I will be very interested to see the results.
I recently purchased the big banjo burner and except for vastly improving the roiling boil, it doesn't seem to heat the water any faster.

Listen to WBC, he has it right on the mark.
It is the PH of the MASH not the water!
5.2 may not hurt anything, but if you don't need it save the money for things you do need.

Water

You need to filter your water through a charcoal filter to take care of that, then it looks like you are good to go with just...

Stir Plate

I have built several of these and may have the solution to your problem or maybe problems.

Got Trub is right on the mark!
The PH of your water is not the most relevant factor. It is the PH of the mash itself. The addition of grains, especially the darker grains will reduce the PH of the...

I have the adjustable model. I bought the "bare bones" version and built the base and hopper for it. I can crush 15 pounds of grain in one run and using my 1/2inch drill motor it takes about 3...

Water

Do not use softened water for AG. Been there, done that got the T shirt.
It will work fine for extract but the softener will take out the minerals you need and add sodium.

Growlers

I agree, I think you should send those ole growlers to me!
Seriously, except for having to drink all that beer at once I think it should work providing you have a good seal on the cap.

Just a thought.
