Some Ply - I got a bit nervous after your post so i conducted a heat test of my own. It was really hot, no scorching or burning though - worse i guess is that it could crack. maybe should add a fire extinguisher to the side.

Yeah, or you could do like I did, use 2x6's. Go ahead, copy me some more.

What is your mash tun? Mine is a Home Deplorable 10 gal cooler. Hot tap water, a little less than 140F, warped the inside liner. It's still intact, but I'm not sure how many batches I'll be able to do with it. I've heard of these doing that with hotter temps, but at 140, not so much. I bought two because I was planning on a pump, but decided to go with a single cooler design. At least I have a backup, but I'm wondering if I should hunt down another Sanke.

Now that's a contraption... 10 Gallon batches I presume?

Contraption now that hurts badly made or unsafe. What are you basing that on your back side. Total no not 10 gallon but 20 with the wing.

Nice looking rig. Where are you all getting your burners, regulators, etc. I am interested in propane parts.

Thanks!

Wow, every time I check out this thread I get more ideas and in turn questions.

What is the optimal distance between burner and kettle bottom. I realize that flame pattern is dependent burner design, BTU output, etc. Assuming that the burner is choked correctly burning nice and blue, etc. What is the best way to determine the optimum distance?

Ideas welcome!

Rick
