  • 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
    switching betw...

    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 ...

  • Posted in thread: Do I really need an oxygen aeration system? on 09-23-2015 at 02:39 PM
    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
    switched fro...

    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
    the eleme...

    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
    fixed the diagram...

  • Posted in thread: internal component spacing on 09-01-2015 at 04:38 PM
    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
    schematic an...

    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...
