  • Posted in thread: Bcs 462 pid on 04-30-2016 at 03:03 PM
    I see that it has 6 PWM/PID but 8 temp sensor inputs. Can the other two temp sensors be linked
    to outputs for basic on/off control or are they only capable of passive monitoring of temp?

    Way too many variables there to really say either way. One thing that does stand out is the
    water as you mention. That much distilled water is not going to have a lot of minerals in it
    necessary for y...

  • Posted in thread: 7g Chronical & FTSS - coil extensions...anyone got 'em? on 02-24-2016 at 12:40 AM
    Yeah, its a waste of time, at least the coils are tightly coiled so you can get a scotchbrite
    inbetween them, it still is a headache, I dunk it in a bucket full of oxyclean. Not ideal
    though because i...

    I have the original half barrel. When I do 10 gallon batches the coil only goes halfway into
    the wort. It has no problems keeping things under control temp wise in this condition. However,
    cleaning th...

    Leaving the lid off while it cools? Yes, that can invite unwanted critters to the party. I
    personally don't let it cool too much when I bottle. I get the siphon going and then slowly
    pour in the sugar...

    Not too huge an issue. However, if your intent is consistency from batch to batch on a
    particular recipe it is one of those things to do.

    Order it online if your local grocery store doesn't have any, its a pretty common spice so you
    shouldn't have much difficulty finding a vendor with low shipping cost and/or having other
    spices you are...

  • Posted in thread: Yeast types? on 01-27-2016 at 05:10 AM
    That is a question that is easy to write a book on. Perhaps pickup Yeast: The Practical Guide
    to Beer Fermentation. Selecting the right yeast for the style is critical to getting the style.
    That doesn...

    Alcohol brings flavor and mouthfeel to the party so most definately, not to mention it is no
    longer something you are going to be drinking liter after liter of during Oktoberfest.

  • Posted in thread: BCS 462 grounding on 10-26-2015 at 02:30 PM
    I've read many times to ground the BCS controller to AC ground. Is this to mean the AC ground
    and DC negative are common and can share the same rail, or is this grounding the BCS
    controllers chassis t...

I was just looking at your information and see that you are from Washington, the state. It made me laugh. I am from Idaho and feel that "Washington" is the state and the city should be designated as "DC". As an aside, I live in Northern Idaho (Sandpoint) and people always call it North Idaho. It is small, but it drives me crazy, just the same was "Washington State" does not set well with me. Anyway, I liked your small editorial. Mark
