    10k Ohm is probably way too much resistance. I doubt that you can get a useable adjustment
    range with that. To get an approximate value, you can divide the fan's rated voltage by the
    rated current. In...

    I have been using one of these made from a section of copper tubing and it works great. FWIW, I

    designed to...

    Two of my favorite IPA's are Rock Bottom's Hop Bomb and Widmer's X-114. Does anyone have a
    clone recipe for either of these, or a proven recipe that uses Citra hops? Extract or partial
    mash please. I ...

    I used an 8" quick tube also. It worked great. I taped one end to the tube to get started.
