  • Posted in thread: Putting hot wort on a refractometer? on 01-11-2017 at 07:53 PM
    It takes about a minute longer to come to a reasonable temp, but I have dipped my refractometer
    right I to the kettle dozens of times with no issue. 212 doesn't seem to be hot enough to hurt
    them at a...

    I have a bucket with litre markings I measure first runnings in. After everything has been
    saturated and the mash tun dead space is full whatever I add I assume I get back out on the

    Mine are also hooked up to pin 3 and 4. 5 and 6 are definitely an extra relay for an alarm
    buzzer. The element continuing to fire past the set point us usually a bad PID tuning setting,

    Connect it after the contractor, the SSR isn't entirely reliable to turn things off. If you
    switch the contractor you know the element is completely off

  • Posted in thread: 150qt Coleman Xtreme Mash Tun on 11-26-2016 at 03:49 PM
    Trying to get the bag out of the tun and drained off isn't a great time once batch size goes
    bigger. If you were to do a sparge you can do 10 gallon batches in a 70qt cooler pretty

    You could put the metal braid from a hot water heater line on the kettle output, those work
    pretty well if you don't want to spend big money on a false bottom. I like those better than
    bazooka screens...

  • Posted in thread: New to CFC usage, hot wort in top or bottom? on 11-21-2016 at 02:14 PM
    If you're running a pump I would feed hot wort through the bottom. Having to climb the coil
    will slow down your flow rate and you should end up with a lower exit temp at the end

  • Posted in thread: Thinking about going rims or herms on 11-20-2016 at 02:51 PM
    I feel like one of the major advantages of a RIMS system is you can get away with 120v without
    it feeling like a detriment. A 1500W heater is definitely sufficient if it doesn't have to heat
    your init...

  • Posted in thread: Black Friday deals? on 11-18-2016 at 05:05 PM
    I'm betting they do. OBK over here in Canada does sales every year and black Friday is super
    new to the country

  • Posted in thread: Finally built my Rims tube and controller on 11-16-2016 at 02:17 PM
    You might want a valve on the output of it to limit the flow rate through it depending on how
    powerful the element is. The wort picks up a lot more heat on its way through the tube at a
    slower flow ra...
