What type of magnet you use? (If I were answering me, I would say a magnetic one)

Of course it was fast, you got a bunch of nerds and happy beer drinkers seeing a title that involves a woman.
I just used a large 3 dollar bar magnet from Radio Shack. If I go out today i will stop and get the part number if you would like.

Instead of spacing the fan to bring it up it works better if you space the magnet off of the fan with wood. This prevents the magnet from interfering with the motor and it runs smoother.

Rare earth magnets are preferred over ferrite because of their strength. For those that are building stir plates spend a little extra and get rare earth or pull them out of an old hard drive.

Oh no don't go to such lengths, I was curious, I do have a lot of old hard drives sitting around (like 40 sometimes its nice to hoard electronics).

Although I love the construction, and the box you used for your fan.

Thanks I am happy with it now. I am looking forward to my first all grain brew Sat.

What is did not show was that I drilled a bunch of holes in the back, and both sides to allow for air flow.

One more question, I love the box as I said, though I am a rummager and use what I have type person, did you get this from Radio Shack as well or something? It seems an ideally suited containment device for your uses. (I was going to fashion one out of wood, which would probably be less effective.

Yes I got it from Radio Shack also. I figured if I was going to do it I may as well make it decent. My wife complains about things looking like I built them out of garbage.

Congratulations and best of luck! I did my first AG last weekend and The only extract I will ever use again is for starters. It's so much more fun that extract IMO and I already have my next 2 batches planned and lined up.

I admit, I was expecting something MUCH older. But, when it comes to trailer trash isn't that how it always is.

Cute kid.

The stirplate has been running for over 24 hours and has not started to get hot so I am going to call it a good.
Thanks, she is the terror in the house she has 2 brothers 4 and 6. She rules with the iron fist. The boys move out of her way most of the time.
