    I think these types of valves are pilot operated and require like 15psi to open. I don't
    believe it'll work in gravity (or even chugger/march pump) system. This fact probably got lost
    in the chinglish...

    You could even make it simpler than Bobby suggested. One SSR, tie the commons of your PID and
    PWM on the signal side and use a SPDT to switch which hot on the signal side is triggering the

    Yup...leaning towards MM2-2.0 with base and hopper. Will my Dewalt 18V cordless drill fit the
    shaft on it?If its a half inch drill then yes it would fit but I don't think it'll have the ass
    to turn it...

    Mineral deposits.Just leave a little starsan covering the bottom for a week. I do that after

    Yikes! Look at all that aluminum wire :( Did your home inspector say anything about it?Is that
    a subpanel or the main panel in the house?The dryer is probably the upper 40Amp double pole

    S-04 drops like a rock when it's done. Fermentation is just slowing. Give it another week and
    it'll be crystal clear. Or give it a few more days and then a few days refrigerated and it will
    be even cl...

    It depends on what your goals are. If you are wishing to move indoors primarily then putting an
    element in your BK with a controller would come first and do eBIAB. If you want to increase
    your mash te...
