Re: Topping up post boil

Yup. Why spend on fuel you don't need?

I've got some in bottles that I can't shift, and over time it can build up reasonably bad in the boiler, depending on water hardness.
Can you do a picture please?

No trying to be difficult, but I am not sure I have seen this. Been brewing and using the same bottles for years.

Re: Mixing paddle

I made one of these years ago, probably before Bac. Much easier, but I have only used it on a

My fabricator has made a few now.

Re: Braumeister or Brewtools??

Hope it works out well for you.

I have proved brewday doesn't have to be a mission (or in fact a day 😁). What style of beer do you make?

Re: Cleaning elements

Just different machines. Grain father type one pot systems (klarstein, BM's etc) circulate the wort through the grain bed and over the heating elements during mash. Good for temp control, but it does make a proper mess on the element.

Re: Mixing paddle

I was always taught that galvanised (anything) was a no no for brewing. That said, the contact time is very small.

I wouldn't. But it's each to their own.

I might be tempted to go straight to stainless.

I suppose if you fit it to a drill they are the variable speed of the drill.

Re: Digi-boil Cleaning

I cannot find a better way than TFR, a long handled stiff brush (bog brushes work well) and a stainless scrubby you any real tough bits.

Another tip, wash it soon as, don't let it get dry. If it does chuck some water in to cover the element and bring it back to the boil lid on.

Re: Cleaning elements

I tend to just put some water straight from the hot tap (40-45C) and then add a PBW type cleaner and turn the element on for a few minutes. It only needs wiping off after, plus I then have hot cleaning solution for the rest of my kit. I never got any pleasure out PBW. Soaking or CIP. What dose PBW ...
