  • About 7 years ago I bought a kit, 6gal bucket and 5gal glass carboy etc. and started brewing about every week end, and had a loyal band of beer swillers to help polish of each 5 gallon batch soon after it was ready. This was good because I got a lot of input about what I was doing. In the beginning I used extract with grain adjuncts, and experimented with many different recipes and different hops and yeasts. I brewed most every type of beer except lagers because I did not have a dedicated refrigerator, but that has changed. For a couple years my output was sadly about one keg a month, because I was in Graduate school so time was a little short.

    Now I have a house with a dedicated room in the garage. I have been trying to brew every weekend, and have a lot planed for the future. I have been brewing a lot of Belgian and English beers in the summer, and will get back to lagers as winter sets in. Not a long time here in San Diego.

    Thanks Kal, after disassembling my panel, a could tell it was "a)" that was the problem at the
    inlet. I could see where the un even cut of the wires was causing an arc and damaging the
    connection. So ...

    So I took apart the old panel and started re wiring the new panel. I bought a pair of
    ratcheting crimper and a wire striper and am paying close attention to the striping of the
    wires to there proper l...

    Thanks trimix, that's a good summery.

    I don't think you are supposed to tin the wire ends prior to crimping. It would interfere with
    the proper compression of the wire in the crimp. If you want to solder, do it after the
    crimp.Brew on :mu...

    Cool ratcheting crimper , That sounds like a good thing to get for the new build. I was never
    happy with the crimper I was using, but did not know how to test the connection, other than
    giving it a sl...

    I know I sound like an ass, but these issues your having are scaring me. You need to reevaluate
    your wiring practice. If you can get rid of those crimp ons or get the proper crimpers that
    apply the co...

    the wire size is fine... two factors are likely working against you though, is the wire rated
    for AC current or is the insulation for DC automotive use? 2} double check the connections at
    the ends of ...
