I just don't trust steeping hot water in plastic, I like to do what I can to avoid it. But I'm probably going to gt a cooler anyway.Any particular reason you're thinking of a keggle for your MLT over an insulated cooler?
Do you need 3 kegs for HERMS to work? I still haven't really figured out how the process works.only drawback to a cooler is that it doesn't impress people as much as 3 shiny kegs on your stand
Im going to do my first mash in a keggle tomorrow. I heard that using something as simple as a blanket to wrap the keg in will help you hold temps. Ill let you know how it goes.i used mine first time yesterday, I did heat the strike water in my MT so as to not lose heat in the water transfer. As the strike temp got close I started circulating to make sure I was getting a good reading, cut the heat and gave it a few minutes to stabilize. Mashed in and was a little hot, kept stirring to get it down and settled about 153. Covered it with a lid and lost about 3 degrees in the first 40 minutes. It was hot outside, im sure that helped. I put a small fire under it and started a recirculation and got it back up in about 2 minutes. I will eventually go with some insulation, was watching the welding blanket thread because i want to be able to direct fire.
Thanks, I was aiming the stream of piss for your cheerios. You skipped over the fact kegs do heat sink, are heavy and don't clean well because of the skirts.Hard to count your post as useful information when you brand everyone with a keggle a thief. Many are legitimate purchases.
Opinions shrouded in your brand of accusation and criticism will always be ignored, or ridiculed. Good luck, meister.Thanks, I was aiming the stream of piss for your cheerios.
I'd rather not keep seeing them billed as the greatest thing since sliced bread. Fact is there are better bk/mt/hlt vessels out there than kegs. However that's just my opinion and apparently that's been determined as useless.
