    option one, if the beer that you are brewing is normal or a smaller beer. Check out Mr
    Malty.com for a yeas...

    yes same yeast all batches. If its a low flocculation, you think its not attenuated enough? The
    final gravity was ok. I cant really tell if it is yeasty, the spices cover up of any off
    flavors.

    I am just worried that the extra power will heat up the pot maybe short it out. Is this not
    right? I do not know that much about electricity and circuits ect.ThanksPS everything works
    great otherwise....

    I am building a stirplate in the likes of the cheap and easy stirplate idea that was posted by

    runs at 4.2...

    temp- never...
