  • Posted in thread: BCS 462 grounding on 10-26-2015 at 02:30 PM
    I've read many times to ground the BCS controller to AC ground. Is this to mean the AC ground
    and DC negative are common and can share the same rail, or is this grounding the BCS
    controllers chassis t...

    1 - use whatever you want, as long as you can sterilize it...a stainless cup measure from the
    kitchen would work just fine.2 - cold crash if you want...if I had to cold crash how you are

    Why not use 110 VAC Motorized Valves as well? Why mess with the power supply?12V relays needed
    the power supply, so it was going to be there anyway. It is making wiring things up pretty
    clean and keep...

    What if I turn off the gas, and keep the pressure valve open for 24 hrs would that help take
    the carb out of it?You could also try something like this: one that is a bit more sensitive
    would be bette...

    Keep it set to your normal serving pressure and keep bleeding it off a few times a day, the
    over carb will slowly work its way out.

    Ive had Union Jack a few times, and I dont think that hop bill looks right for it. That beer
    has much, much, much more hop character than a measly 2oz would give. I guarantee you its
    bombed late in th...

    I also shook them up in their respective containers after the split. Not familiar with pitch
    rate as I just poured in each yeast container into the 2.5 gallon batch. The result from 1272
    definitely fa...

    In my experience 1272 has more flavor than its Cal ale counterparts. However, there are plenty
    of variables that can impact your experiment. The act of shaking then pouring half could result
    in one ha...

    If you used RO water and didn't add salts back to create some buffering capacity its pH would
    likely drop low especially with the darker malts.

    After I made this post yesterday, I started looking up similar threads and a lot of folks

I was just looking at your information and see that you are from Washington, the state. It made me laugh. I am from Idaho and feel that "Washington" is the state and the city should be designated as "DC". As an aside, I live in Northern Idaho (Sandpoint) and people always call it North Idaho. It is small, but it drives me crazy, just the same was "Washington State" does not set well with me. Anyway, I liked your small editorial. Mark
