If you are seeing large deltas in you mash temperature based on location of the probe then I
think you should try to understand why there is such a large discrepancy and fix it.+1 on that.
Not sure if...

I'm not sure I really see the need. Seems to me for repeatability and consistency you would
want to take the temp reading at a consistent spot each time and work back from there. With
averaging, you c...

I haven't found one panel that is alike in all my searching. It's really interesting how unique
they all seem to be. So the PWM function controls the current level to the element, it's not
just on or ...

I'm planning on running the element of a 20A kitchen GFCI outlet so no worries there. It's one

Yes, you will still need SSR's. The outputs on the BCS simply control the on/off of the SSR.

Posted in thread: Options for 55 gallon mash tun? on 01-31-2013 at 07:38 AM
I have the Blichmann 55 gal with false bottom for my mash tun and love it. I direct fire with a
23-tip natural gas burner and manage it with a BCS-460. I've done very light pale colored beers
in it an...

Hmm 72 percent. I've been getting 85 to 90 on 10 gallon batches with fly sparging. Is the
reason for the low efficiency because the mash tun was too full to properly fly sparge?Yes, it
was a club brew...
Posted in thread: 55 gallon Boilermaker mash tun on 11-13-2012 at 03:19 PM
holy crap. You still manage decent efficiency like that? I take it you drain and fly sparge or

sparge, and I do...
