    So, how is that TEC controller project going? I've been playing with TECs for a while for ferm
    temp control but they keep on freezing on me... Would love to try your controller. Do you have
    a page or ...

    Sorry I was not clearer, I meant using the single temp controller to turn the AC on/off based
    on room temp, and that by pushing the copper bulb of the current temp sensor outside where its

    My BH eff ranges from 78 to 85%. I have a Corona mill and crush as fine as I can get it, then
    add the grains very slow and stirring all the time. If I don't stir a lot, I get big lumps,

    If it's the efficiency field in the recipe editor, then it would be brewhouse eff. When you hit
    Brew it! after saving the recipe, you can input all your numbers (mash volume/gravity, boil
    v/g, etc) in...
