Yes, this is how I brewed my first one and it worked well. Just make sure you go well past your desired final sourness before boiling because of the dilution you mention. I expect it will take you at...

BWs are traditionally brewed with a short (or no) boil. This helps limit bitterness due to additional AA extraction and minimizes any color impact of a longer boil. DMS is typically not an issue...

Thanks for this suggestion! This is the route I decided to go. Now I just need to figure out how to wire it as I've only wired standard three way switches previously.

Has anybody created such a thing? Most of those out there, including mine, have chrome-plated brass sink drain pipe for the body and PVC at the top. Mounting the elements directly in the kettle is a...

I also dug a bit more on this and realized that those Camco heating elements are a combination of chromium and nickel, like all SS. They just aren't clear on what the combination looks like, but I'll...

Thanks, these are some great options. I especially like that rotary switch, though will need to do some research on how to wire something like that.

That's a good suggestion, but I believe I'd need an SSR to accomodate that, correct?

Switch Options for 2 Heating Elements?

I am planning to dump my heatstick due to lack of food safety (mine has chrome and PVC) and plan to install elements directly in my BK and HLT instead.

I do not have enough power to run both at...

The boil occurs after the pitch, which allows you to kill the lacto once it's achieved your goal and so it will not affect your downstream equipment.



If I recall correctly, I let the lacto go...

My assumption about energy usage is that you are heating liquid in your HLT for the entirety of your mash, even if just to maintain its temp. With a RIMS you spend some time...
