@rappell About how far off does the re-circulation arm sit from the bottom of the basket?
@pretzelbDoes yours sit low enough to to a 5 gallon batch or do you have to put some tubing on
it? I'm curious...

After 11 days in the secondary I'm at a loss what to do. I need to leave on a trip and I was
going take this off the chips and keg it but I'm not getting a strong oak flavor. I added
another 1/2 cup o...

FYI - oak chips might sink but nylon bags float. Probably doesn't matter but my chips and bag
are at the top of the secondary.

So. This happened. Apparently the SSR melted. Yeah when we opened the panel, the bits that had
melted fell out. Tim was great and they are going to replace the panel. I'm sending it out

I went with 1 oz American oak with 1 cup of Woodford Reserve. Soaked it a few days then pitched
it all into the secondary. Going to take a sample after a few days.

So do you add 3 degrees to your mash temp? I would think if you were off at the top you would
probably be off at mash temp.The key is adjusting the PID to be accurate either using ice water
or an alre...

I bought some wood chips and a nylon bag and put them in a jar with 1/2 cup of Woodford
Reserve. I'm going to give it a few days then dump it all into carboy.

Where do you find how to calibrate temp? My PID shows 209 at boiling and I need to add 3
degrees to it.Look at the Auberins web site for PID 2632 I think. They have a manual.But my
boil is @ 207 so it...

Had anyone heard if it really matters if you weight down oak in a secondary or if it floats? I
have a nylon bag and I could use some glass marbles but I wonder if it really matters.

Good news there. Do you mean yours came with 3 degrees dialed in, or that you just made the
change yourself? Not that it matters I guess, just curious.I made the change myself after
realizing I never ...
