A description of the heat system, what to buy, and how to add it to your SLP
- 1000W Bucket heater
- 5 gallon or larger plastic bucket (the big orange ones at Home Depot)
- A temperature controller, to turn the heater on and off
- A brewer's pump that can provide decent continuous flow and withstand high temperatures
- Steel tubing, and a bending tool to bend it into nice tall U-shapes
- Many feet of polyethelyne ("PE") tubing to transport the water between the pump, reservoir, and steel tubes.
- Misc adapters and fittings, and LOTS OF ZIP TIES!
