Posted in thread: Auber PIDS for gas HERMS system on 08-08-2015 at 02:27 AM
On the Auber SYL-2362 you can change the cycle time from 2-199 seconds. Also it doesn't have
"fuzzy logic". If tuned correctly the PID algorithm should be more accurate without cycling the
valves too ...
Posted in thread: CONNECTING 2 regulators to 1 CO2 tank?? on 08-07-2015 at 11:02 PM
Good to know! My Taprite, Micromatic, and Norgren primaries have LHT so I assumed that was some
kind of standard. Nonetheless, you should pay attention to whether the fittings you use are
rated for th...
Posted in thread: CONNECTING 2 regulators to 1 CO2 tank?? on 08-07-2015 at 10:41 PM
You need a Left Hand Thread (LHT) nipple for many primary regulators because it is a high
pressure connection. They are designed this way for safety. The threaded brass parts like for
plumbing are not...
Posted in thread: 30% boil off rate for a 1 gallon batch on 08-07-2015 at 12:08 AM
That's all great, very detailed post and apparently you are some sort of student in a related
field. I'll concede it is true that surface area affects evaporation at the surface, but we're
Posted in thread: 30% boil off rate for a 1 gallon batch on 08-06-2015 at 09:50 PM
It depends on your pot size and the rate of boil (i.e. rolling boil or gentle boil). Obviously
a rolling boil will cause a higher evaporation rate, as will having a pot with a larger
diameter. Using a...

One thing I have not had a chance to play around with is potentially a decent solution is to
use the M6 bolt that is part of the PT-100 probe as the bolt to attach the ground wire. The
reason it may w...
Posted in thread: How Filtering Water Affects Mineral Content on 08-06-2015 at 06:09 PM
I have no idea what's in a Mavea water pitcher filter, but you should use a carbon block
filter, the larger, the more stages, and the slower the flow the better. It will not affect the

Search "iron oxide oxygen scavenger" and you'll find more than you wanted to know.Apparently
it's also sometimes used on the bottom of aluminum cans.From THE USE OF OXYGEN SCAVENGERS AND

Many people use 1/4" pushfit fittings with 1/4" polyurethane tubing. I don't know where you
heard they aren't good for holding pressure, but most pushfit fittings that I've seen are good
to over 100 p...
Posted in thread: What's their trick? on 08-02-2015 at 01:42 AM
That doesn't mean they sacrifice quality, it just means they have their process down to a point
where speed is a byproduct.I'll disagree as I think that's a misconception running through this
