I hope so, I put quite a bit of time into this. It's all SS with a water jacket that has temp probes both into the jacket and mash. I figured with the water jacket I can direct fire and have no concerns about scorching my mash. When I tried it with the 1/8" False Bottom I heated the jacket temp up to my strike temp and it held perfectly with no drop over an hour. I am hoping to be able to step mash once I get it all working.
