I have no real way to measure RPM but I run it slow - slow enough that it drags on the drill's motor.

I've added it after cooling on several occasions without any problems but I added it when fermentation is up and going when infection is less likely anyway. I've decided it doesn't add much/any honey...

Either can be done but just pouring heated water into the cooler is probably done by 98% of us. Adding an electric heating element to a cooler is cool, but much more expensive and you need the right...

Sounds like too many lawyers in the mix to me. If it can obtain and maintain the right heat it will sterilize your wort. Is there anything in the pressure relieve system that might get clogged by...

FWIW I like Yooper's recipe, but I wouldn't use any 2-row. I'd use 4# wheat, 6# Pils. Not sure if you'd taste the difference or not.

My 2 cents: Clean your beer lines. You said you use Star-San on them but that only sanitizes. Run beer line cleaner through the lines. Disassemble and soak/clean the faucets and the disconnects. If...

Note that the problem with saying "just strike at 12 degrees over mash temp" is that you have to always be using grains of the same temp with the same ratio of grain to strike water (qt/lb). If you...

From my experience: 5 min isn't enough to preheat a cooler. 15 is better.
I don't do any calculations on the mash tun. It's just blank in BeerSmith. If it's preheated to the same temp at the strike...

No. The mash is not an exothermic process. Rising temps means the mash wasn't fully mixed when the first temp was taken. Stir like crazy, then check temp.

I just checked the prices at Yakima valley hops. The hops and the shipping are cheap, so I don't think I'm risking much. I'll go ahead and order in bulk.
