Auber's support is phenomenal. Every question I've e-mailed - even on weekends - has been
answered w/in an hour. I'll give 'em a little slack in the price dept. for that.Agreed. I got
confused one day...

I've become an avid user of fermcap as well. Not so much for fermentation, but for the boils.
Especially for preparing starters. I boil the starter wort right in my Erlenmeyer, with the
shape of an Er...

Just NEMA 4 is necessary...4X is actually NEMA 4 but corrosion resistant. Honestly, neither are

Just scored a 16"x14"x6" from eBay for $70 including shipping. I think that should work - it's

It should also be noted that you need to use separate 110/120v and 220/240v. The PID

stuff and have some...

I used a 12x12x6 box from home depot. It takes some planning, but it wasn't too hard to get
everything in there. The Pol did his in 8x8x6-Screw that-with my mediocre wiring skills it
would look like c...

Agreed, nice write-up. I also like the idea of the bottom drainI have a question - not sure if

True, but it would be nice to unplug the MT probe and plug in the HLT probe so I can monitor
both w/o actually removing the probe.I think I'm leaning toward installing a bulkhead fitting
on the MT and...
