+1If your temp probe is in the wrong area of the process, you can get some overshoot because of
the time lag.I've had best results with the probe in the top 1-2 inches of the
mash.Interesting. Mine is...

Been doing some more reading and I'm wondering if you have to wait until the temperature of the
probe equalizes before turning on the PID. When I first dough in and start recirculating it
takes a few ...

Hi everyone,I'm wondering if there's anything left to try to get this PID to work properly.
I've autotuned many times, played with some of the values, and even autotuned with a mash tun
full of grain ...

As far as the chlorine goes, you can get a filter to remove chlorine. I use an RV filter that's
rate NSF since I'm using a hose to fill mine.

How do you have this wired?You need wire the PID SSR outputs ( + and -) to the corresponding

I used an inline fan at 720 cfm. I think it was $90 at the time from some hydroponics store.
Though I'm undoubtedly now on some list of potential "growers." Sounds like some people have
good luck with...
Posted in thread: Anyone tried this timer in their CP? on 08-24-2013 at 02:51 AM
I also have a kitchen timer. It's magnetized and I just stick it on the keezer I use for a
fermentation chamber. I think it was $25. Works great and I don't think it really changes the
aesthetics of t...

Regarding the holes in your pots and the potential for leaks, if installed properly, weldless
fitting work just fine. You can buy an NPS lock nut for the elements at bargainfittings.com. It
will come ...

I recently figured out that my PID has a default autotune offset of 10 degrees. Had to go into
the menu and set the atdu offset to zero. After autotuning, my PID was dialed in.Could be your
PID isn't ...

I think I did note in this thread that you were against immersing elements in the wort. But if
you do reconsider this route, all you would need to do for the boil is size the wattage
correctly for you...
