Well, after a break I'm back on the brew! I'm just thinking of changing my set up from basic stockpot with 7 litres boils to 20 litre batches. My issue is do I go with the All-in-one, self contained pot with an element inside (and temp control panel), or just buy a bigger basic pot which is heated on a gas stove. I am a BIAB-er. I have always done everything in the same pot (apart from fermenting), so trub from mashing gets boiled with everything else. My question is this: If I opt for a more sophisticated system with a temperature controlled heating element in the pot (I'm thinking specifically 'Klarstein Maischfest Mash Kettle Mash Tank 5 Pieces 1500/3000W 25l LCD Touch Stainless Steel') There is no false bottom on it will the trub burn on the element inside? I'm also wondering if my so far trusty tea bags that I use for my hops will also burn on the element too... So far, my heat source has been outside the pot. OK, the bottom of the pot got hot, but it wasn't the actual heat source though...or am I over thinking it, as I have a tendency to do... Anyway, Brewers, ideas and thoughts would be appreciated.
