It is amazing how much trouble we go through for beer.

Sweet rig - nice vid! Thanks for doing that.

One observation: When you add O2, you were getting some really big bubbling going on. I thought I read somewhere that you want to keep the bubbles really small, and set the reg so that the bubbles barely make it to the surface. I don't think there is anything wrong with the bigger bubbles, just less O2 making it into the wort.

I could be wrong - it's happened before. Just ask my ex

I noticed that too. I run mine much slower. If you have a huge tank and don't care about waste, no problem. Since I'm running out of a medical tank that I don't think I'm going to get anyone to fill for me, I am careful not to waste.

I started out that way but by the time I grabbed the camera the top was already covered in bubbles and you really couldnt tell that I was doing anything, so I tried to turn it up with my left hand whaile the camera was rolling. It was up so high the regulator made that loud screech you can hear in the video

I have a medical regulator but no tank. I am afraid to ask the local medical supply place how much it is to buy a tank.

Great video SuperiorBrew! I wish I had the means for a rig like that. Quite impressive.

Do you leave your mash burner on for the whole mash or only when it drops?

I find that with the top open and the garage heat set to 50º - 60º I mash in and let it sit for 10-15 minutes, by then the temp has dropped from 154º to 152º I then start to slowly recirculate for 30 seconds or so till the little grain pieces stop and then I open it up to wide open and start the burner. With the burner as low as it goes the temperature stays at 153º to 154.5º the whole 45 minutes that I recirculate.
