I never measured the temperature in the hex but I would usually use the hex to heat the strike water while I was conditioning and milling the malt. I never ran into any issues with that and I could...

I used a Dremel with a router bit and then cleaned it up with a file. It was really messy and noisy but I haven't figured out a better way.

The output side of the HERMS or RIMS is the best place to put the temperature probe. Placing it in the mash tun or the mash exit would lead to overshooting.

Correct.



Of course I've thought of monitoring the temp of the mash. I have a separate thermometer with the probe inside the mash tun. That doesn't mean it's the right place to control the heat...

I have 4 of them now and they're all holding up OK. Perhaps a little noisier than when they were now but I should probably blow the dust out of the fans one of these days.

Well, you might not be able to fit the Ranco in such a compact enclosure but it'll work just fine. As far as I know they can handle 16A.
