So I got a 10g boilermaker for xmas. I have done 1 batch so far and right away I realized firing up my propane burner to heat up the mash to maintain mash temp will not work. false bottom absorbs too much heat and my wort will scorch…
so now my options are to somehow try and recirculate with a 4 qt contrainer that I use for vorlaughing or to buy a march pump and recirculate that way.
Does the container method work or am I just asking for trouble?
If I go the march pump route how difficult is it to maintain temps like this? do you just leave it on during the entire mash with very low flame? I assume drilling a hole in the lid or something like that would be necessary.
Right now I think I have 3/8 barb on my kettle should I be moving to 1/2" when doing a march pump?
Can anyone give me any tips or guidance on maintaining mash temp in a kettle like this?
