I did a MB pale ale and wasn't overly impressed. It tasted good but the MB hops are pretty 1
dimensional. They have an orange flavor - but with no citrus edge. IME, they are best used as a

Yeah, I know exactly what you meant, I just wasn't explaining it well...cuz I'm a layman too.
The power output to the coils, in my ignorant terms is, is in some sort of wave form generated

I doubt a PID alone wouldn't work. We'd need to evaluate what voltage and resistances are sent
through this thermistor at different temps, and find someway to mimic those signals via

You could probably rig something up in a long ss tube for a drop in sensor. It's just
preference. Measuring through the side is just as accurate. Remember, you need to actively stir
if not continuousl...

I use an old fashioned, $5 scientific thermometer.

The thermistor on induction cookers that have temp settings is measuring the temp of thermal
grease that was heated by heat transmitted through the glass top, which is heated from heat

I've been wanting to do a Brett one....hmmm.

My 4 year old chromes are fine.

The beauty of Perlicks is the forward valve so it's much more resistant to clogging up. SS is
great if money is no object, otherwise get the 525PC chrome plated ones. Don't believe the hype
on SS. We'...

pH could have been off. You may not have needed much salt for the mash. Consider picking up
some pH strips and don't add salts until after checking pH after 10 minutes of mashing.If its
too sweet, may...
