Keep in mind that a PID is a precision piece of electronica. We can calibrate it for one set of
thermal conditions, but once we change those conditions, the calibration becomes compromised.

I put these settings in and put in 10 gallons of water set the target to 150 and it overshot to
152. Is that normal or should I adjust more?I'd probably just live with it. You want your PID

Could you send those to me? I've tried autotune and am still seeing overshots of 3+ degrees.
I'm a little bit annoyed it's not performing better. Thanks!I'm using P = 0.2, I = 350, d = 20,
SouF = 0.7....

I'm on my second one. The first one I got had about a 3/4" scorched spot after the first brew.
Shot Bobby a picture of the element after a cold water flush and sponge off. He declared it

Tim sent me a link to their forum for adjusting the temp control. I too am using a 5500W
element and mine was off nearly -6 degrees. I am planning to run the autotune tonight as a
friend said it can t...

Thanks, I will compare tonight. I assume you just did the auto tune and let it do it's thing?I
did the auto tune but didn't like the overshoots and undershoots I was seeing. Ended up setting

Anyone have a link or want to explain how to calibrate the PID? I have the 20 gallon and the
PID doesn't have any branding on it. On their downloads page it's a one page PDF that might as
well be Gree...

If you skip the dry hop keg and just dry hop twice in the primary, you might be wise to remove
the first dry hop addition before adding the second dry hop addition (if possible). Leaving dry
hops in a...

Just make sure if you are moving directly to serving keg you do 2 things:1.) Make sure you are
careful about the transfer...... put the fermenter on the counter the day before, pour off the
first few ...

I use a similar setup, but I screwed the post onto a flare fitting (don't remember the actual
size). The flare seems to keep the poppet in place for me. Take your post to the hardware store
and find s...
