    Was my turkey fryer, coffee makers, shop vac, compressor, vacuum, drill press, or table saw
    assembled by a knuckle head in his kitchen with some parts he ordered off the internet and had
    a QC regiment...

    You guys are all talking 240v - he's running a 120v panel.The way it's drawn up now will work
    fine with the element plugged in. You don't need a contactor so long as your switch between the
    SSR and th...

    I was in San Francisco dog sitting at my daughters and bored when I posted my hand drawing of
    mt control panel plan to this thread. Back home now where I have AutoCad so here is a clearer

  • Posted in thread: Flameout IPA Hop Experiment on 01-19-2015 at 06:16 PM
    I've done the bud light dry hopping tasting experiment in the past (similar to this I'm
    thinking I brew a 10-12 gallon starting brew and break it into 6 or 7 batches. Planning on
    experimenting with ...

    249458I had first used a torch(propane), but had a side that looked sketchy. So i cleaned it
    up, added more flux, then put the solder on once it began to flow.Note this was not a good
    test. This was m...

    Beer will go clear on it's own, given enough time. Near freezing, it may only take 1-2 days. So
    just try it; won't be clear in a day, but I'd wager it will be in a week.

  • Posted in thread: Speed of mash tun drain with fancy manifold vs SS braid on 01-17-2015 at 12:06 AM
    I too had slow drain speeds when using too small a diameter SS mesh tube. Got a bigger one
    (bazooka tube) and then it was fast.In terms of collapsing, many put a SS spring inside their
    tube. Probably ...

    I just tried a heat gun for soldering:249221Seems easier to control the heat than using the
    torch. It's easier not to burn off all the flux, which seems to be one of the biggest problems,
    IMHO.

  • Posted in thread: New take on dimpling, silver solder bulkheads? on 01-14-2015 at 05:05 AM
    Yes indeed. Why the but? It's not that hard to do. Video coming.Yeah, I'm probably thinking of
    the difficulty welding inside at the bottom inside of a pot. I suppose with a flame, you'd wrap
    the solde...

    Great idea, but are we talking soldering from the inside?
