Hi,

Would anyone know what the equation is to calculate the Thermal Mass of a mash tun ??? Turns out that the equation for calculating the temperature required for a given volume of hot liqour needs the Thermal Mass of the mash tun as an input.

Any help will be gratefully appreciated :blink:

Cheers,
David

I think you mean 'specific heat capacity' as thermal mass has no units and cannot be calulated, its more like a substance that can hold heat energy. Specific heat capacity is a measure of the amount of energy required to raise the temperature of a material by n degress. You may also be talking about the thermal capacity, to calculate specific heat capacity... actually just look at this website.

The thermal capacity is the specific heat capacity of a metal * its density.

Hope this helps. Although it sounds like you have figured it out already.
