    I have two 2000w stainless elements in my kettle now, but started out with just one and I could
    bring 5.25g to a boil. I know most people say you cannot, but I did. I never really tried over
    that amou...

    Mine looks similar after some switching. I have ordered SSRs now, hope it works..Let me know
    how it works out for you.

    I have the same problem like you bayoujeeper..I added decoupling caps, switched power supplies
    and changed relay modules. I tried very short wires from and to the shift register and the
    problem is sti...

    Also, I followed a different wiring diagram (post 1174, page 118 of this thread) that has 10k
    resistors at pins 11,12, and 14 of the shift register, and yours does not, not sure if that
    matters or not...

    You definitely want to have a couple/few capacitors (between .1uf to 1uf) across power & ground
    on your bread board or protoshield, especially near the shift register. I used radial leaded
    .1UF caps o...

    I soldered in the CAPs and still no luck.. Still get a garbled LCD when the relays trigger..
    Guess I need to dig out my 9v wall wart and see if powering the arduino helps.

    Two things I'd be looking for: - if you're powering the Uno via USB, there can be significant
    voltage drop on the 5V at the Uno, depending on the cable used (some aren't too bad but I've
    tested a coup...

    I have read through this as I have cobbled together a brewpi as well and it is working great
    except for one issue, when the relay (Sainsmart 2ch) triggers it garbles the LCD and I
    basically have to po...

  • Posted in thread: Table Beer - Bru'n Water pH too low - Dumped Mash. Twice. on 02-09-2015 at 03:18 PM
    I have noticed in my experience that Bru'n water always over shoots (or undershoots I guess,
    since the pH is going to low! :cross: )with any kind of acid addition. I use Brewers Friend and
    it tends to...
