    I went with a 4-pin audio connector from radio shack. it's for a HAM radio typically, but I
    wanted it for the 4 ports. that plugs in to the box on my stand carrying BOTH valve signals. I
    did this beca...

    LOVE this beer. any tips on grabbing the yeast from an unfiltered beer instead of bottle
    conditioned? I have a couple 12 ozers of this - but no sediment to start with. Curious if the
    process is slight...

    Drew,I did a lot or research, but I have a pretty solid background in basic electrical work
    through theater, A/V and physics classes (15 years ago, ha). most of this stuff is pretty
    straight-forward l...

    nothing good. slipped on wet floor, slipped out of my hand. just embarrassing, really.

    thanks for the feedback. The water is flowing correctly, unrestricted. I am indeed
    recirculating wort back to the kettle for 20-30 minutes (depends on beer type) after knockout.
    I will move a ball val...

    I have a pump-fed 40-plate chiller on my brewstand, and it took me 90 minutes to get my 10-gal
    batch down to 85 degrees at a trickle.I've gotta be doing something wrong, but I can't figure
    out what.gr...

    yes. My problem was a voltage drop between the switch, LED indicator light and the PID/valve.I
    had a DPDT switch, so I just sent one side to the LED indicator and the other side to either
    the cable ti...

    Hall,yes, the VR8200 valve can sit on a rigid piece of gas pipe. The unit comes with an adapter
    for that. That's not a bad idea, actually - but I don't know if I'd want my valves down that
    low.edit no...

    Carl,It's 1.5" tube, at (I'm pretty sure) 1/8" thickness. This project goes back quite a while,
    and I did it with a friend who fabs stuff who took some of what he had laying around in his
    garage, and ...
