so a quick question guys, i am planning to use my electric BK or potentially my mash tun / herms coil once that is built. however, i am concerned about the element. what are people doing to protect the element / not melt the bag when using the bk?

i have seen collanders inverted with a whole cut, but that'd be a big collander for my 5500 watt, ulwd, ripple element

I'll look at the thrift stores for the crock pot, scored a pump from my parents who had a fish tank that sprung a leak

Food porn! Awesome and inspirational.

I just came back from Goodwill with a sweet, harvest gold coffee urn. Since it heats from the bottom, and it's tall and narrow, do I need to deal with a pump, or will convection be enough ?

I think you still want to have the water moving around.



The blue tube on the right is the airline.

Thanks, Revvy! Is that an aquarium air pump? I think that I have one of those somewhere.

I plugged my urn in last night, and it started making these moaning sounds. Now I've never used a big coffee urn before, and maybe that's normal, or maybe it's haunted. I guess time will tell. I want to try to clean up some scale inside it before I try to heat it again.

Yeah it's the same little 20 dollar guy I show in my original cooler design.



Yeah coffee urns tend to make strange noises as they're firing up. I think it's metal expansion as it heats up.

Here it is in all it's glory during a test run. I figured out I need to heat water on the stove first though as it takes a while to heat up
