Thank you HopHouse!
Posted in thread: Beersmith Cooling Loss and BIAB Confusion on 06-11-2014 at 06:55 AM
FWIW I just set the cooling shrinkage to 0% in my equipment profile. I think that the 4%
cooling shrinkage is only useful if you measure your volume while boiling with a sight glass,
kettle markings, ...

I hate to be a naysayer, and I think bubblers are great for volume measurements. However, I
think that you should do some preliminary calcs before you go too far down this road. I don't
think that you...

I am not familiar with the Click PLCs but the ladder logic / relay logic should look something

I'd get one of those maxim one-wire pieces, but they seem to be out of stock everywhere. It
looks like mouser.com has them in stock. They have the right part number but the description
isn't quite ri...

Hey guys, any thoughts on flame rods? Would the "flame diode" thing work for arduino/Rpi? if
not, the thermocouple/1 wire method seems pretty srtaightforward. looked a little further
into flame rect...

In the case of the turkey fryer, it's there to energize a small coil that allows the gas safety
valve to stay open. So, no flame the coil de-energizes, allowing the valve to close, that's why

I think any standard furnace thermocouple could be used to sense the flame. They are rated for
continuous sensing of the pilot flame, so I think they could work for sensing flame from the
burner as we...

In fact, my brinkmann turkey burner came with one as part of the "safety" equipment. ..They are
designed to be exposed to high heat for long periods of time.Where is the thermopile mounted on

I guess a solution would be to go with a hot surface ignitor. I plan to build mine completely
headless, so I wonder if it would be a problem?I like this idea, I might go the hot surface
ignitor if I w...
