You say things like "the absolutely last thing professional brewers worry about" which makes me
think you're trying to build an argument that doesn't exist. Quote us some professional brewers

Posted in thread: ss fitting with aluminum pot on 11-29-2013 at 02:55 PM
I have an aluminum brew kettle that I use for heating strike water and boiling wort. It has a
SS ball valve and stainless fittings on the electric element I installed. No problems that I
can see. I do...

I love my Switchcraft connectors. Barely got the 10/3 SOOW into the ends, but a bit of oil
Posted in thread: How old are you? How long have you been brewing? on 10-13-2013 at 09:22 PM
I turn 32 tomorrow, and I'm just past 2 years brewing. Or is it 3?
Posted in thread: Can A PWM Deliver True 100% Duty Cycle? on 10-13-2013 at 02:12 AM
I can't even remember now. Like I said, my SSVR works great. One SSR, one pot, nothing else.
I'll move up to a PID soon enough, in the meantime this is a great solution. I had a 555 PWM
set up on a br...

It seems to me that you would be far better off (and much easier to accomplish) if you used a
SSVR to control your unit.Circuit: device: 40A Solid State Voltage RegulatorWishing you the
Posted in thread: Hop stand on 10-04-2013 at 08:25 PM
I've tried hop standing right after the boil and below the 180F mark. My perception is the
sweet spot is the 190/180F area.Interesting, I thought I'd read all the literature about hop
stands and I had...

I'd love a schematic as well. I'm using a variable SSR right now, it works fine but it's hot
because it's at such a high frequency (not even sure what it is right now). I'd rather have it
30hz or so, ...
Posted in thread: I Made A Big Hop Strainer on 09-30-2013 at 04:15 AM
So I ended up using it today on 2 brews, and it worked just fine. A pain to clean out, I need
to redesign the bottom (making a cylinder is hard when you just have a roll of screen).
