Jumping on the question for Steve
I would cut it/ mount so you can easily remove it, just to make cleaning easy.
Roger that. My idea of only cutting holes to match the holes in the kettle was to maximise surface area being covered, but I guess a 5cm diameter hole won't do much harm.
By the way, if insulation assists with both the heating times and total heating power, as well as the preservation of heat (I single vessle BIAB) during mash, why would I want to remove it? Is it really going to keep it boiling for that much longer and create too much lag before whirlpooling?
Oh and should I possibly look at insulating the under side of the keg too?
