  • Been brewing about six years, started with the LHBS kit like everyone else before quickly moving to all grain.

Not brewing as much the past year and a half or so, since am trying (badly) to lose some of the weight I've put on the past couple of years...

    Wow those pfets are small I'll need to find a way to hold those and solder it in place!Yeah, I
    took one look at those solder jobs with those myself and said "bugger that" and went with the
    PNP transis...

    Miki, I actually had the same issue. Have three ports in mine (third not needed, dunno why) and
    I included a sensor in the box itself to act as "room". Room worked without issue, as it did
    when beer O...

    THREAD NECROMANCY ALERT! So been on hiatus for some time, and still running 1.5. Be happy to
    upgrade to 2.0, but how on earth do you get the upgrade version? (I only see the full version
    available) Wa...

    Nothing wrong with that at all! In fact, even though I went an ordered a sight glass, and the
    other parts from Derrin to basically make a Morebeer harvester, I also ordered a pack of lids
    from Ecojarz...

    The nice thing about the mason jar approach is that once you harvest, just swap the lid and
    done. I suppose using the sight glass option (ala Morebeer's one) you can just pour it into a
    cleaned and sa...

    Of course the other option is to use a sanitary sight glass. Which are normally really bloody
    expensive, but can be had on ebay rather cheap:

    Custom plexiglass case??? Who made that?I designed it (well, was able to get the EPS files from
    the guy who did the official BrewPi case so used his joining system), and then had a company
    here in the...

    Bow-chicka-wow-wow...After much wrangling, finagling, shenanigans, and all sorts of other
    psychosis, mine is finally up and running. Snagged a dual volt buck converter that outputs 5v
    and 12v from eba...

    Should be evident what's going on, but the bottom line is the cathodes are either grounded or
    connected to the same AVR IO signals that switch the relay channels...hth!Cheers!It does. Works
    like a cha...

    trippr, I'm still confussed and discombobulated by the cool/heat LEDs. If the anodes are tied
    to the 5V rail via the resistors, (and the cathodes to ground), then aren't the LEDs going to
