    Bumping this old thread, hopefully someone's can help me out. The mosfet linked by op is not
    made anymore, so does anyone have a part # for an equivalent?Your standard BS170 will probably

    Sorry to resurrect a three and a half year old thread but what did you wind up doing. Im
    basically doing the same thing in some laundry room cabinets and am not yet sure how I plan on
    sealing the door...

    Rocketman768 This looks like something that I could actually pull off. Thanks for your posting.
    But, I'm not an EE and am a little lost on the mouser site trying to narrow down your parts

    Does anyone have any idea on whether or not I can drill right through the top on this fridge?
    Help would be hugely appreciated!I haven't done it yet, but I think there is a coolant line
    running across...

    so my two drains were tied together electrically through the heatsink!Lol! It's always the
    innocuous mistakes...

    If you have an oscilloscope, monitor your VCC line and you will see a huge dip in voltage
    across VCC every time a fan turns on. More than likely the feedback across the power buss is
    causing the other...

    Have you tried emailing the brewery? Not saying it always works, but I've emailed breweries
    with questions just like that and gotten answers.... albeit not the answers I was hoping for,
    but still. Per...

    What yeast is that at the bottom? Does anyone know for sure? Was thinking about plating it out
    and culturing it if it's interesting.

    I guess I have a DMS problem.Seems like whenever the recipe has a significant portion of
    Pilsner malt, the judges always report cooked corn and DMS. I boil off 2 L/hr. It's all I can
    do with my stove....

  • Posted in thread: Max amount of Carafa I in a batch? on 04-29-2012 at 05:30 PM
    What's the maximum amount of Carafa I you have used in a batch, and how did it turn out? I want
    to brew a really roasty Citra black IPA and put 10% Carafa I, but the max I see people using is
    5%. Is 1...

Let me know when you get that gravy beer up and running.

Liked the MLT design you posted on FB. How did the SS braid hold up? I opted for a 3/4" water heater SS braid for mine, and used a SS bolt to plug the free end and to weight it down in the mash.

How'd the Pliny clone turn out? Or is it still in the fermenter?

Not a chance. I like beer with my hops. :D

When's the next tasting? After this party on the 16th, I can host everyone at my place for a tasting. Especially since all my stuff is on tap...
