Posted in thread: Brew-Boss vs Brewtroller on 11-28-2016 at 02:23 AM
BCS certainly isn't any more simple to implement than BrewTroller. Both are great systems, but
(and I am biased) BrewTroller does offer a bigger feature set, more inputs and outputs, and at
a better p...
Posted in thread: Are there any DYI boards to build a gas fired rig? on 11-06-2016 at 02:27 AM
I started this thread typing on an iPhone on a commuter bus, and maybe that wasn't a good idea,
because I wasn't able to be specific enough. I soldered together two iterations of the

I appreciate your reply, MrShake, since you sell brewtrollers now, that may be a solution for
others. The purpose of this thread is to find a way to build a DIY board, not buy one, that can

I meant to say things like a pid or brewtroller.BrewTroller would have no issue automating that

True, when adding liquid, the level will rise up in the tube. That's why mine probably works
ok... there is very little volume of air above the liquid level in the fitting, and it's a
large diameter c...

You are probably going to want like a 60l kettle for BIAB to have plenty of room for grainThe
more watts for the element the better.. a 4500watt element would use just over 19 amps, so
thats cutting i...

Would a U-bend in the tubing help? That may prevent the air from escaping when the liquid is
heated.Not really.. the air at the end of the tube (or after the U-bend) would still be a

I get what your saying, but since air is compressible, volume of air affects the pressure the
water can exert on it.. I've seen the calibration results. This is why guys started adding
bubblers. The f...

Well.. your goals are all reachable! If all you want to do is maintain a constant temp, then
your options are VERY open. Anything from a simple PID with alarm to a BrewTroller would serve
Posted in thread: Volume Measurement on 10-19-2016 at 03:09 PM
You could look at the problem being either way I guess. When the air heats up and expands, some
of it can bleed out of the space, causing the volume of air to change, thus changing the
pressure. Your ...
