I would recommend taking a look at the spigot on the 'Cube. I've got a standard Ice Cube, and I tried putting a bulkhead / SS braid in it, and the angle cause the braid to stick up at a 45 degree...

That is absolutely the way to mash out if you don't have direct heat.

In a typical 10-12 lb grain bill, I'll mash in with about 1.25 qts/lb, and dump in another gallon of near-boiling water to...

Home Depot sells a SS Toilet supply line, for much cheaper than the washer line or other lines I saw. It was mixed in with a lot of plastic lines, but just read the packaging carefully and make sure...

Nah, it's not too critical unless you're in a hurry. It's nice to see if your beer is done, but they sometimes cause more headache than they're worth. I always log my hydro readings in my journal,...

What issues, if any, are there with the holes you drilled not being airtight. Do you lose much cooling out the holes and/or does it run all the time? Would it be practical...
