  • Posted in thread: Fresh strawberries, questions on 07-07-2014 at 02:47 PM
    I did a strawberry saison last year that turned out well. A little tart but overall dry and
    fruity. I agree with frozen and I just dipped the sliced strawberries in the starsan before
    tossing in the s...

    control box right but couldn't figure it out, after an hour of testing turned out my EE buddy
    had wired the ...

    I found it was easier to break up the wiring into smaller chunks, i.e. Master power, element
    power and switch, PID-SSR, PID alarm and switch. Made it a little less intimidating than the
