    Again, I don't think that there are many/any definitive scientifically based books, at least
    not that I could find. I find that the traditional advice to looks, smell and listen just
    isnt't enough. It...

    Personally, right now I don't think it's the roasting equipment that's holding me back. I think
    it's mostly ape running the roaster. Of course, I'd consider a nicer roaster, but i can't see
    going for ...

    So yes, the turbo oven absolutely makes it better. WAY better. I would have done it sooner, but
    this life of mine only lets me move forward so fast on the hobbies. Anyway, I'm loving this new
    setup. I...

    Yeast do not acclimate to higher osmotic pressure. Perhaps they might evolve to handle higher
    osmotic pressures but the environment still stresses them. The 1.030's is an ideal range for
    yeast starter...

  • Posted in thread: Force carb question on 07-25-2015 at 04:10 AM
    Yes...but, even at 30 psi it takes a while to get a keg to fully carb, so if you pressurize it
    to 30psi and then move the line over to another keg, in a few minutes that will have absorbed
    and you wil...

    You didn't post the dimensions of the megapot and I'm too busy to google-fu it for reference.
    If they have a wide diameter than you might have issues with low gravity 5 gallon batches as
    far as grain ...

  • Posted in thread: 12V DC panel mount connector on 06-22-2015 at 05:13 AM
    Thanks guys, that is what I figured but wanted to double check that there wasn't something
    better. I have some of those floating around from my stir plate build so easy enough.

  • Posted in thread: 12V DC panel mount connector on 06-20-2015 at 10:52 PM
    Any recommendations on panel mount connectors so I can plug in the cord from 12V DC motorized
    ball valves?

  • Posted in thread: 120v 20amp switch on 06-19-2015 at 04:21 AM
    Those are the toggles I found that I want to avoid. I have these: my brewery panel and want to
    keep the appearance consistent. I have an aubur order I need to make so I think I will get on
    of their D...

  • Posted in thread: 120v 20amp switch on 06-19-2015 at 01:28 AM
    The only 20 amp switches I saw are the wall type switches and a toggle switch and I really
    don't want either. So sounds like I'll do the spst and use the type of switch I want on the
    controller. This ...

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
