    If it's stabilized you can add more to it. You're basically back-lemoning. :) There's no danger
    of restarting fermentation since you're not adding sugar, and there's no danger of killing off
    yeast sin...

  • Posted in thread: High Chloride to Sulfate Ratio on 05-02-2016 at 07:46 PM
    There's plenty of talk about Cl/SO4. Example: preference is to keep Cl low (under 50ppm)
    regardless of style, and alter the SO4 concentration to taste. Maybe around 50ppm or a 1:1
    ratio for malty be...

    Back from the dead! I finally put my hoses and power cords together and did a test run! Got a
    few dripping fittings but otherwise things are pumping and heating correctly. This weekend I'll
    tune my PI...

    I was under the impression that most people say mash hopping is a waste of hops. You don't get
    much/any aroma or flavor from them as the oils all isomerize, but you can do that in the boil
    (try first-...

    Just remembered - I used to use dilute ammonia to remove my labels. It should still work on
    full bottles, no heat required. Might take some rinsing to get off the bottle, but it shouldn't
    hurt anythin...

    Soak it in a bucket with some water and oxyclean. If it's a nice label it will slide right off
    and you can use a green scrubbie to get the residue off. Or tear the labels as much as you can
    and use Go...

  • Posted in thread: Humfree Contactor vs SSR on 04-09-2016 at 02:46 PM
    Common question. Contactors are for power shut-off (safety mainly) and SSRs are for controlling
    elements. Best to stick with the status quo on this one. :)

  • Posted in thread: potentiometer question on 04-05-2016 at 06:25 PM
    If I was testing I'd just install it on an element and boil some water, then go up and down and
    see if the boiling rate changes.
