2nd time using this system. Gone through some tweaks. I didn’t record all of the time brewing. figured it would be boring to watch. I’m really happy for how the system performs. The insulation holds the temp well and only takes about 130-150 watts of power to maintain it at 152 degrees F.
With 2 gallons it went from 63 degrees F to 152 F in about 14 minutes.
Total boil volume with DME is 3.5 gallons, temp dropped to 160 with the additions. Got to a boil pretty quick in about 16 minutes from there.
I invite you to ask questions and I will answer best I can. Truth be told I am still learning myself.
