I've got relief/spunding valves. I'm actually not worried about unexpected failures, but I would like to be able to condition/carb in it. They don't have giant flat lids like the Stout or giant lid...

I'm really leaning toward ordering one of these, but Brewer's Hardware won't say whether they will hold pressure. Looking at them it seems like they would be able to do 15 psi, but I just need to be...

Non-Dairy Creamer?

I haven't tried this yet (I plan to tonight), but I read on one of the soda-extract mfg sites to use non-dairy creamer as a heading agent. I think about a cup per 5 gallons. This was specifically...

The switched side of the SSR, or the side that feeds your element. I just connected the hot lead to the terminal that goes to the element and ran it back to the LED. For my 240V element, I stuck...

Sorry, can't resist another suggestion, as it worked really well for me. Since you have a receptacle for your element, it's a good idea to rig up a light bulb to connect for testing. That way...

I don't see any on that catalog page that would work. Most are momentary, which means they're only on as long as you hold the button. You'd have to add a latching relay to get these to work. You...
