I use digital temperature sensors. I do not let glass near my beer either. I ferment in Sanky kegs now. It is much better for safety.

You should disassemble. Any old crud stuck in the poppet spring could ruin a full keg of beer. I know because in my earlier days this happened to me.



That's OK if the temperature in the keg...

You are getting some conversion if it is tasting sweet. The iodine test works well so trust it. An oven is a poor way to mash. You are much better off with a cooler/mash-tun. They are not too...

If you are thinking 10 gallon you need a 15 gallon boiler and a 15 gallon cooler/mash-tun. Without extra room you get weaker beers + less efficiency due to room in the mash-tun and boil-overs in the...

You have done well. You will get good eff when you use a 10 gallon cooler/mash-tun and can use 1.25 to 1.5 qts per LB grain. Use 180 to 185 F sparge water and that will help too.
