I'm building a recirculating infusion mash system to brew beer using all grain. The main component of this system is a heat tube, to maintain mashing temperatures while the pump circulates the wort through the grains. I bought some 1 1/4" copper tubing and some copper fittings to allow me to use a hot water heater element and flow the wort past it. I added a thermowell to monitor the temp as it passes back out to the mash tun.
