Yup! When boiling the wort will be in constant motion so positioning in relation to heat
transfer or similar really isn't important.Kal

Positioning doesn't matter. As long as any element that is on is submerged, that's good enough.
Leave room for anything else that is the kettle. Leaving some space around them can make

There is no Citra in Heady Topper.Possibly, I don't know. Just pointing out an error as the
original post says "This is the Heady Topper clone recipe from the current issue of BYO", but
it isn't due t...

Nothing wrong with fusing absolutely every component (as some people do), but I feel it's
overkill. It's a personal choice.Kal

You can if you like, but there's no specific requirement for it. You're building an
experimental "home use" panel, so there's no requirement to do anything any specific way. Kal
Posted in thread: Need help on which wiring diagram is for me on 07-19-2014 at 02:04 PM
This is not specific to the boil coil, but any heating element (low watt density doesn't have
anything to do with it) if you're only boiling then running it 100% may be fine if your volume
of beer is ...

What size wire to the SYL2352 PID and from PID to SSR?It's very low voltage/low current, so
small 22 ga wire is fine. However, you may find it easier to attach something fatter like 14
ga. That's what...

FYI - I've got the Mar/Apr 2013 BYO magazine in front of me with the recipe (see page 58). The
first post here gets everything right but missed the 1oz of Citra (primary dry hop).Kal

No dehumidifier (outside of some giant room sized unit) can remove that amount of water per
hour. In my case my electric brewery boils off 1.9 gallons/hour. That's a lot of water.Kal

Actually, no. I had a custom hood built and a vtx600 vortex fan with air return being
installed.Careful with the sizing of the fan and using natural gas. That's a 452 CFM (only) fan
