I suppose the range is stated as 60-72F, but I haven't had very good attenuation below 67F.
Should I kick it down further than 68F into the 64-66F range since it was probably imparting
more flavors at...

Last saturday I brewed an IPA with O.G. of 1066 and pitched a wyeast 1056 1.5L starter at 70F.
From saturday afternoon to Sunday afternoon vigorous fermentation brought the temp up to ~73F

Hmmm, I also see in the manual that there is a 20 minute safety shut off delay. It would be
much more useful to find some technical drawings on this model - or just this type of tankless

The manufacturers specs say that it needs 1.3 gal/per minute to activate, so I don't know if a
ball valve alone is enough to regulate flow. Its highest rated water temp is 150*F. It doesn't
seem like ...

I was just browsing around the internet for LP gas tankless water heaters, and I stumbled upon
a fairly cheap model. Does anyone have experience with this kind of water heater? Could it be

WoweeZowee - How long to you fire-up under the kettle when you do that? Better yet, can you
explain your process - you see the temp drop a little, fire it up, hold it for so long,
etc?Before mash-in I...

Do either of you (or anybody) mash in a standard pot or a false-bottom pot without adding heat
during conversion? If that can be done, I'd be ok with going with the bigger pot/false bottom

Just picked up the steel today. The supplier did not have the originally specified material, so
I went with 14 gauge 3/4" x 1 1/2" tubing. A little on the heavy side, but the stand was

I know this is off topic but, I found something interesting the other day. Burners are rated in
BTUs/HR. The first one you posted claims 210,000 BTUs/HR. The thing I found is a 20Lb tank of

I am thinking about getting couplers welded to my keg kettles, rather than having weldless
fittings all over my new brewing stand, but I am unsure of who or what I am looking for in a
welder. I live i...
