    difference in the speed factor.

  • Cleaning gear
    Take a steel wire brush to the rollers and clean them up good and then use some air to blow the
    rollers clean.If you don't have a compressor, a can of keyboard air duster would work.

  • Issues Under-Shooting Ferm Temps w/ Probe In Wort (Temp Controlled Freezer)
    The best method in my experience is to tape the probe to outside of the fermenter and cover it
    with a bit of bubble wrap to isolate it from the air. You get much less of overshoot than
