Awesome..how does it match up to the danish lager batch?The Danish Lager one is still lagering;
I was going to bottle it this weekend. It didn't attenuate as much (1.013 vs 1.010 with Chico),
and the ...

Just brewed exactly that - split 10 gal of Helles wort between US-05 and Danish Lager yeasts.
The Chico version was fermented at 66F, and came out quite good. It can actually pass for a
lager now that...

I gave up on trying to see if anyone else mentioned this, but I noticed you mentioned priming
issues with that pump, I have the same one, and the documentation said to not use it in the

Trying to follow how many ssr's you used. Per the diagram there were 4.2 SSRs - one per

How is the pump doing now? Any more problems with it? I received a modest Christmas bonus this

stranded in the ...

I have used and can recommend the knockout punch set from Harbor Freight - the 1/2" is perfect
for valves/sight glasses and control panel buttons and switches, and the 1-1/4" one works just
fine for t...

I'll change the plugs to male on the kettle. This was the excuse I needed to make better
element housing too. On another note, I have been having problems with my PID. I used auto tune

It's got female plugs on the kettle side. I used twist-lock outlets so they can't accidentally
come loose while brewing.This is a major problem - when the controller is on, the male prongs
are hot. Yo...

Here is a pic of my kettle from the side. Since the cords plug into the kettle, I used
twist-lock plugs. Yes that is Duct Tape on the element housing too. The boxes I used were
missing some knockouts ...

You may want to hold off the fan until you are certain you need it. If you have a large enough
heat sink, you orient it so that the fins are vertical, and you don't have it in a confined
space, you wi...
