    Chlorinated Water

    you don't need campden tablets for kit brewing, the theory is that in the mash phenols from the grain react with the chlorine to form chloropenols (TCP taste) so a bit of bisulphate to remove the chlorine helps the taste.

    Coil length for HERMs pot and which PID?

    I use 8mm and just shy of 2m I believe (6 loops diameter 10cm so 60x3=180ish) not had a problem, I use the same Pids as Vossy and Aleman.
