Nah, that's much less geeky. I'm talking about building from scratch!Teehee... that would be
more geeky for sure

I missed the switches!!! It makes more sense now!Are we looking at the same diagram? Its
correct.As you stated the Contactors are for isolation.Contactors are being controlled by the 3
way Switch in t...

A true geek would just make their own PID using a $5 microcontroller! Then you could make it
automatically ramp temps, run off timers, switch pumps, cook breakfast... Sky's the limit!
:rockin:Or that ...

almost impossible to do a sour without running a stepped mash, wish i'd picked one up for my
mash tun monitor rather than a regular Auber 2352Not to be argumentative... but it is no where

This diagram shows you using SSRs to trigger mechanical relays.. what is the purpose here?
Especially if you are using the PIDs to control electric elements, get the proper SSRs to
directly fire the e...

I might know of a great controller that requires no coding..... ;)

What temp sensor are you using? It looks, as simple as you've done this, that an Arduino Pro
Mini would work, and be a tiny footprint. You can get mini clones for under 7 dollars!

Here are some points to consider (also, this is not intended to be rude, just a brain dump with
little thought on tact):- The power requirements for small boards such as the Arduino line or
RPi cost f...

I used the same silver soldering video to do my setup, I agree, it was fast and easy!!I also
concur that solenoids are the way to go for water in, they are just not ideal for moving wort
around due to...
