I tend to throw in some "comic relief" from time to time and I try to confine those shenanigans
to the non-tech threads. But no doubt, I've flung some crap into a tech thread a time or two.

It may not be doomed. There may be enough yeast still in your beer to clean things up. What
temp is it now? Maybe bump up a few degrees to get the yeast active again. Take gravity
readings until you h...

It didn't say. That's what concerns me.I found this PDF for Primo water. It shows 12ppm
chloride, 7.6ppm sulfate, with 33ppm total dissolved solids. It states pH as 5.2 - 7.41, which

Why would Haier say 15 or greater A if 10 are actually going to be sufficient?It may be the
mfr. stating the minimum circuit ampacity, to accommodate the inrush current spike at
compressor startup. Th...

In the US, we tend to deplore soccer for being a boring game where nobody ever scores. I think
the international community probably invented soccer because too many fans couldn't count high
enough to ...

Must be a huge (or terribly inefficient) freezer. Most consumer models draw only a few amps
when the compressor is running.However, there is a surge of "inrush" current when the
compressor starts up. ...
