Wanted - Upgrading to 10 gallon batches and all grain
« on: November 22, 2010, 06:43:19 AM »
I'm looking to upgrade from my 5 gallon extract setup to 10 gallon all grain.  These are things I'm looking for if you have any and live in the Philadelphia, PA area send me a PM with a Pic of the item you are willing to sell we can haggle over price.

15-20 gallon Pot
Mash Tun - I like bigger beers (as denny says life starts 60... 1.060)
Grain Mill - Something that i can attach my drill to for quick milling
Burner w/stand - I'm thinking i need something in the 200k btu and my 55k burner won't cut the mustard

One BTU is the amount of energy needed to heat one pound of water one degree Fahrenheit

So, ten gallons for easy math is 10*8.3= 83 pounds. If you want to raise that one degree you need 83 BTU's, so one hundred degrees (to get to 150º give or take) is 8300 BTU's so 8300/200000*60=2.49 minutes..... yeah, that's fast enough..... :o

For the mash tun, if you want to batch sparge look for deals on a 70 qt coleman xtreme cooler.  I just checked Amazon and it doesn't look like there's a good deal on them right now but I got mine for $36 and free shipping when I bought it.

That's EXACTLY the one I am looking at....... Walmart has it cheap, as much as I hate the joint.

The math assumes that no heat is lost to the surrounding air, or anywhere else.  (so it may take you a little bit longer) :)
Beer...Now there's a temporary solution!

Ya can't go wrong with the 70 qt. Extreme, IMO, unless you get it in blue.   It seems to have been designed as a MLT more so than a cooler! Basically zero deadspace. Love mine.
