    Worse than inhibiting the yeast, tap water with chlorine or chloramine will also likely make
    your beer taste of chlorophenols, which is like lightly toasted PVC (IME).Read the Campden

    BTW, the touch screen on my Google smartphone and the trackpad and touchscreen on my Dell
    laptop really don't respond well with wet fingers. Something to consider in a brewery...

    ASSuming the switch on the top right of the photos is the pump switch, and the 120V AC supply
    enters from the bottom left, then it looks like the 12V power supply is switched on the AC
    side, with neut...

    BTW, I'd love if something like one of these sensors could be developed for the homebrew
    community. It's IR absorption based, I think, probably using filters matched to alcohol and
    sugar spectral line...

    The bubbles are also going to change size with the viscosity of the fluid in the airlock -
    starsan solution will be different to water and blowoff yeast will makes things very different.
    And this will...

    You want to check the resistance across the element while it is disconnected. It should be
    10.47 Ohms for a 5500W, 240V* element (P = Vē/R so R=Vē/P), maybe plus/minus half an ohm. You
    should then mea...

    If it passed any kind of inspection, the wiring on a 20A breaker will be 20A capable. That's
    the point of the code change (to allow two 1100W countertop appliances to run on a single
    kitchen circuit w...

    If the kitchen was wired recently, that outlet will be on a 20A circuit and breaker. That's
    been a code requirement for a while.
