very optimistic and you need to account for the OD of your
    hose after...

    Also, I'm curious how I'm going to control the pump's flow rate without a valve on the
    discharge. In my line of work we almost always use control valves to keep centrifugal pumps
    from running out on t...
