They can be wired directly, nothing is required inline. The first set of terminals is 110/220
in, the other 2 are the 24v out. There is no split on the output terminals, you can run any
Posted in thread: Just made 5 bottles of cider, forgot to take OG readings, can you help guage ABV on 05-03-2015 at 03:13 PM
No one can answer that without a bit more information. What is the volume of the juice cartons,
and what is the sugar content of them? You'll be able to find that on the label
Posted in thread: CFC sanitation on 05-01-2015 at 08:14 AM
My CFC is also copper pipe stuffed through a regular garden hose. I dump a few gallons through
it to sanitise at the end of the boil and have never had an issue with the hose being damaged.
Once it ge...

I only use the refractometer hot side, which makes sample size irrelevant. Everything can be
dumped back in with no contamination worries. It does take way less time and effort to get a
few drops to a...

No worries, it was easy math. Take half your batch size(gallons), that many pounds of sugar
should get you 23 points. Which is just about exactly what you were after there

Glad I could help. I've never really understood the allure of refractometers in brewing, with
the exception of an arguably more accurate OG. You'd be surprised how many people make that
exact same mis...

1.75 lbs should get you to about 1.082 if my quick math is right

There's really no reason to not get a 5 amp supply, still comes in at about $20 and it gives
you a bit of overhead. I've also stress tested mine with a 10W resistor and it starts making
weird noises w...

I have a 12v and a 24v version, the 24 is definitely faster and can handle more head pressure,
the 12 has a pretty difficult time raising liquid more than a few feet. I use a power supply
designed to ...

The only reason I really cared enough to buy a mill was to get the reduced cost through my
homebrew clubs group buys. $30-$40 per 50lb sack adds up really fast compared to $2 a lb.
Knowing the gap doe...
