What don't you like about the front to back style handles? I much prefer them that way because it makes things easier to move around for cleaning.excited for them to come out with a complete all in one system.
i don't like the handle orientation and don't understand why they went with it.
edit- nevermind, I went back to their site and they orient the handles that way to save space in a 3V system. I'm REALLY hoping they put the handles back to the sides for their full ebiab all in one system. spring 2019?
For me it's a constant comparison to the Unibrau. Their basket and pump recirc mash setup is great looking.
SS has a better element and controller. Better diptube. 240v. Their plate chiller looks to be the best out there. (ease of use AND being able to quickly disassemble for cleaning)
Just waiting on SS's basket design and price for whole system.
I'm right there with you on the cord runs. I also was pretty miffed when i realized it also required the 110v cable. It was not mentioned at all!I gotta say I'm NOT super thrilled about the crazy short cord runs to power the thing.
it's not a problem for me, but i didn't realize it needed the 110v.I'm right there with you on the cord runs. I also was pretty miffed when i realized it also required the 110v cable. It was not mentioned at all!
A $2k plus system should have EVERYTHING needed to work, right out of the box(s)!
To provide GFCI for a 240v (only) circuit, you need two hots and a ground. Under normal operating conditions, all of the power that "leaves" one hot will "return" via the other hot, and the GFCI stays happy.So, my brother is an electrician and is telling me there's no way to really gfci protect a 3 wire plug. I've read many threads on here, the ss brewtech fb user group, and other online sources and quite frankly I'm more confused than ever.
He insists it'll be fine.
Can one of you knowledgable electric guys please spoon feed me this info in laymans speak? (I apologize for having the stupids here)
what do i need to make it work?
the theory behind it.
I'm getting a little aggravated.
ALSO, why in the world would ss brewtech not opt for a four wire setup if this was indeed designed from the ground up???
so glad i just saw your post and read that review!!Brülosophy just posted a review on SS Brewtech kettle. It looks amazing. I want to move to electric single vessel BIAB and I really like the SS Brewtech setup. They say they will be releasing the 20 gal version in Jan/feb.
So I cleaned up the area in my basement where I'm gonna be brewing with the ekettle. It's gonna be on a stainless table. What would homebrewtalk recommend putting under the kettle to avoid heating up the table?
I cannot find thier plate chiller anywhere? I am using a sabco frame style plate chiller now for a 3bbl setup and have also read that its a pain to disassemble and clean. I have not used it enough to have to do this yet but do not look forward to it.What don't you like about the front to back style handles? I much prefer them that way because it makes things easier to move around for cleaning.
Also, I'm curious to see how easy it really is to break down and clean that plate chiller. Plate and frame chillers are nice because you can break them down, but in my experience it's hardly an easy task and you have to be careful with all the gaskets.
The cork or silicone is used to increase the efficiency of the heating solution or insulate the kettle from the stainless table that otherwise acts as a huge heatsink wicking heat out of the kettle.Here ya go..for reference though, I don't use anything under mine. Kinda the point of having a stainless table.
arrived at my house a coupe days ago, lol. didn't know it existed until someone on the ss fb page pointed it outHere ya go..for reference though, I don't use anything under mine. Kinda the point of having a stainless table.
I'm not sure what they'll include in the "BIAB Bundle", but it works for eBIAB as is. The only other things I needed was a bag, a winch (to lift the bag after mash), adding a 240v 30a line to my brew room. I already had a pump and necessary hoses, so not a lot to add.Thinking I might pull the trigger on the 1v rather than wait for the all in one device they promise with no public available data yet. The new device isn't really a "biab" device, but rather an all in one device from what I've read and heard.
That said I'm converting from extract bottling to all grain and a keg system... So I'm a little confused what"accessories" I would need with the 1v system (kettle and controller). Aka what hoses and connectors would I also need to purchase? Wish there was a 1v ebiab starter bundle vs the 3 vessel starter bundle... That is over kill for 10gal systems (really for anything 2bbt of less from what I've gathered).
