I couldn't believe it either. I'm attributing it to the fact that I had such a low temp mash
and added 2lb of brown sugar to the boil. I did an actual attenuation measurement (not
apparent) and it cam...

Well, thanks for knocking some sense into me. I haven't had time to take an gravity reading
until tonight. I'm sitting at 1.004 (to be expected since I mashed at such a low temp). Really
wanted to be ...

Did an all grain Pumpkin Ale this weekend. It was my first 10 gallon brew, and I didn't hit my
mash temps (was at 146F for most of it).Anyway, I just doubled a 5 gallon recipe. OG was 1.060.
I used 2 ...

Just go the new SSR this afternoon. Works like a champ! I'll be brewing a pumpkin ale
tomorrow.I went with the 40A one instead of the 60A. I couldn't find a datasheet for the 60A
anywhere online, whic...

I'm not taking my volt meter between the output and return, I'm taking it across the SSR and
across the heating element.The more I think about it, the more I am thinking the SSR is bad.
When I have no...

I will give the light bulbs a try. The leakage would explain it working under no load. Still
doesn't explain why I see all the voltage dropped across the SSR and not the heating element
when the led o...

Yep, LED flashes on/off.I can see the 12V from the PID toggling at the correct duty cycle with
a volt meter. I'll try a 9V battery and see what happens.edit:9V battery gives same result. bad

As requested (note, no neutral coming over, just 2 hots and an earth ground, on a 30A breaker):

I've been lurking around here for quite a while now, and I rarely post. I decided to go to
electric brewing. I am having problems getting the SSR to switch (at least I think...)My setup
is a basic as ...
