What about lids for your HLT and boilers?
What did you do there , or no lids?

My HLT is a 30 litre URN, that has a lid that I keep on it. Helps maintain the temp and gets it up to temp quicker.

Sounds like your HLT will be like my boiler.
For that I use a large enamel tray (like a big drinks tray) for my coverted keg boiler.
But I only need a lid until it comes to the boil, then no lid required (otherwise big boilover).

Beers,
Doc

Got a large 50L pot and the best I could come up with is a piece of corigated iron and a brick. :rolleyes: Bloody rough but it does the job for the right price.

When I had my boiler modified I found a suitable pot lid from a 20lt stock pot and had the hole cut to suit

yep i use a lid on the h.l.t.it must help conserve some gas i would think and save time on heating up.
with the boil i only cover the kettle untill it starts to boil then you have to let everything get out not fall back in.

i use the same as linz,stock pot lids.
i have a glass one for the kettle.
