    Just tried the diode...used an epoxy rectifier diode rated 200PIV and 3amps. Said it could
    handle a 300a surge. Crimped it to the wire with a butt connector on both sides.Unfortunately
    absolutely no c...

    Thx so much for the response. I don't have any experience with diodes. I noticed in your post
    that you soldered yours. Any options you can think of that don't require soldering?I'm pretty
    novice and d...

    I built the attached wiring schematic and it seems to be working as planned (no field test
    yet), except for one small problem.For the case where the pump button is in NO position which
    means that the ...

    I love to tinker with my brew set-up, but I am not the type who has every tool, saw, etc... to
    build stuff.I eventually stumbled upon a picture of an angle iron brewstand and thought,
    "that's what I n...

    What does it say about me that even your spreadsheet is too complicated for me to
    understand?Yeah, makes much more sense to the creator. Here are some instructions[*]List out
    the items that you are go...

    I have been adding a RIMS tube to my 3-tier gravity system which means including a pump. Due to
    the increased pressure I want to make sure I have solid clamping. Don't want to have to remove
    all the c...

    I would NEVER EVER.... wait... NEVER put a valve after a RIMS heater. If you have a temp
    control malfuction, you create a steam pressure pipe bomb.Hmm, that sounds like some pretty
    blatant common sens...

    jm43654, Thx so much for the feedback. I would have to put the toolbox that the pump is
    embedded into on the edge of a table or hang it in the air in order to allow the inlet to come
    in from below. Th...

    Thanks Bobby. My planned design is pump -> RIMS tube -> ball valve -> next vessel. I had read
    on here somewhere that it was better to put the ball valve after the heater. I think it was to
    make sure y...

    Been working on a RIMS tube addition to my 10gallon gravity system. Purchased a chugger pump to
    drive the liquid through the tube during mash re-circ and also to hit fly-sparge temp. Using
    all 1/2" qu...
