yea im not ganna disable it on my new 1500 watt hotplate, i'd do it to the old one, but it seems like with 2 hotplates (one on bottom and one on the side) will work good.
Since it can boil water im sure it can boil mash right? since water boils at 212f and when running your mash it boils at like 172f right?
i know my column is working
i collected some water from it
is the column suppose to be as hot as the boiling water because my thermometer read around 200f in the column...
remember im just testing it with water for now.
