Dang... makes me glad I got mine from eBrewSupply - they barely make any noise... Kinda surprised - all the Auber stuff I got seemed very good quality. It's nice that they are standing behind their products.

Ya its weird that this seems to happen so often with these contactors. they must be pretty sensitive or something.

Suyi's definitely great to work with. Highly recommended. I bought a lot of parts from him myself. If only everyone looked after their customers so well!

Well my new contactors got here!!! Though he did only send me 30A ones... I installed them anyways because i don't need that high of ones anyways. They work like a charm and are super quiet!!

Heating my water and doing an auto-tune as i type!

Well my first brew day went great! I brewed a black butte porter clone that ive been wanting to do forever.

Brew day went as planned. I did have a little bit of a problem when i was recirculating at first. I had the pump pretty much wide open and i ended up creating a vacuum. I couldnt even lift the bag out. So i just turned down the pump and it worked perfectly. I think because of this i ended up with almost a little scorching on my elements. It was basically just goo'd up and stuck on it. It didnt smell burnt or anything.

The one thing that i dont quite like about my build is the heatsticks. i realized that i cant really put the lid on tight. I believe that i would be able to heat faster and keep a little more heat in if my lid wasnt propped open the whole time.

Other than that i am super excited about it. It was my first brew with an electric brewery, first brew with a water filter, first brew with an oxygen system, and one of my first with a temp controlled fermentation. So basically im saying that i have high hopes for this beer. Lets hope i dont get dissapointed.

Edit: I believe i got 92% mash efficiency as well which seems really good..

Well I'm ready to transform my control panel back into the 220 30amp 5500 Watt element system. Just moved into a new house and got a 30 amp outlet installed!
