    Hrm. Curious as to why they would only connect the second lead from one post to the other post.
    Unless it is meant as just a way to add strength to the setup, read: keep the cable from

    I was not using a fan and you are right - it might have been OK with a fan. I was comparing the

    the same...

    Mattd2, that schematic is probably what I'm going to need to do. I've only messed with 120v
    controllers in the past. So I was a little quick to pull the trigger. I noticed afterwards that
    there were s...

    I can always re-pitch if needed, I suppose. I guess the only way to know for sure is to let it
    finish what it's doing and check it when I transfer to secondary. I'm just baffled, never had a
    issue wit...

    Well, the first brew day of the season kicked off on Sunday. I had stopped into High Gravity in
