    https://www.amazon.com/Etekcity-Lasergrip-774-Non-contact-Thermometer/dp/B00837ZGRY/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=Non-contact+Digital+Laser+Infrared+Thermometer&qid=1553938702&s=gateway&sr=8-3 This is the one I use, works great, and very accurate. It makes no sense to use anything else. I use it exactly how @MiniYoda uses it. Double checked accuracy with a digital meat thermometer probe for grain mash temp, and it's spot on. When checked against an old dial type I see used here, the dial type thermometer was 20 degrees off.

    Upcoming Brewing Schedule

    Inserted data for 5 gallon recipe into a spreadsheet, then calculated for any size. Once I learn the variables/data-sets, I will become a Beersmith.

    Upcoming Brewing Schedule

    https://learn.kegerator.com/recipe-cascade-smash-pale-ale/ Using Nottingham yeast instead. This yeast seems to be the perfect ale yeast for my basement environment. Checked two All Grain LBK's yesterday and both were 57 degrees.

    Electric, Induction, Infra-Red ?

    @Cato Thanks, already thought of that. There's a basement window close by, and with a fan it should work. For now sticking with and learning All Grain. Using a 16 qt (4 Gallon) pot, which is the largest feasibly possible in kitchen. Researching possible setups for larger batches, which will require other equipment/processes. Only using Malt, Hops, Water & Yeast for beer. Goal is to brew what I call "Nectar of the Gods", and if/when that happens, larger batches will follow.

    Thanks. @Cato@Creeps McLane Walmart SS pot isn't magnetic, magnet would not stick to it. It was discovered while researching online that there is magnetic, and non-magnetic SS. Basement has a 240V 20A outlet, and also a sink. However, wouldn't pump that much water into septic system. Maybe ice water in sink, and pump & recirculate through that ?

    My basement has both 120 & 220. Previous owner of home was tool & die maker. Tons of 120 & 220 outlets in garage & basement. Not sure if my cheap SS Walmart pot is induction capable. And exactly what does induction capable mean anyway ?

    Clips for grain bag, good idea. What wattage is your induction burner ? How do you chill your wort ? Thanks
  12. Gas burner in the basement is not feasible. Is there an electric, Induction or Infra-Red burner that can be used ? Does anyone have one ? Use one ?

    DME to All grain conversion

    First time using 16qt pot with full volume boil and hop schedule. Used 2qt water for 8oz grain steep for 25 minutes. Used all the stuff I've learned online, and from you guys/gals, so much to know. Process is getting more involved, attention to details. First test batch using Nottingham yeast. Will ferment a little over 3 weeks at 59 degrees in basement. Getting ready for first all grain mid next week. Picture is citra hops awaiting their fate.

    DME to All grain conversion

    Calculating boil off rate, and grain absorption, is to end up with whole volume being brewed. What would be the benefit ? Instead of adding more water to volume before fermenting.
