Re: Immersion heater element seal

Cheers Fil. That's a clever little trick.

Luckily I managed to secure it with a s*it load of brute force. The pot is aluminium so it was able to bend into shape.

Re: Elvis Juice!

Thinking about this too... Worried that boiling could drive off the precious aromas.

I'm doing no chill BIAB with this brew so I could leave it in there at 70c to cool down in the brewery. That's plenty of time to release the magic. F*ck it. That's what i'll do. :-)

Re: Elvis Juice!

I'm currently brewing something similar. 14.5L batch. Just zested 3 grapefruits and 2 oranges. Zest weighs exactly 55g. Will add at 'flame out' then chill to 70c for hop steeping additions for 30 mins. I'm going to add the same amount of zest again in secondary. So - a total of 6 grapefruit and 4 or...

Immersion heater element seal

Hi folks, I'm currently building an all in one system and have realised that the 3kw immersion heating element (from screwfix) won't fit snug. Here's the element: https://www.screwfix.com/p/tesla-titanium-immersion-heater-element-11/56481 I'm thinking about buying this silicone sheet and cutting out...

Re: The MaltMother™

Fantastic build. I'm planning on something similar. I love your recirculation set up. What fittings did you use to spray the wort out like that? cheers - i used https://www.bes.co.uk/1-2in-flanged-plug-with-undercut and drilled six holes in the undercut section - costs just over £1 Genius!! Thanks

Re: Cheap false bottom perhaps?

Cheers vacant. Could be a tidy option!

Yep - worried that the holes might be a bit big. Have asked the seller to measure them. No doubt s/he thinks I'm a complete weirdo...

Cheap false bottom perhaps?

Doing a new build and this looks like a cheap option.

Looks to be made of aluminium.

Any thoughts?

Re: STC 3000 - Suitable for RIMS?

Quick (and prob stupid) question on these PIDS... I'm planning on making a Grainfather style brewery for the kitchen. After I mash/RIMS, can I simply set the PID to 100c for the boil or will this be too much for the PID or SSR? Worth asking in case I kill myself/blow something up!! Cheers as always ...

in theory nothing stopping you wiring in a trusted relay to do the job though.. Cheers boys. I reckon I'll go for the STC 1000 added relay option as I have experience in STCs. Thanks jarporter!

Re: STC 3000 - Suitable for RIMS?

Cheers boys.

I reckon I'll go for the STC 1000 added relay option as I have experience in STCs. PIDS are a bit scary!!

Please could someone send me a link to a suitable relay?

Also, I've read that the relay needs a separate 12v power supply?? Please tell me it doesn't!!!

Cheers folks!
