I am building a decent sized system and am only a few parts away from getting started. I was hoping someone here might be able to help me out. I plan on using built in thermometers but would prefer to not use the weldless kind. What do I need to weld onto the kettle in order to be able to remove the thermometer for cleaning?
I was also told that tri-clamps are alot easier to use. What are the best types and where might I be able to find them. I am completely clueless about these, so any information on them would be great.
The final piece of advice is for using an oxygen diffuser? Does it really help? Is there a better way to get the oxygen to the yeast?
Any help on any of these topics would be hugely appreciated!
