Posted in thread: Cold Crashing in sub 0 degrees celcius on 12-12-2013 at 09:23 PM
It will take a long time. The thermal mass of the inside of the fridge is relatively low. True,
it's -5 or whatever in there, but it won't take a lot of heat to pull that temp up. Once the
temp in the...

Disclaimer - I have not read Yeast, so if they call it a Forced Fermentation Test in there, I
apologize. I'd be surprised if that was the case though.
Posted in thread: Cris White's forced fermentation test - I need a little help with it on 12-03-2013 at 09:46 PM
This is not a Forced Fermentation Test. Forced Fermentation Test is when you pull a small
sample (like this) and grossly overpitch it. The point is to be able to determine what the FG
will be quickly....
Posted in thread: Daisy chain vs. home run for panel switches, indicators, PID, etc.? on 11-25-2013 at 12:37 PM
Agreed. With low power devices it is no problem. I typically try to daisy chain "down" in
current draw. So that the highest draw device is nearest the source and the lowest current
device has to go th...

I'd use tap water to ~100 degrees, then switch to pumped ice water. Grab a cheap pond pump from
Harbor Freight (don't forget your 20% off coupon) and you will be set up for under $30 or so.

Yeah, I'd worry about flux core wire, if it were solid like maybe SS Tig wire, you'd have been
fine. There's as many different kinds of welding wire as there are types of beers!Solid copper
is a good ...

Depends. There are many many different "welding wires" be specific about what you used and we
might can answer.

You do however need to keep it in the storage solution.Yep. Go ahead and get the probe in some
storage solution. Keep it in there any time you are not using it.
Posted in thread: Mystery gas in CO2 tank? on 10-17-2013 at 05:57 PM
Also, sticking a lighter into a jar of gas from an unknown cylinder is a pretty dumb move. If
it had been oxygen (or hydrogen or acetylene), you would have hurt yourself in all
likelihood.He MIGHT hav...
Posted in thread: Mystery gas in CO2 tank? on 10-16-2013 at 09:59 PM
Yeah, Nitrogen is about 5k and Argon is usually around 2-3k. Both are stored as a GAS, not a
LIQUID like CO2. They have to run tank pressure way up to get much volume in there.Also,
expelling liquid t...
