Posted in thread: Do SSRs leak voltage on the high side with no input on low side? on 09-26-2014 at 02:56 AM
SSR's are current blocking and not voltage blocking. You will be able to measure a potential on
the switched side due to the high resistance of the meter without the element. The element has
a low res...

I personally wouldn't have any qualms tapping into it. If the pipe is close to your brewing
area, it would be an easy connection. A better alternative is to use a dryer vent though. A
long stack will ...

I'd let it ride for at least 36 hours with this yeast. You'll have to trust your sanitation a
bit with this yeast. I personally think the flavor and crispness of this yeast are worth the

Sounds normal to me. Most of my direct pitch beers started to show krausen at 24-36 hours at 68
degrees. This yeast is incredibly slow to start with cooler ferments. I pitched a split batch
at 62 degr...

Even my wild lacto Berliner was a bit slow to sour IMO. I'd leave in on the cake until any off
flavors have been cleaned up, add sugar yeast and lacto, and then bottle. Sent from my iPad

The brown ale that I had with a very long lag time (too cold pitch temp) fermented clean with
no off flavors that I could discern. My last brew was a split batch of BM's Centennial Blonde

I'm not sure how well those brushless motors can be slowed down. Might be better off putting a
valve on the discharge side to regulate flow. Sent from my iPad using Home Brew

Well, I had my first significant lag with this yeast, but it was my fault. I over-chilled my
wort to about 48 degrees (damn cold Lake Michigan water). It only got up to the low 50's by the
time I pitc...

How well do these pwm's work for you? Do they go from off to full throttle?I'm asking because I
bought this one for my panel: it barely reduces speed. I was considering getting a different
