I wouldn't do the jump thing unless there is/was an issue w/ serving temp. Each circuit has
either 12' or 18' x 1/4" ss tubing depending on type of plate. Jumping will lower the temp with
only a sligh...

I can give one insight - be sure to keep the cold plate out of water either by raising the cold
plate (eg putting it on foam, container, wood, etc); or opening up the drain plug. Water works
fine for ...

You can Change out the 3/8" tailpiece to the std 3/16. 3/16 reduces line pressure 1.8 psi per

I learned from the Auberin forum that the PID has 2 functions OUTL & OUTH that can limit the %

Are you familiar with the OUTL & OUTH PID functions? I tried it yesterday and it worked

13.5kw is huge. I use 7kw and I can raise 20 gallons of water two degrees/minute
(approximately). 1 BTU=1 DEGREE FARENHEIT INCREASE IN ONE POUND OF WATER. 20 gal x 8.4lbs = 168
lbs, so 168 btu's gives...

Thanks all. I like the punches - mine is similar but simply etched. Spike Brewing has a pot
with interior volume markings. Their numbers say etched but look like ink.I'll have the epoxy
adhesive (FDA ...

Thanks Jeuck. I've thought about that and even considered silicone o-rings for the different

I made a BK etched aluminum volume stick and it is somewhat hard to see the volume when

is both food grad...
