First Batch 13,2G/50liters E-biab Rig - Galaxy American IPA

Hi guys, first batch on new rig, E-biab setup with 4kw elements, automatic mash stirrer, everything wireless controlled via web, thanks to a Raspberry PI with StrangeBrew Elsinore Software (Credits to Doug for this!, Great piece of software!) Started Saturday morning with lot of doubts, will the wip...

Thanks guys, i was really scared from past experience about heating elements during mash, if stirrer was not good enough for the task, plan B was to add a pump. PistolPatch: the big pot is a bitch to clean! I hope one day to make some CIP system! Next week will do another batch, i'll let you know! A...

To insulate the pot i've used on the bottom a wood panel, covered with a cork layer, on the sides, heat reflective radiator panels, fixed with "automotive straps" http://i66.tinypic.com/6s7tdy.jpg Final pictures, and video (sorry in italian!) of wet test with 19g/73liters in mash and 15g/58liters in...

Here the elements, custom made in italy, Aisi 321 Stainless Steel body and 304 top cap, Ulwd (7w/cm2) so i don't have to worry a lot about scorching the wort again :peace:, fixed in place with washer and locknut, filled with high temp (200° c) food grade silicone, specifically for wine, beer, milk t...

Here is the cage, made with 0,8mm sheet, soft enough to be hand bended, hard enough (once fixed with screws) to hold the bag in place. manufacture is not perfect, in fact cage "swell" in the center, but nothing impacting functionality http://i63.tinypic.com/ng1tae.jpg Everything assembled for testin...

Sorry for the pics intensive discussion, instead of doing a step by step thread i've waited to check everything is ok and post it when sure it was working. Here a video test of the panel (sorry is in italian), it show in the first part manual mode (stirrer on and off, stirrer speed regulation, volta...

Working on it i found a problem, box wasn't deep enough to mount inside all the items, so i've add at the rear of the panel a electric box in which i've put power supply and 5v stepdown regulator. I've sanded and sprayed the panel, but paint is not good....worked on it after that and lots of paint c...

a bit of flex/dremel work made by my father, i'm not that good with flex/solder/dremel :cry: Holes for the power outlets, some cuts on the box, after that an aluminum panel will be mounted on the front, with all switches, led, etc. http://i65.tinypic.com/jrww2c.jpg Here the ssr section, similar to e...

Hi guys,
thanks for the inputs, read a lot and would give a try to mash stirrer!
Finalizing my 2.0 setup, i'll post everything when i'm done.

Cheers

Hi, after reading here and there bad stories about recirculating wort with a pump in a ebiab system, i would try to add a stirrer like yours, do you think, after all this time, is working right? My system is 100% complete, but i have a basic controller for elements and manually stir during temp ramp...

Thanks Thughes, I've readed carefully your posts about pump problems, and i'm a bit worried about it....however i've to find a solution, stirring during temp. ramps is a pain. I've seen these little pumps (solarproject) that output from 6litres/hour to 11 l/h, maybe i can fine tune one of this to do...
