    They do have good customer service. I'm not surprised they came up with a controller, but
    there's nothing like building your own.

    Slow and steady, low speed high torque. You'll get the hang of it, the key is to use some oil
    and stop every few steps to re-lube and let the metal cool down. Don't force it or you'll work
    harden the ...

    Pretty slick.

    If the kit has each type of grain separate then you can split. I suggest buying bulk and do
    your own measuring.

    Saisons are more of a feeling than a style. As long as it's bone dry and relatively light it's
    a saison to me. Otherwise throw in whatever's on the farm, I like wheat and rye (not at the
    same time) an...

    I recall it tripping one at my buddy's house (but there was also a freezer plugged into it). Or
    maybe the outlet is 20 amp?GCFIs do not like fridge/freezer compressors or large pumps. Find

    That's a nice little controller. There's no reason you can't use all those parts (except the
    enclosure of course) in a Kal style controller if you decide to go that way eventually. I will
    say having a...

    The lower the watt density the more time you have before melt down, some folks will dry fire
    their ripple elements to clean them. I've dry fired mine a few times when I forgot to turn off
    the HLT duri...

    What was the watt density? When it comes to terrible things that could happen during brew day
    that's not too bad, I'm sure your GFI would have saved you from current leak. At least your
    RIMS didn't tu...
