So I have successfully built a RIMS system with 100% the help from this forum…specifically this subject. Thanks everyone for the years’ worth of feedback this has provided. My circuits are all run safely and well, and my hydraulics are sound.
Everything works like a charm with one MAJOR problem: I can’t figure out the PID SYL 4342 controller. I thought it would be as simply as setting the process temperature to my desired mash temperature…but this does not seem to be the case. I splurged for the ramp/soak option and I think that all the available programs (or “steps” if you will) may be confusing things.
Is anyone familiar with setting a 4342 that is equiped with the ramp/soad option? If so, is there any basic procedure to setting things to my desired mash temperature? I got the ramp/soak option thinking this would be great for adjusting step mashs automatically but now I would just like to get her going. The manual - while it appears to have much information - seems to be a bit techinical for me (I'm a civil engineer and I think it's written for the smarter mechical, electical and chemical types). Any help would MOST CERTAINLY be appreciated!
Thanks again everyone for the wonderful gems of knowledge this forum provides!
