Don't use your HLT for the heat exchanger, pick a smaller volume (2 L or so) to give the PID
more control over the temperature. People around here tend to favor electronic kettles, which
easily fit 5 ...

Aren't you better off with an independent heat exchanger in the 0.5 gallon range for your
HERMS?Smaller volume gives your PID more control, and you're free to focus on hitting strike
temp with the HLT...

How does the math work for safely running a 12V DC, 0.14A computer case fan on, say a 9V, 0.5A
power source? What kind of resistance do I need from a pot?I thought it was all about the
voltage and tha...

This thread really should be unstickied, locked and buried in a deep hole. While the first post
sort of contains some facts, it's also open to misinterpretation. The following 25+ pages
