I've figured it out!! :ban: I recently bought a refractometer but in the interest of being
concise I did not mention that I have been taking my measurements with it. What I did not
realise is that onc...

Thanks Pie Man,I think I've got lots of things to work on for the next batch. I was thinking of
trying a SMASH beer which should hopefully keep things simple for fermentation.Now I just have

Thanks for all the replies!:mug: It sounds like there are lots of things to consider and things

Hi everyone,I’m fairly new to brewing and I’m having some problems with stuck

BTW, does anyone have any experience with wiring up PIDs? I would like to modify the the
following design pictured below (credit goes to Disintegr8or for the drawing) to control more

The only downside would be the additional time required for 10 gallon batches. 4000w total will

Wiring Diagram: I am looking to build this same setup but with two (or three) elements hooked

You correct, they stopped selling to induviduals and will not set up accounts unless you LHBS

Thanks so much for all the replies! I think I will go ahead and order 2 of these, and maybe
