Posted in thread: Guide to set internal chest freezer thermostat to >32F; Eliminate external control on 05-04-2015 at 07:34 PM
I like your thoughts here. To play devils advocate I'd suggest that if you're going to use a
3rd party thermostat, do it right the first time. Get a unit that's got good resources on the
web for suppo...
Posted in thread: STC-1000 compatible probes & Battery Powered Thermo*METER* ideas on 05-04-2015 at 07:25 PM
I like to standardize components, so I can have spares and buy in larger quantities, and also
learn any 'quirks'. I already have two STC-1000 style temperature controllers. I'd like to buy
some spare ...

Thinking about it... shearing it off would just make it colder. STC it is.I mentioned this a
while back, but this is a loooong thread, so I'll repeat it:Using an STC is a good option, but
wouldn't it ...
Posted in thread: CO2 pressure drops when opening regulator on 11-05-2013 at 02:38 PM
It's reading 500+ PSI which is at least half full. Although I noticed that if I loosen the

Hey Ace, I've got a very similar chamber to yours. How are you measuring the temp? I've got the
eBay controller and just got a long stainless hollow rod that goes into my airlock and down
into the wor...

Every 45 seconds is still ridiculously fast, im far from an expert but from all my research
that will blow up the AC unit compressor fast....I know for Freezers for Keezers they tell you
to set the ST...

There is definitely a new equilibrium point when you change temperature, as the solubility of
gas in liquid increases as temp decreases. So when you chill a keg, you have two effects. One
is that the ...

Pretty close, as far as I know, but I'm not too good with chemistry stuff. If you say 'mole', I
think of mouse-like creatures, or a tasty Mexican-style sauce.Not really that important to
this, but in ...
Posted in thread: Keg conditioning-I'm missing something on 07-04-2013 at 06:55 PM
Just out of curiosity, if you have a keg, why would you not force carbonate? I haven't
naturally carbed anything since I got my keg setup.I naturally carb my mini-kegs, and I know
brewers who routinel...

absorbed into the beer .... ?Yes on the cartridge (or other CO2 source for dispensing), but
actually, I do not ...
