    What are your intentions?
    Another option is to send an email to Sandy at Guten you will definitely get an answer.

    Recirculating after lifting the malt pipe shouldn't change anything at all. If you were getting proper recirculation during the mash, then the filtering through the bed will already be done. All that you'll be doing is extending the recirculation in an unnecessary and complicated fashion.

    Regarding the rice hulls - I personally don't use them. I condition the malt before milling it with 2% of the grain weight in water, and that helps form a greatly bulked up grain bed that not only gets great flow through (pump open on full blast last two batches), but also nets me 80-82% efficiency

    Goat chop when you say proper recirculating you mean it’s all going through the grain bed and little to none through the overflow?

    Right so looking at beersmith i did 10kg grain, mashed with 28L of water and sparged with 10L. Was aiming for 1.078 but hit 1.068 instead with 30L before the boil. 90 minute boil down to 21L and 1.081 (aiming for 1.102... so a big miss here ha).

    Fermented out to around 9.5%ABV so as i said, not as big as i would have hoped. I used a couple handful of rice hulls but cant really comment if they helped or not. I did read about soaking your rice hulls before adding, so i might try that next high-adjunct mash (i'm looking at you, flaked oats...).

    Or just go to the Austlii web site select Victoria & type MCH
    Just remember that it is really two groups of people versions of events and some rulings on some housekeeping matters. I.e what should be in and what should be out. These things always look bad!
    Not sure when the actual case is listed

    Seriously, can we piss off this crap to a dedicated thread somewhere else?
    Just get over it, it's old
    Also, it looks like the temp sensor is a 100k NTC

    To set up craftbeerpi. I hoped they might be Onewire probes but they aren't. Ive found out they are NTC. So look's like I cant use the existing probes.

    That's cool, but after asking on a few facebook groups for Gutens/Klarsteins/etc no one had tried this but most said it wouldn't do anything
    That's why I want to do it, to prove whether it does anything or not, because no one else has tried
    At worst I've wasted $5 on a camlock fitting and 30 minutes making a sparge ring and associated bits from stuff I have laying around
    I'll be brewing probably my house saison, I go through kegs of it like crazy because visitors love it so all is good

    And yes the RIS and BW will be 20L, haven't dialled in my boiloff rate yet

    Price lists and email addresses.. I am sure the lawyers will love arguing over it and taking money from both sides but I highly doubt it will be the end of KL

    Agree with you FreeBSD, as nice as his post is, there is no right of reply. Moderators still very silent. btw ~$7 million damages

    If you don't have a go you will never know. My boil off is 5 litres / hour.

    I hardly think thats fair, in this thread alone which WEAL started and has contributed a wealth of information. If it wasn't for those following his lead in purchasing the Guten from China and contributing to a successful thread, it may not have come to the notice of KK and making the Guten easier to purchase for Australian home brewers.

    The hopping has changed a bit since then, still predominantly Perle and EKG but the cube hop is usually something like Bramling Cross now, which I find works great in a Saison
    I've been using Coopers Pale Malt as the base malt lately and I find that I'm liking it more than I did with JW or BB Pale malts
    Hibiscus is optional, I find either in cube or at flameout works well
    For visitors I ferment it with Wyeast French Saison, if it's just for myself I use a blend made from Wyeast French Saison and a few different bottle dregs (Wildflower and La Sirene mostly)

    Eventually, yes. I go by the Grainfather videos that I've seen, where they are happy to let it flow through the overflow initially, and will eventually all flow through the grain bed.
    I'm happy to go by the GF guide, as their user guide is quite comprehensive, unlike the little to none that came with the guten when I got it (pre-KK stocking it)
