I am using parts I already have. That includes right angle plugs. My father in law owns an electrical company so freebies trump all the fancy twist lock plugs.

You will be surprised how quickly you heat water and how efficient your brewery has just become!

With 14 gallons of water in the kettle, it took 40 minutes to go from 53 degrees to 162. Then from 162 to boil in 20 minutes.

I have the same kettle and did my recirculation with a street elbow and some camlocks through the lid. Allows me to close the lid all the way.

I have those parts already. I am installing tomorrow before my first brew. Also need to finish enlarging the holes in my basket. Should have an IPA in the fermenter by dinner.

I have the 62Qt Bayou Classic and am going to do this on the top side of my Mash Tun instead of on the lid. I checked and the fitting will work above the lip there on the pot. It's not enough for a bulkhead, but the plastic one here is different.

Just started heating my water for a tasty IPA. My first brew on the new system is underway.
