    How do you use the jar system when you do multiple dumps? Does the seconds and third one
    introduce an air burp like the catalyst videos?I don't... with the extensions the yeast has
    ended up staying be...

    Augiedoggy. Thanks for looking out, but neither of those elements look remotely like the one on
    Bobby's site. Plus if Bobby is commenting about failure of chinese elements I doubt he would
    sell the mo...

    Its going to be dependent on the jar you want to use but if you look in my pictures you see I
    added our custom leg extension kit to the bottom of my Conical. I honestly don't think with the
    "Stock" le...

    Do you sell the parts for that mason jar adapter thing on the bottom of yours?Jbird sells them
    on ebay for $30 each..I bought one there..

    Maybe do another boil in manual mode. I wonder if you could just boil sugar water to see if the
    pulsating boil was the issue?Yes that might help but those are all work arounds vs just using
    an ULWD el...

    The total volume for the ssbrewtech 20 gallon kettle is listed at 22.7 gallons. My thought was
    the 7.7 gallons of extra space would be plenty of room to compensate for evaporation and other
    losses to ...

    +1 same for me. Right now with my system dialed in and my pid on my boil kettle set to manual
    and 75% power, I start with 13.24 gallons in the keggle pre boil. Then in an hour I boil off 1
    gallon and ...

  • Posted in thread: Burnt/scorched element: what happened? on 12-01-2016 at 01:18 PM
    if you can make it work I would spring for an ULWD element so you dont have to worry about
    scorching.. I know it makes TC setups like yours less convenient to remove the element. I
    wonder if the sugar...

    Regardless of all the ways you can tweak things and take precautions to make that element
    work.... You can just replace it with a better ALL stainless 4500w ULWD element that wont rust
    at the base and...

I have another PID/SSR compatibility problem. Your insights have been very good, but the spec sheets aren't very detailed.

I have a MYPIN TA4-SSR pid, a lyhpccom:ruike electronics industry "SSR-40D" ssr, and a QCA-302 240V//24v-controlled mechaical hvac relay.

I don't get the SSR to control the mechanical relay. A transformer at 24V switches it ok.

I suspect the PID isn't pushing out 24V AC to event the mechanical relay.

Any advice on matching PID/SSR/MECHANICAL ?
