    Using an over the side immersion heater to sanitise fermenters

    I have been toying with the idea to use an immersion element to boil-sanitise my fermenters instead of using home brand bleach, starsan, ect. Has anyone ever done something like this before? If you have, how effective was it? If you haven't, what are your thoughts? Cheers.

    Hi all, Just a quick question about using rice as an adjunct. It is the starch (white gloopy stuff when its cooked) that we are converting isn't it?
