You could always T off the water line under the counter with a ball valve as well.

Ah okay thanks! That makes sense! I thought I had read something about the current but couldn't
remember where! So then if the contactor is just meant to stop the flow of current then the 30A

most fridges or freezers are 3amp or less. The relays are rated to 5amp each, and in real terms
switching very slowly compared to what they were designed for.Most fridges are 3a less running,

Its not properly detecting your sensors, likely due to wiring. Its unlikely the digital pin
went out.The SSR's dont detect, they are hard coded to be there. So seeing those doesnt tell

Thanks Brewski (and others who responded)....it does indeed appear to have just been stuck. A
little tap with a screwdriver handle seemed to fix it.Are there better alternatives to the
SainSmart? I tr...

You suppose pitching at 80-something degrees had anything to do with that ballistic launch?
;)That plot looks like an accelerated life test on your compressor...Cheers!I dont pitch @ 80

Yup im with the others, your probe(s) are screwed up. Resetting the Arduino may have brought it
back to life for a bit but you should definitely rewire them and possibly get new probes if
they still e...

After about a year hiatus I brewed up my first batch and fired up my DIY BrewPi fermentation
chamber. That batch fermented as expected and the fermentation chamber ran as expected. I
brewed again over...

Large-ish gauge solid copper can be a bit of a pita to use inside enclosures.But it'll
certainly work - perhaps better than stranded inside the screw terminals.And if you don't have
stranded wire of s...

The problem with the Immersion pro is its a peltier cooler, and just by the laws of physics
there are certain restrictions about how cold or hot it can actually get something. Im
skeptical such a smal...
