Posted in thread: Proximity of SSRs on 11-07-2015 at 04:24 AM
So like a true meat-head, I chose not to accept the majority opinion and sandwiched the top of
the enclosure in between the SSR and heatsink. I posted some pictures here if you are
interested.I had in...

As promised and just to toot my own horn a bit, here are some pictures of the completed build
in action during my first brew with it yesterday. No pictures of the internal wiring because A)
it looks l...

I think what you are trying to build is what BobbyM recommended to me in this thread here,
using multiple SSRs in series. I didn't end up taking his advice, and stuck with my intent for
Posted in thread: Question about notty on 10-23-2015 at 10:14 AM
Best (only) way to know what's going on is to check the SG. Looks like less than a gallon?
Notty would chew that up in a few days with the right temps. There's a butt-load of yeast cake,
so there was ...

Your brew will most likely benefit from oxygen and I would bet you would taste a difference,
probably less esters and cleaner in general.:DI'd like to offer a counterpoint to this. When I

Ok, but when SSR's fail, they fail in the closed position allowing the current to flow. Having
a US$10 contactor in place would give you the ability to completely shut off the electricity to

Do you really have two pumps? If so, fusing one of them with a 1A fast blow probably isn't
going to work.Brew on :mug:You don't think so? :D Thanks for the catch. Just one pump, I've

Thanks for all the suggestions folks, it really helped steer my build in the direction of what
I want, or at least what I think I want having never brewed electric before! Here's my final

Don't mess around. Mount the SSR directly to a legitimate heatsink. I don't think the enclosure
had the mass to pull enough heat, even if sandwiching the enclosure. -BDAre you saying that
neither SSR ...
Posted in thread: Proximity of SSRs on 08-31-2015 at 05:51 AM
Will you be running both at once? Might make a difference. Personally I'd mount the one
directly to the heatsink since the enclosure is already a heatsink for the other ssr. Looks
like the enclosure i...
