Do you have a build thread for your motorized corona mill? What kind of motor is that (HP, RPM, etc)? Did you just attach it straight to the mill without any kind of RPM reducer?

Also love the idea of the ss pot inside the cooler. Gonna have to bookmark this thread for when I upgrade in the future (getting ready to start BIAB AG).

I can look up the specs on that motor but it is a gear reduction motor. I think it has an output of 90rpm. That was a free score like that. It was missing the couple so I only have $6 in it.

The mash tun with the ss liner only lost two degrees in an hour mash.

Cool, thanks. I've got a 1/2 HP 1725 rpm motor (for free), but I don't like the idea of spending almost $100 buying pulleys, a belt, and all the couplings I would need. I guess I'll just plan on using the drill method for now...

I think it is time to try stepping the mash temp up.



This is from stout tanks and kettles

I need to update this. I have not used the rims yet but I'm boiling my first batch in over a year with an electric element in a keg. Using pulse width modulation and a ssr to control the 220 volts to the element.
