I'm picturing grains with "O-faces," then big smiles.

Went to my Local Hardware store and picked up a Roll of Water Heater Insulation. Has an R Value of 11. Should work. After I rack this Wee Heavy to Secondary, I am all over the Wrap the new MLT Project. Then, Mayby, just mayby, if the Aliens look upon me with the right light and proper faces, I might even get to Brew Tonight

Did I mention How ROCKING my Wee Heavy is tasting already!?!?!? This stuff is going to ROCK This Fall.

I have heard of people using the water heater blankets as well. If I remember correctly, be careful about bringing that stuff in contact with flames when you are firing your MLT. Of course, that holds true for any insulation you use
