Posted in thread: SYL-2352 in BK (Manual Mode) on 12-11-2013 at 02:20 PM
The boil will always rise until the proteins are fully denatured and then it settles down. I
don't know of a PID that's going to deal with that.Maybe with a BCS, but other than that I can
think of a c...

What is your objective?A decent boil can be achieved by running in manual mode between 65-75%.
This depends on the volume and element.

How fast can you turn down the element in manual mode? We do 10 gallon batches and are pretty
quick with cutting the flame before it boils over. We are currently in the process of going
electric and w...

Well my rims tube is 1.5 in diameter, seems like its kinda hard to not touch the sides with a
fold back element.I am using a 1.5" RIMS tube with a 2000w 240v foldback element. Works just

Is using a PID for the BK overkill, is there any reason why you would not want to run it in
manual mode?One reason would be to prevent boil overs. PIDs have alarms. If you set the alarm
to go off arou...

An element that short would most definitely be high watt density. But you didn't say the rated
amperage of those elements. I'm going to assume 240v. If you're going to run it at 120v? Also,

I can see Jeffmeh's point. If you do it once, it's cheaper than doing it twice. I can agree
with that. Personally, I use PIDs (see my build link in my sig). Using the SYL-2352 it's very
easy to put it...

For your BK, all you really need is a PWM. The Auber PIDs have manual control built in, but
this is uber easy. You'll have stove like heating element control.I suggest the 40a setup since

This. If anyone has found a 20A inlet receptacle, I'd like to know where.Marinco makes a bunch

What are you using as a controller? Give us a better idea of your overall brewing system, batch
size, 240v or 120v, etc. Do you stir the kettle while heating to a boil?
