Part of the answers depend on whether you are going to be doing 5 or 10 gallon batches, or
both. I kept my return ports and temp sensors low so I can do 5 Gallon batches.

I've had good luck removing the black nasties from a few elements after scorching them. I found
that a soak in muriatic acid works wonders. The crud will fall off with little persuasion. Then

I think the lesson should be leak test your gear before you use it, then you don't have to
worry about this. If you have leaks, you are still going to lose gas while you are actively
carbonating. And ...

Sounds like a really hot room. Have you tried turning the AC on? Seriously though, you have
given us almost no information. What type of temperature probe do you have? Have you changed
the PID setting...

I finally busted out my kill-a-watt meter to measure the power consumption difference between
being on and when the monitor goes into sleep mode using the latest pir script. I am powering
both the mon...

Instead of a valve, how about a speed controller for the fan?Cheers!If he has an unused output
on his BCS, he can drive a PWM output for this. You could use the output to control a SSR or a
FET to dri...

Shouldn't need to be terminated. I2C is open drain so the pull-up resistors help prevent
reflections. Most I2C devices use over sampling so they are able to withstand a minor glitch
from reflections o...

I wonder if i ran separate 12v+ and 12v- to each one directly off the power supply would help
and use the jumpers just for the 2 blue wires to daisy chain them together. Thank you.You

Do you have a multimeter? I would measure the 12V rail as you turn on the panel to see if the
voltage droops at all. Ideally you would use a scope as that will allow you to zoom in on the
time axis in...

The kegs are much thicker than the "Chinese" stainless steel pots (or any stainless pots for
that matter)... the hole you pictured looks just like the holes I made when I was applying too
