Posted in thread: HERMS coil de-naturing enzymes? on 12-01-2012 at 03:17 PM
I'm just starting to brew with my HERMS coil. I've done a couple of batches constantly
recirculating, but pulling the liquid out and returning it to the bottom of the MLT. I need to
look up the term "...

I bought an ultrasonic sensor pretty cheaply (~$10) that I've been wanting to use to sense the
water level in my Hot Liquor Tank. It transmits an ultrasound pulse, measures return time, and
gives a ra...

Deweyville, never heard of it but wiki tells me you're almost in Idaho! What's your line of
work if you don't mind me asking? How long you been brewing? Thanks for the answer on the SSR
btw. When I ge...

It was the fan. BTW, I have the 40A SSR. Heat sink is installed with thermal grease. Fan needs
to blow continuously on heat sink, no problems after that.

I have turned it down during use and I think that might be working. I'll have to check to be
sure. However, I have measured close to zero voltage difference between the SSR output

Thanks. I'm hoping this will solve my efficiency problem.

Hi,I've got an electric HLT with a 5500 W element being controlled by a cheap little PID (1/16
DIN dual digital) and an Amico 25W SSR. At 5500 W, the current is 25A, 100% of the SSR rating.
Now, I pre...

Hi all,I've finished my brewing system - a 10-gallon HERMS with the HE coil in the HLT. My mash
tun is plastic 15 gal with several ports, some at the bottom and one on the side near the top.
