Going to use the induction hobs temp setting and do a calibration run. Compare setting to actual temp, also have invested in a digital temp meter that can be calibrated.
The only hole i was thinking of drilling was a bottom ball valve.

You and me both. My pots 25 litre and agree the biabicus is quite a bit daunting. I am hoping once I put my pot dimentions in and the other pot info it might be a little clearer but it is hard work on a small laptop lol. There are some good videos on youtube about biab brewing. Someone on here said ...

Point taken, I do tend to over complicate things and over think. At the end of the day I want to make a full mash beer that tastes as it should and not like my last! I will study the excel sheet more and more than likely when I do get a pot and put the details in it may start making sense. The whole...
