Posted in thread: dc to dc ssr question on 06-04-2014 at 08:41 PM
Hmm. Thanks for the input on wiring the SSRs. Is the DC to DC ssr viable in this
situation?Should be, yes. You could use a mechanical relay for both as well. With as few cycles
as they will see a mech...

Does it have an effect on beer though? Yes. Your bubbles in a glass of beer on an airplane
don't go straight up. They go up along a path slightly misaligned with the vertical. This was
pointed out to ...

I think the SSR's should be in parallel, not series. So take the output of the wall wart and
the float switch directly to each SSR. Two individual paths, not a loop.

Wort is very sweet prior to yeast addition but to be honest I've never sampled wort before
yeast. Not really on the topic, but start tasting! Even a couple times through the mash. You
can learn a lot...

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...
Posted in thread: 50' wort chiller? How to make it more efficient. on 10-24-2013 at 03:45 PM
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 ...
