Got mine to work. My problem was my wallwort was too low of a voltage. I thought that since the pilot was working the valve should turn on the main burner, but the pilot will actually light without electricity.
Did first beer with my new direct fire rims and man it destroyed my herms system. Stepped up from 147 to mashout very fast. This was with a 5 gal batch. We'll see how the rims works with a ten gal batch in a couple of weeks.
P.S. did have some gelatinized mash stuck on bottom of my mlt, but it wasn't scorched just a ring of sticky goo. Don't think it will impart any off-flavors
