I had read a thread a while back where someone mentioned using a bucket heater to heat water for pasteurization. I saw this one on several sites and the info on it is different on almost every site.
http://www.alliedprecision.com/bucketheater.html
It is made by Allied Precision and supposedly heats water up to 150 degrees (though this stat varies depending on where you look it up). Has anyone tried this and if so is it suitable for pasteurization? I unfortunately can’t control the water heater in my apt and boiling pots and pots of water is just too much of a pain so I am searching for an alternative.

Thanks Hippie. Interestingly enough, the heater referred to in the link you posted is I believe the same Allied Precision one I was talking about. On that page it says that it heats up to 180, so as you can see the information is a bit divergent and slightly incongruous. In my pasteurization, I believe I used significantly more than 5 gallons of water so I hope it does the job. I will buy one and let everyone here know how it goes.

Elf, which heater do you use? And will it heat more than 5 gallons as effectively?

P.S. sorry for the small font and that weird thing above my link, I couldn’t get rid of it.

the 'weird thing' is a question mark indicating a term
found in our Glossary here, click the link for more info about pasteurization, etc.
or if you meant your first post above,
i fixed that too.

Thanks for the link Hip,

I think that the question mark thing may have showed up because I copied and pasted text from Word. Lets see

This is just a test

To see if pressing the Enter key in Word

Causes strange characters to appear in my posts

Indeed it would seem so. I guess this can be an example for people that if you copy and past text from Word, you will end up with these types of characters you see above wherever you have pressed the Enter key. I think you can just delete them before you submit your reply but there was one time where I couldn't so you might have to view it as a preview first.
