  • Posted in thread: What can I 'repurpose' from a washer and dryer on 11-25-2014 at 10:38 PM
    Looking for a few ideas here. We are replacing our 15 year old washer and dryer and I'm
    wondering if there's anything I can re-purpose for home brewing from them. Obviously the washer
    motor might be g...

  • Posted in thread: A mild sour taste problem... Solved on 11-25-2014 at 01:15 PM
    That's what I thought too. I don't know how the gunk didn't get sterilized and/or washed out
    with the boiling temps and the PBW. I add my water to the kettle the day before I brew and use

    on my Xmas list.Off the subject but I'm surprised you haven't received a 'cease and desist'

  • Posted in thread: Thermostat controlled light bulb heater(pictures inside) on 11-17-2014 at 03:02 PM
    I have never seen a thermostat that will switch 120VAC. They are all designed to switch low
    voltage DC like the computer fan you show. The low voltage from the thermostat then controls a
    separate rela...

    gallons at 8.34 lbs. so you have 41.7 pounds of water1 btu raises 1 pound of water 1 degree and
    you need 60 ...

    Thanks for the answer. I was having a hard time understanding the code. Once I had your answer
    it makes perfect sense.

    First, thanks for taking the time to write this up.I have mine working (sort of). I have 5 temp
    sensors and they are all scrolling and apparently I have a bad DS18B20 because in the scrolling
    display ...
