  • Electrical Engineer
  • A work associate brought me one of his home brew. It was amazing. So, I bought Palmer's 'How to Brew' and started buying/putting together equipment. Equipment when I brewed my first batch: Immersion chiller, kegerator with two corny kegs, custom SS tap and tap handle, SS turkey fryer for full wort boil.. My hydrometer came in the mail while my first batch was in the fermenter..

    This thing is so new, I doubt it. Jump on the knowledgebase and search around. There is a lot
    more stuff now than there was a couple months ago but it is still limited.

    I'm using the Micro830. Version 1.01 of their software just came out a couple weeks ago.
    Version 1.00 was extremely buggy although 1.01 is a vast improvement. The Micro800 series uses
    a different soft...

    Well, I read a couple places that the grease was not food grade and not safe to eat/drink. One
    website mentions that the shaft is made of some material unsafe for eating and drinking. But
    several thre...

    I'll be watching this thread closely. I'm a controls engineer and have an AB processor and HMI
    I'm playing with for my electric build. I'm already jealous of your panel. Looks nice! My stuff
    is in a c...

    I realize this topic has been exhausted but I have spent hours over the last several weeks
    searching this forum and other sources and have found nothing more than conflicting information
    with a majori...

    Finally got a chance to brew today.. Ground 22lbs of grain with the mill and my only complaint
    is the noise. It is quite loud in an enclosed area. I like the speed adjustment a lot. I'm not
    sure why b...

    Dude...Can you post the schematic? fairly sure this is it. I'm not 100% on the resistor value.
    I tried to read it from the pic I posted as I don't have the device with me at the moment.
    Those resisto...

    The 1/2" chuck was way too long. I was going for compact so I took it off. I ground down the
    1/2" threads coming out the drill to make it shorter and made a coupling with a 1/2" bolt which
    allowed me ...

    I cut the handle off the drill. I surely have some more photos around here somewhere.. The
    drill is this one here.. I got a coupon off the internet which brought the drill total down to
    ~ 35 usd.1/2" ...

    Looks like a simple AC Voltage Regulation circuit. The IC is a BTA16-600B and it looks like a
    couple of small capacitors. I am sure there schematics out on the interwebs.These circuits (a
    SCR with a D...
