I was already planning on doing that, the first 2 kits at least, I ordered 4 because they were on sale. Perfect the process, then maybe I will try out the monstrosity or probably just build a new, proper mash tun.

The obvious downside is that you can't ever show it off to anyone without them subconsciously humming the theme from Deliverance, but I have a corona mill and my false bottom is a $2 sink strainer, so I salute your ingenuity.

I've got burlap bags duct taped to it now, for insulation on the outside. And also, the oxygen/hydrogen machine works way better than oxi-clean, but same idea. It would not be rust beer. Hmm... maybe it could work...

I thought sparging was the same thing as adding boiling water, but just adding enough to keep temp is not called sparging, I see.

You just want to see me become the laughing stock of all this site... No.

Okay, when I see whether or not it works, then I'll show pictures. Because, as we've already gone over, then you can laugh but you can't tell me it'll never work. Humpf!

Oh, you've never seen a big sawblade, to cut down big trees?
