menards, look for the most btu's (sometimes in watts) available in 110v unless you have 220 other than by your dryer. below is a web site's for building your own. also a little input from Jamil Z to another brewer on the subject things just to keep in mind.

"Steve,
There will be some additional melanoidin formation using the heater elements. It works for many people. I know you need to make sure you find the elements with the lowest heat density per inch, yet with enough total wattage to do the heating necessary. You will most likely find that you'll need to tweak your recipes a bit to compensate for the additional melanoidins. Recipes that worked fine before might be a bit off now. Of course, that applies to any major change in brewing equipment.

The only other con that I know of is the possibility of electrocution. Anytime you mix liquids and electricity, you're running the risk. The more ways you integrate electricity, the more opportunities there are for a deadly outcome. There are people who have done it safely for years, but you'll want to keep that in mind.

Sorry, that I don't have. Sold my last one a few years ago with our old set up.

I saw Amazon had a nice Bayou Classic for $80. Free shipping? I have Amazon Prime so it shows up as free shipping.

Homebrew extras

Post  randi philleo on Mon Jul 16, 2012 10:26 am

I have some extra's to get rid of. I'll try to post individual listings for things, but I figure if I post here, maybe I'll be more motivated to go through my things.

I for sure have a pump to sell and a keg cleaner. There's probably more than that though. If you have any questions or are looking for other pieces please feel free to post.
