    That's 135C isn't it?Yeah, must have forgot the C...It will be good for keeping it from
    burning out the element, but that's about it.

  • Posted in thread: How loud are the panel mount LED alarm buzzer? on 02-12-2016 at 03:38 AM
    Loud enough to not think I would want it on a switch but add one during testing after I had my

    Interesting idea! Have you tried it out? Do you think it will scorch the wort?The average fluid
