Posted in thread: In Line 5 Micron Filter Before Primary on 11-23-2015 at 07:45 AM
I think a 5 micron filter would clog so fast it wouldn't even be funny, as even just straining
through a cheese cloth type thing will clog. I hear some ppl use a biab bag to strain off hops

If you are using a RIMS tube, the easiest and non-invasive solution would be to put a simple
bimetal thermostat (that cuts at 80-90C) on the tube. Let it cut the control signal the heater

@mattrox: Well, I'm not really gonna try to talk you down if you want to try it. But
personally, just calibrating is good enough for me.The STC-1000 is what it is. It is good value

@mattrox : If you want to mess with this stuff, then have a look at the NTC LUT generator that

placed in betw...

You gotta link for that? I have seen then but was having issues finding one a couple years ago
when I first saw them. They did seem to be the safest option.Just search ebay or ebay.co.uk,

I loathe the bulb in a can. And especially the instructions for how to build them that are
