What size mash tun do you guys use? I'd like to know height and diameter to help me design a mash paddle (with built in thermometer ) for a Uni assignment.
I think most would be modified full size kegs:What size mash tun do you guys use? I'd like to know height and diameter to help me design a mash paddle (with built in thermometer ) for a Uni assignment.
Cheers,I have a 70lt esky its very long, narrow and not that deep. Your idea is alright but you would need to consider a few things.
1. it will have to be very accurate or be able to be calibrated. So it would have to be of good quality, although if its just for uni then you could cut corners and do it on the cheap but for a selling point you would have to consider this.
2. Main problem I see is inaccuracy from the wood (amusing its wood) in the mash paddle as it wont absorb the heat much so the prob will have to stick out of it or something. Not sure what you want to use or how you are going about it.
3. Is getting it stuck or hit on things again depending what you use and how you mount it.
What degree are you doing? Industrial Design?Capital Idea, how do i go about doing that?
Yeah, i'm doing industrial design. I'll swap you some of my degree for a bit of your Arc degree - It would look good along side my my guitar building qualification.What degree are you doing? Industrial Design?
If I give you a chunk of help can you split the degree with me?
It'd look good alongside my Architecture one and my Psychology Grad Dip ;-)
Have a look on the top of a new topic you start... there's an option right there under the text boxes for the title/subtitle....
When's the graduation ceremony? I'll make sure I'm free ...

Heres the brief in short: Design a hand held, manual, eco firendly kitchen utensil for food preperation. And this is the problem as i see it: Theres not much in the kitchen that hasnt been thought of, or isnt already being done well. It would be environmentally wreckless (and somewhat pointless) to redesign a potato peeler/garlic crusher when there are several good examples on the market already. Designing a better mash paddle is not much better, except that its an area that hasnt been fully explored, it fits the brief and I can do it relatively quickly.
What I really wanted to do for this assignment was turn used coffee grounds into disposable coffee cups - but some people in canada have already proposed that. Failing that I wanted to make a waterless immersion chiller that is powered by the heat of the boil (dont laugh, have a look at absorbtion fridges) but it isnt really hand held and I doubt I could build one in five weeks.
Yeah thats what I was thinking as well (see post #11)... So i guess i'll keep the 51% of buisness rightsEasy solution:
Think extruded wood. Blend ester resins and the waste grain from brewing mash tuns, press into mold, viola! eco-spatula/spoon/mash paddles...
I'll have 51% of the business rights thanks ;-)
Yeah for sure. Currently I'm thinking that there will have to be a large and small model to accomodate the different size mash tuns. One at 45cm and one at 90cm.And a shedload of big double ewe 19L stockpots.
