Posted in thread: Element selector swich causes erratic movement on PID on 08-25-2016 at 01:07 AM
It's probably noise pickup from the coils of the contactor if it's just for a second when you

Brewdog uses bramling cross with cascade in one of their older recipes - The Physics, an
American style brown.Harvey's use them their flagship best bitter.I'm about to use them in a

Posted in thread: Mashed too high on 08-10-2016 at 03:30 PM
I subscribe to the "beer making is magic" camp instead of "beer making is science" camp. I've
heard and read both that the first 15 minutes of mash temps are not too vital and I've also
read the major...
Posted in thread: Wiring an L6-30R for 110v output on 08-01-2016 at 12:26 PM
I was planning to limit the output using OUTH on the auber pid. According to their
documentation:OUTH can be used when you have an overpowered heater to control a small subject.

Bobby_M (and some others) has built a RIMS controller with a 5500W element that can switch
between 230 and 115 V with a single receptacle. You need to switch (with a break-before-make

neutral and GFCI ...
Posted in thread: Element Cable Question. on 07-13-2016 at 02:23 PM
The L6-30P plug is $11 and cable $1.75 a foot at Brewhardware, so $28.50 for a 10 ft cable,
which is almost certainly longer than you need.https://www.brewhardware.com/category_s/1908.htm
Posted in thread: Getting Shocked on 07-13-2016 at 02:13 PM
Is it possible that ground and neutral are reversed going into the GFCI outlet? That would
explain a couple of volts from outlet ground to the water pipes, and why the GFCI doesn't trip
(current is re...
Posted in thread: Accuracy of broken hydrometer (top cracked off) on 06-16-2016 at 12:01 AM
I've got a hydrometer that fell in the thief open side down, so the top 1/4" or so cracked
off.. I thought I might be able to still use it, give or take a couple points off.. ESPECIALLY
since I get 1....
Posted in thread: Using a handpull beer tap/pump with a corny keg on 06-07-2016 at 12:51 PM
Apply less than 0.5psi to the corny (e.g. using an LP propane regulator or low range CO2
regulator) as a "cask breather". Attach beer engine to the outlet.Keep the corny at 55F or so
or the beer will ...
