    The capacitor is also reading ~5V (analog multimeter.) The regulator is an LM317T. Fortunately,
    I do have a few Radio Shacks in my area, so I think what I will do is replace both the
    regulator and tha...

    The transformer, board and potentiometer create a simple voltage rectifier/regulator. If you
    had a multimeter, a check of the voltage output to the motor would shed some light on whether
    it's the moto...

    I've had this224495for a couple years, this weekend it quit spinning. Power light comes on,
    nobody's home. I am not that electronically inclined, so I'm not sure where to start diagnosing
    a fix: motor...

    ^78% was what he expected, but his FG was 1.004.OP, was this a PM or AG? What was your mash
    temp? I assume you're measuring with the same hydrometer?

    They are super resilient, recently Russia sent a colony to space and the power failed plunging
    them into freezing darkness, when they got back they had bred and multiplied and were buzzing
    around happ...

    OK, so as a previous poster predicted, with my hop loving nature, the beers I have had over
    here haven't really been that "exciting". Like when I was in England, they have been "ok". I
    tried the Helle...

  • Posted in thread: Pumpkin Acorn? on 09-01-2014 at 12:38 AM
    Not with pumpkin, but I've brewed a brown ale with acorns. They are a bit difficult to work
    with and require a great deal of preparation to extract all of the bitter tannins. I boiled
    them in salted w...

    What's the production date of the yeast? If you have a stir plate, you could conceivably double
    the viable yeast count using one of the vials in a 600ml starter (2oz DME would give you 1.035
    wort.) As...
