    After reading and looking at the pictures I now see the problem. You need a stainless support
    washer on the inside of the cooler because the material the cooler is made of can not seal flat
    against th...

    What materials are used in the resistance coil on your heating element ? Maybe a better
    question, what materials are safe to use with a system such as this?I was hoping to build
    something similar. Tha...

    Did you have any problems with leaking? I tried to reproduce it, but it leaks like a sieve
    through the bolt holes. I tried gooping on some hi-temp silicone, and that slowed it, but
    didn't stop it. At ...

    Woohoo - thermodynamics cage fight!!

    Do you own a pump? You could get a few gallons of NONTOXIC antifreeze and circulate that
    through your chiller. If its very cold out, it can get much cooler than water would be able to.
    You could leave...

    Ha - I meant relative. There's another subject that made a quick exit out of my brain after the
    final exam.

  • Posted in thread: Evaporation sensitivity to ambient temp? on 01-18-2008 at 09:43 PM
    I'm many years removed from my engineering classes - will the evaporation rate in a full boil
    be higher or lower at cold ambient temps (assuming equal humidity)? I'm celebrating MLK day by
    brewing a B...
