    +1 on the weird stuff happening. I used it for a couple of brews and it worked perfectly. Then
    for some reason the temp probe/cable failed. They sent me a new probe and cable, for free, even
    though I'...

    Why don't you just take it apart and clean it out? You only have to remove 4 screws.

    I did the exact same thing recently and the beer turned out great. You will probably be fine.

    Just got a 20 gal batch to the fermenter and my Ohmbrew Fermostat is throwing a "no temp probe"

  • Posted in thread: Heather Ale: batch (probably) ruined after a "dry" addition of heather on 11-24-2015 at 02:45 AM

    Drank massive amounts of Robin Hood Cream Ale in college, especially freshman and sophomore
    years. Still remember the catchphrase printed on the labels:"Hail ye, men of adventure! Join
    Robin Hood for ...

    I just set mine on the little top shelf that still fits in the fridge.

  • Posted in thread: How long before I see a sprout on 06-09-2015 at 02:39 PM
    I have seen a lot of variance in my first year hops so far. Some broke ground within two weeks,
    other rhizomes of the same strain (Cascade) in the same dirt/light/water took over two months
    to come up...
