    How did this turn out? I would like to try this if it was decent. I'm also an extract brewer.

    Regarding point # 2 (a very valid point), has anyone ever tried encapsulating the controller in
    some type of spray foam? Does anyone know if there is a spray foam thats safe to use on exposed
    110v AC?...

    New on HB talk. Does anyone ever do group buys on carboys?? I think it can be done. Or is there
    another preferred fermentation method that is easier to come by and affordable??

    Ok, so the kit says 6 weeks fermentation, and 2 weeks bottle conditioning. So 3 to 4 in
    primary, then to secondary for "bulk aging" and "clarifying." Two questions:Will the yeast

    I finished!! Got rid of the spacer on the fan and just epoxied the magnets to the fan hub. Even

    washer. Runs ...

    You should probably wait at least two weeks before transferring. I usually wait three. The
    typical rule of thumb is bigger the beer, the longer you should age it (unless it's a wheat or
    IPA). It will ...

    I have done very similar observations and have similar results to what you find. I also
    surprised that there is this sort of temp gradients, which is why I was asking about some sort
    of measurement er...

    I am working under assumption that first 7 days is most important for active temperature
    control...with the insulated probe. After that I think the heat being added from fermentation
    slows down and as...

    My Belgian Dubbel extract kit (1.060) just went into the fermentor last night. This my biggest
    beer ever, first with a stirred starter, first with yeast nutrient and first with oxygenation.
    ( can you ...

    I have the parts, and I was reading a thread that said to use a spacer and washer... Well, I
    couldn't balance it very well. Any tips for balancing/ centering the spacer, washer, and
