  • Got the "affliction" in the spring of 2011. And I've been slowing "inoculating" everyone I can.
  • Started brewing with a friend who had the same idea at the same exact time in July 2011. We went in almost full bore with a Partial-AG utilizing BIAB. We brewed a Double Chocolate Stout that came out pretty good if I do say so myself. I'm currently getting parts for an electric two vessel setup using a Keg and 10g pot. We just re-made our first recipe in July 2012 with the Chocolate stout all grain utilizing BIAB and cold sparge techniques. We hit our gravity exactly at 1075.
  • Chicoffee Stout, Dunkin Dunkel, New English ESB
  • BierMunchers Centennial Blonde, BierMunchers OktoberFast, Bitter Blonde (or "The X", too many hops so little beer), Irene's Windy Stout, Double Chocolate Stout, Irish Red, Vienna Moteuka SMaSH, Ordinary Bitter (an ESB w messed up Eff; placed 7th overall Sam's HB comp), Third Flight Pale Ale (exclusively Apollo hop bursted),

    Love that blog! I agree that a naan would work well, I use the Cooks Illustrated recipe. It's a
    little easier to make, you get a cast iron pan smoking hot, give a couple spritzes of water,
    slap the br...

    Yes the AGPtek pids are mypins or vice versa... You know that...Good point to bring it up. BUT
    they do (or did) say MYPIN right on the front even when represented/ sold under the other brand
    name at l...

    Ok, here's my interpretation of what you asked for. Actuating the SW4 switch energizes the R30A
    mini power relay to enable 240V output, but only when plugged into a 240V outlet. When plugged
    into a 12...

    Are you talking to me Audio w your last paragraph? I bought my mypin as labeled agptek from
    newegg. So it could have been a clone of a clone :-) anyways, the point of the thread is for
    those w the ink...

    The TA4 I have does not do F although I realize mypin has a device with F readout. I have an
    ITC-308 and like it a lot, so I figured I'd like using the PID. And actually like the 106VH and
    itsits menu...

    When should we be expecting a hardware release? Looking forward to rest and review :-)

    Decided on the Inkbird just because, doesn't mean its bad or worse. I have a TA4 but buttons
    are odd and inconsistent. And this one has F display rather than C on my TA4.
