I was gonna comment on the colour too but I figured I haven't been doing this long enough to get into the colour debate. Should we discuss "Improving Efficiency Through Boiling" as well?That cooler will be good. You'd have fewer problems if you mashed in a blue one, but nothing serious.
My first thought on looking at the picture. That red will suck the efficiency right outta your mash.
Why will it suck the efficiency out of it?
What my real question should be since i really only paid 10 bucks for it and all my other parts and such can be transfered to a different cooler later on and i want to get right into all grain b/c i have had the itch for like a year now will this cooler for the time being lol?
Yeah, we're just kidding. The cooler you got will work just fine.
So i dont think i need a 70 quart cooler quite yet.
So my question is this. I either want to do 5 gallon high gravity likr 8-12% brews so all i would need is atleast a 40 quart cooler right?
And would i be alright with a 20 dollar target cooler or do i "need" to have a cooler like a coleman extreme?
So I bought the motor (177.7 rpm version) and it works great. No problems with a monster mill 2-roller. I did buy the larger lovejoy couplings rated for 40 in-lb of torque at McMaster:
6408K123 Flexible Spider Shaft Coupling Hub 3/8" Bore, 1-23/64" OD, without Keyway $3.62
6408K712 Flexible Spider Shaft Coupling Hub 1/2" Bore, 1-23/64" OD, with Keyway $3.62
6408K73 Buna-N Spider for 1-23/64" Outside Diameter Flexible Spider Shaft Coupling Hub $2.15
I wired it up with a combination single pole / 3 way switch so I can reverse it if necessary, but I haven't had a jam yet.
