  • Posted in thread: Hard wire STC-1000 problem on 04-25-2015 at 08:48 PM
    I never bypass the stock thermostat when installing an stc-1000. I install them inline with the
    main power cord coming from the wall and into the fridge. This way I only cut into the three
    wire power ...

    If it worked before then your wiring is correct. And there is a reason these things are cheap.
    Check your connections. If a stray strand of copper is creating a short you will get all sorts
    of problem...

    I still use these guys. I have made it a habit to call a couple days after the order is placed
    to ask if there are issues. My closest LHBS is a couple hours away so my choices are limited.

    A better view of my project. Finally got it out of the shop, and I installed the correct
    faucet. I still need a better draft handle. 263259

    My current build, still in the shop in this photo. It is a used 4.4 which I painted black. The
    wood top was built by me. It is oak and walnut. Single draft, 2.5 inch tower. It's plumbed with
    a nitro r...

    Like many on this forum, I too had nearly given up on BMW. I was driving the 3 hours to a
    "L"HBS rather than dealing with BMW's terrible shipping. I gave them one last attempt on
    Wednesday. My order w...

  • Posted in thread: bottling noob mead question on 11-06-2013 at 03:56 PM
    Not a dumb question at all. I prefer to batch prime rather than doing each bottle individually.
    For my sparkling mead I use 1 oz of priming sugar per gallon. It is quite effervescent but not
    over carb...

    Thank you all for putting my mind at ease. Yes, there is a bit of krausen so I suppose the
    oxygen did kick things up again. Thanks again!

    I had a strong ale in the primary for a month. I racked to a secondary using the most careful
    sanitation processes I can muster. After three days in the secondary I have signs of
    fermentation again. I...

  • Posted in thread: Apple Cyser + sparkling apple cyser on 11-02-2013 at 12:15 PM
    Arch tech, your friend is mistaken. I have cyser that has been in bottle for over a year. The
    flavor has changed a lot in that time, but it was all for the better. The flavors have mellowed
    and a far ...
