    I do have a few questions from wiring it.....All of my neutral (white) lines are 14 gauge. I'm
    using a preassembled 10 ft 4 prong dryer cord that has a 10ga neutral coming in. Is there any
    need to put...

    The problem here is assuming that matching a profile is somehow related to getting correct mash
    pH.Just because we know a water profile doesn't mean we know what those brewers actually do to
    their wat...

    RO water still contains minerals, just very low in quantity. For your sake, you can leave the
    values set at 0, but I believe it's 1/9th of the source water.At 1/9th, it's probably time to
    replace the ...

    All the STC-1000 does is switch which power receptacle has power. When the heat light is on,
    the heat relay is closed, allowing 120v at the heat receptacle. Since you have no heater
    plugged in, nothin...

    I like that you have casters on the milling station. That's exactly what I do, and I would
    highly recommend wheeling it away from your brewing space while milling, and vacuuming up
    before wheeling it ...

    Unplug everything and remove the 2 wires from the cooling relay. Is there continuity between
    the two sides of the cold relay? What is the resistance?

    Every gas station and grocery store around here has a machine outside. $1 for 5 gallons, or
    0.25 per gallon at a time.If you've resolved to use RO water from now on as many people have,
    RO systems are...

    Perhaps time to buy a pH meter? I have never heard of mash pH causing an impact on srm,
    interesting. Do you have more info on that?Maillard reactions are sped up at higher pH, hence
    higher pH worts be...

    If you're using 3 gallon fermenters, I wouldn't put more than 2.25-2.5 gallons in to begin
    with.If my goal were getting 3 gallons into a keg, I'd probably shoot for a 3.5 gallon recipe
    fermented in a ...
