Posted in thread: Cheap Braumeister control panel? on 01-03-2016 at 10:37 PM
Check out the Open AdrBir project in the automated brewing section. It started life as a
Braumeister control panel clone. They have since added support for a 4-line LCD and other
features, but it look...

I like the ArdBir nano concept. I will make for a very clean compact build.

is an example of an Arduino shield hand wired. This is similar to what the ArdBir is based
on. It is not too complex, and I have brewed many batches with it.

Just finished getting 5 gal. of Bier Muncher's Kona Firerock clone into the fermenter.
Posted in thread: Stuck mash, Biab bags and recirculating on 02-20-2015 at 10:38 PM
I had the same set up. Mine had an inner basket that I drilled larger holes in. I had to
restrict the flow on the pump to about 75%, but still had problems with recirculation. Then I
purchased a bag f...

The Blichmann auto sparge looks like it might work well in you mash tun to control the level.
Good luck on the basement and congrats on the new addition to the family.

Cool looking set up. One question on the RIMS: how do you control the flow to keep the pump
from pumping all of the water out of the kettle and exposing the element?

Steve Matheson created the Brauduino which is basically a Braumeister clone using an arduino. I
copied and modified the code for my system which is a two vessel system very similar to what is
Posted in thread: Electric Single Kettle BIAB setup. Suggestions? on 01-02-2015 at 11:40 PM
I'm using a spa panel as my GCFI. It is about $80 from Lowes. I have it set up as an extension
cord from my dryer outlet to my garage. Mine is a 3-wire system. It is a dedicated circuit from
Posted in thread: Is Sparging Obsolete? on 10-23-2014 at 05:33 PM
I sparge only to get to my initial boil volume.I'm lazy and don't calculate grain absorption. I
just start with 7 gal. of water and when I'm done mashing, I see how much is in the boil kettle
and add ...
