    I've been using the 2Kw system here in NZ since it started and I couldn't be happier to be
    honest. For someone like me, who lives in a small apartment, it's great....I think you all
    missed my point, u...

    Wow, that's quite the rant, very impressive. I was skeptical of the boil-off too but after
    showing the video that was posted on the Kickstarter page to several folks in my HB club who
    said it looked s...

    Either I missed it or nobody explained the important factor here to the original poster here.
    It's NOT how much current you draw during normal use. It's the current that the circuit breaker
    will trip ...

    I know this post is off topic (back to the original topic actually) but today's article really
    missed the mark for me. I am not trying to berate the author or devalue the hard work that has

    I looked at your kick starter page; there are two immediate problems with this:1. Yeah, you can
    probably boil (barely) 5 gallons, but most 5.5 gallon batches (to get 5 in the keg) will have
    about 7 ga...

    Nothing wrong with the fotek; BIG problem with the Fotek counterfeits. There are pics on how to
    tell if you have one.

  • Posted in thread: Choosing a Pump on 05-16-2015 at 05:03 AM
    To the original post - pumps are rated for flow and head(height of pumping, friction losses
    basically). At zero head, a pump may do 3 GPM; at 10 ft of head, it may do 0 GPM. So if you are
    going real h...

  • Posted in thread: What PID should I get? on 05-05-2015 at 01:32 AM
    I have seen a lot about the Alberin SYL 2352 but it is a lot more expensive than a lot of other
    options. I have found some PID with ssr and thermocoupler for 20$.What's the difference? I need
    one that...

  • Posted in thread: Why is my beer finishing so low??? on 05-05-2015 at 01:17 AM
    1. Never use sugar unless making Pliny the elder, and then only a little. It's a high alcohol
    bomb for making hop candy.2. Mash techniques vary. When you measure mash, check like crazy with
    a portable...

  • Posted in thread: Wyeast 1056 (American Ale) Temperature Questions on 05-05-2015 at 12:58 AM
    Are your temperatures ambient or directly measuring the wort? As you may know, during active
    fermentation the wort temperature may be quite a bit higher than ambient.I'm in the practice of
    wrapping a ...
