Want to build a mash mixer.
Does anyone have a tip on what low rpm high torque motor would be good?

Maybe an ice cream maker motor?
Has anyone tried that?

Either the ice cream motor or a BBQ rotisserie motor. I think the ice cream one would be a little faster than the rotisserie motor. Both of them should have plenty of torque though with the rotisserie probably having more.

Thanks for the input.
Hadn't thought about the rotisserie motor. And, since I have one, will giveit a try and let you know how it works.
Also, refer to the article in the newest BrewYour Own covering the subject. I know commercial brewers use them.
Off for another experiment!
