@Alanem, I'm with Todd. Keep it simple. Use 2 vials, don't secondary and pitch onto yeast cake. There's no reason that this won't make excellent beer. If you're relatively new to this don't overcomplicate it

Hi Ben, im not sure about instructions. I remember finding a thread dedicated to buffalo mods on jbk. However, the boil dry sensor is mounted on the underside of the element, held in place by 2 nuts.

Until recently, I never even measured my starting water, just knew approximately what was going into my kettle. I recent...

Nicko, be wary of single thermometer readings. In my experience the mash can have pockets of varying temperatures. Stir the sh1t out if it a d add heat very cautiously. If you used a half decent strike water temp calculator you can't be far off the mark
