    :off:I wanna hear what 194 dB sounds like! But only seconds before I die.Similarly I want to
    know how bright it would be if the Sun went off as a type IA supernova.Apparently, viewed from
    the earth it...

  • Posted in thread: Anyone use these two elements? on 02-12-2016 at 02:00 AM
    An external heater is going to be less efficient than an immersed heater, so that may scupper
    that option.

  • Posted in thread: Boil Control with Pontentiometer? on 02-11-2016 at 01:47 PM
    I used an SSVR for another project, a blower for a bronze casting furnace, and found that the
    typical potentiometer range is terrible. 2/3 turn of the control does nothing, then the last
    1/3 gives 100...

  • Posted in thread: Show Your Electric Brew Day Pictures! on 02-06-2016 at 06:12 PM
    This is my first attempt at brewing fully electric in the basement. I'm in the middle of
    mashing with the 10 gal cooler and RIMS tube, and heating sparge water in the electric
    kettle.This is a very bu...

    If you are prepared to swap the 9/16" ball lock to a 19/32" ball lock post ($8 for the post at
    AIH), you can use this 1/4" MPT to 19/32" 18 post fitting adapter. It's easy enough to adapt
    1/4" MPT to ...

    I can get the ripple element through this 1.5" no problem and no contact.Bah, wish I knew about
    this a week ago then! Now I've got a 2" hole in my kettle. Guess I'll take the Still Dragon
    fitting to w...

    They are in! Unfortunately the pricing was higher than I expected but I may be able to get it
    down a few bucks once I ramp up quantities. I think the biggest challenge is making the 1-5/8"
    hole. I hav...

  • Posted in thread: How to automatically cut power to an induction cooktop? on 02-03-2016 at 04:40 PM
    Correct. For safety reasons any high power device such as this shouldn't turn "on" when first
    plugged in. You need to figure out how to bypass this.I don't think he necessarily needs to
    bypass it. As ...

  • Posted in thread: Swa-2441 pid on 02-01-2016 at 09:28 PM
    Could I use the timer function from these on a PID(2352) that might need an external timer?I
    guess you could wire the SSR output of another PID through the relay and use the timer feature
    to cut off t...

    Yep, that's the right thing. I just bought a 30A dual pole contactor on Amazon for $10. Seems
    to work on in my new kettle controller.
