I can't think of any reason for temperature control on the Boil Kettle. What you will want is to have a rolling boil in the Kettle to facilitate Hops isomerization, volume reduction, and sterilization of wort. But boiling is boiling, and all a temperature control would do is make it either Boiling or Not Boiling (212 Deg F or Not 212 Deg F).Is there any reason not to make the boil kettle temp controlled, just like the HLT and MLT? Pros vs. Cons
:cheers:Nickeldeposit said:Carlscan26: Just finished looking through that article and it does make a good argument for automating the boil kettle. I think I’m going to just so I can have the flexibility to do different things, plus the three controllers are already purchased. And if anyone is going to go the electric route my god look at Kal’s setup in the above thread.
