Equipment and Software / Re: mash tun size

Makes sense. I'll preheat it also.

Equipment and Software / mash tun size
« on: January 23, 2017, 04:56:55 PM »
I still don't have the electric brewery up and running yet. In the meantime, I'm going to do some stove top mini batches. I've written a couple 2 gallon recipes that I can easily boil, then will add an additional gallon when I pitch for a total of a three gallon batch. My question is, will there be any negative consequences by mashing such a small amount in a 55qt mash tun? I'm looking at striking about 2.25 gallons. And for the record, my cooler is black and red. 8)

Nice! I just recently discovered Elijah Craig bourbon. I had it at a blind tasting and loved it.

OMG!!!!! WHERE ARE YOU GETTING CRAIG'S!?!?!?! When I lived in Idaho I used to get it. It's my all time favorite reasonably priced bourbon. I've not been able to find it anywhere here in Ohio.

OP, what size batches are you brewing and what kind of time are you looking at to heat your strike water and get to a boil?

It was cherry jolly ranchers. And it was very good despite the talk around here.

Very well said,  Franx. These guys have helped me through a lot,  including the Jolly Rancher IPA incident of 2011. ;D

I won't mention names, but the person responsible is certainly free to chime in. There are a lot of good guys  on this board. A couple years go, when I moved into my bachelor pad, one of you sent me a very nice care package. Prior to that some years ago, I was laid off work and some one from here had a sack of two row sent to my house and another hooked me up with a ton of hops.
  Then, just last week another sent me a grain mill to use in my in the works brewery. I want to thank you all again. This place is like family.

Pimp My System / hard part is done

wiring and controls are done and it's made  successful test run. Now I just need to make it look pretty with some diamond plate and tie up a few wires.

Progress..... the second PID wired, and the SSR test wired. I will be swapping out the mechanical relays this weekend.  Also got a temp probe test wired to the 3 pun quick connect.
 I have the third PID for the mash tun and the volt / amp meter on the way. I'm hoping to have them for the weekend.

I got it at a local wholesale house. I like to support the small wholesale stores when I can as opposed to the big box stores. But you can get the same one at Home Depot for the same price.  It's a 20x20 outdoor junction box.

Wife and kids are gone away today and tomorrow. While at the state store for a bottle of Jagar I decided to grab a cigar. LOVE IT!! So,  I'm off to the Havana House to pick up a good one to enjoy this beautiful evening. Anyone else?

Kim Mitchel - Go For a Soda

Kim Mitchel - Lager & Ale

These are three of my favorite, not to mention anything by The Real McKenzies.

Thanks, Turtle. I'll look into that. I would not mind to spend a few more for a proven product. And really, I don't need a flow meter to make good beer. I just think it's kinda cool.  8)

Good points made.  I do know you get what you pay for.  I sell HVAC equipment and supplies, myself. It's one of those cases where I'll waste the $65. If it works,  great if not no huget loss.
