True, when adding liquid, the level will rise up in the tube. That's why mine probably works
ok... there is very little volume of air above the liquid level in the fitting, and it's a
large diameter c...

You are probably going to want like a 60l kettle for BIAB to have plenty of room for grainThe
more watts for the element the better.. a 4500watt element would use just over 19 amps, so
thats cutting i...

Would a U-bend in the tubing help? That may prevent the air from escaping when the liquid is
heated.Not really.. the air at the end of the tube (or after the U-bend) would still be a

I get what your saying, but since air is compressible, volume of air affects the pressure the
water can exert on it.. I've seen the calibration results. This is why guys started adding
bubblers. The f...

Well.. your goals are all reachable! If all you want to do is maintain a constant temp, then
your options are VERY open. Anything from a simple PID with alarm to a BrewTroller would serve

You could look at the problem being either way I guess. When the air heats up and expands, some
of it can bleed out of the space, causing the volume of air to change, thus changing the
pressure. Your ...

The factor in your type of setup (and why people starting using bubblers) is that you risk
loosing air volume as it heats up (expanding) and loosing calibration of that sensor. Hence why

You can bypass the need for an aquarium pump by swapping out for direct contact sensors. There
are some options available, most are expensive, but BrewTroller is working to find less

Better is a subjective word... there are a lot of factors that determine what is best for you.
And in terms of a hardware list.. thats also highly dependent on multiple factors.What kind of
power do y...

Wiring is a huge issue, and can manifest itself over time. If you get any kind of arc or
corrosion you are going to generate more heat from resistance and BAM, failed SSR.Where are you
getting your SS...
