    A reasonable post. Thanks Doug. $17 well spent on my failure and learning experience. With a
    new TC, I'll brew in Celsius, without the alarms everyone else includes in their panels,
    lamenting my inabi...

    I've tried drilling washers. It's nearly impossible. They're stainless, and they're thick, and
    they have no surface area to clamp onto. You'll burn out your grinding stone, step bit, and
    probably your...

    I'm assuming you read this thread and still have some questions. These PIDs are not that
    complicated once you understand what the different parts do. The Inkbird only has 1 alarm
    relay, not 2, so the ...

    Updated the instructions for how to setup your RPI on the Wiki. I just went through the setup
    from a blank RPI flash. After completing that and having your circuits setup and wired you can
    continue wi...

    These can be pretty confusing when you first encounter them and my advice may not do much good,
    but here goes. I have 3 TA4-SNR variants (okay, one is a TD4). I do not use AL2 on my control
    panel, bec...

    Way to play the race card. Real classy.

    I see you figured it out but I use a momentary switch to reset my timer... you need a
    maintained one for the pause feature though.Thanks friend, and yeah, I have to install a
    maintained switch for th...

    I ran my electrical line and installed a spa panel today. Control panel fires up as it should,
    so all's well on the electrical front. I also ran hot and cold water lines tapped from my water
    heater, p...

  • Posted in thread: Transfer From Fermenter to Keg - Your Method? on 01-15-2016 at 08:06 PM
    This is actually a dilemma I'm planning ahead for. I'm rebuilding my brewery after a move and
    my new fermenter is a Vittles Vault that will live in a small chest freezer fermentation
    chamber. I plan o...

    Haven't dropped a hydrometer yet, haven't dropped a carboy and I don't plan to, I've had a few
    bottle bombs (actual explosions, not just over-carbed), I've always been pretty mindful of
    boil-overs but...
