Cleaning the RIMS

Now that it is togetther and working, what should I use to clean out the flux and other assorted stuff that is in the system. I was thinking of making a batch of PBW and circulating that for a while and then rinsing with star san. Will that be sufficient to remove all the gunk????

Got the idea from Jeff

Here is where I got the idea from http://www.beertools.com/html/articles/mill.shtml I've had one problem with it in that the wood at one end where the adjusting screws go through has cracked from the pressure exerted on it. So right now I am having a piece of metal fabricated to fit over the end to ...

As soon as I drag it into the light of day, I'll take some pics and put them on my website. I thought using a dimmer switch with the heating element would control the temp, but it doesnt.
