Hello. I am currently using the new Dark Star Burner that my Wife got me for Christmas, along with a 10 gal pot with thermometer, ball valve, and false bottom. I am currently using them for extract brewing but a some point want to make the jump to all grain. My wife bought the pot with that in mind
I am using it to make my first 5 gal home grown recipe. During the steep I noticed I had a hard time keeping it set at a light/low/steep/mash temps. I eventually would like to switch to all grain. I was wondering if anyone else had trouble using dark star to keep a constant temperature like is needed for masing?
I've been having trouble but I live in Minnesota, the high today was 38 and it is dropping to -2 tonight so the wind is really strong and by normal peoples standards it is cold right now. So I believe my issues are mostly wind related but I am curious about weather or not other people have been able to use there Dark Star to do all grain. The wind is probably at 25-40 mph.
PS. I've been drinking since 9:00pm so if I'm not making sense maybe I will in the morning.
