    Yeah, I figured out they don't leave much room in the connector when you put the back she'll
    on. I probably will end up taking it apart, crimping it, and trying again.Good idea, just a
    more reliable c...

    A lot of good suggestions. suggestions. Thanks for the help. I know people say just throw it

    What's the general practice for stranded wire hookups? It seems like a lot of European regs
    call for crimps on stranded wire that goes into terminals, but not in the U.S. Does anyone else
    use crimps o...

    With plastic there is no guarantees you will kill all the bad things using a sanitizer. Alcohol
    will have the same problems as a sanitizer, it won't get into all the nooks and crannies. Me,
    I'd look i...

    Yeast don't really go to sleep, they just slow way down on their metabolism. So, yes, they
    could still be actively chewing away at sugars. You may also have had some pressure build up
    from CO2 saturat...

    You just need the bottom of the MLT above the highest point of your collection vessel and
    gravity will take care of the rest. Or, put your MLT on the ground so you can sparge into it
    from an elevated ...

  • Posted in thread: 6 AWG terminal for SSRs? on 07-13-2016 at 04:23 PM
    Then you can use 10AWG wire to you SSR's. You will need 30A fuses in all hot lines when going
    to 10AWG wire from the main feed. Doesn't matter the SSR's are rated for 80A, as you won't draw
    more than ...

  • Posted in thread: 6 AWG terminal for SSRs? on 07-12-2016 at 11:40 PM
    Out of curiosity, how much wattage are your element(s) drawing from the 80a SSR?Right now, I am
    going to be going with a 4500 and 5500 given my average voltage I see at my house. Should put
    me in the ...

  • Posted in thread: 6 AWG terminal for SSRs? on 07-12-2016 at 03:42 PM
    What terminal ends are people using to connect their 80 amp SSRs on their 50 amp panels? I'm
    not seeing a lot out there for 6 AWG that are not automotive and I don't care to screw down
    bare wire into ...

    Doing a lacto starter now and don't want to wait for it to settle, don't want to expedite

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
