Re: which one

Bought one of those a few weeks ago. Only used it the once so far but it's dead easy and I love the recirc facility

Re: ACE one-pot brewing system

my current setup goes on the stove top so I have use of the cooker hood. My previous setup was was like that although I struggled to get a good rolling boil so didn't produce too much steam. Thinking ahead I'm toying with the idea of a false bottom and fitting some kind of home made hop back on the...

Re: ACE one-pot brewing system

Don't know if the pump is up to creating a whirlpool but it's supposed to be the same pump as used in the grainfather. Apart from that you'd need a false bottom as there's no filter on the inlet to the pump. The machine has a 5 step programmable timer, temp, element power and time. No auto switch on...

Re: ACE one-pot brewing system

Happy camper :D

Re: ACE one-pot brewing system

Anyone know of an easy way to remove the brown (presumably sugars from the malt) scorch marks from the bottom of the pot? Just around where the concealed element is. Got some of it off but don't want to scrub too hard and scratch the shiny [-X

Re: ACE one-pot brewing system

Oh and the cheap foil lined mat is doing the job nicely. How long it lasts is another thing

Re: ACE one-pot brewing system

Got a brew on as I type Boiling away nicely (so that's what a good rolling boil looks like). Up to the boil on 2500w then turned it down to 1900 to maintain the boil. One question about electric boiler things in general. Does it harm the contacts or the element to have it cycling on and off every co...

Re: ACE one-pot brewing system

The model is mp 10rn https://m.aliexpress.com/item/760066872.html?tracelog=storedetail2mobilesitedetail& But the grainfather works with a counter flow chiller that pumps boiling wort through it so I would imagine it has to handle 100 degree + Good spot, reasonable price if it ever needs replacing. ...

Re: ACE one-pot brewing system

The ace has the same pump as the grainfather. 310 is a great price for what you are getting. Another 90 bucks on a good chiller and this is a great system. No need for a sparge heater either are there is plenty of capacity for full volume mash, just drop the efficiency and use a bit more grain in t...

Re: ACE one-pot brewing system

Tom, the foil is a bit thin but is perfectly fine. I use luggage straps to hold it on so I can easily remove it to clean the pot etc. I was a bit concerned that it might stick but mine hasn't at all. Excellent news With a bit of luck I'll finally get to use it in anger this weekend. I'm rather look...
