I have the same issue. I was thinking about using a plug in timer to control a contactor that would power the panel. Pretty easy build for a 120V 20A system but a little trickier for a bigger system....

The thing I've found with my plate chiller is you need a water hammer type effect and not just a back flush. The turning water on full blast and then off and back on seems to kick out some stuck in...

I have a 4, 5 and a 6 pass with fittings. Not sure where you are at and what shipping would be as they are heavy.

I suppose I could run something like that but then it would just tell me when my SSR is firing or not. That's not really the same as the high and low alarm capabilities. The reason I really care at...

I think the brand of the disposable tank regulator is Liquid Bread but I'm pretty sure it's the same one that all the brew shops carry.

I use the big tank for batches and the disposable one as a loaner for the less fortunate and for starters. One will last way longer but cost more. I'd say Oxygenation is worth it so just go for it...

A few thoughts. If your ground water is warm, chill down in the kettle (whirlpool or immersion) until about 110F. Then use the sump pump to recirculate ice water. Otherwise you'll waste a bunch of...

I have one and don't use it anymore. I didn't see a big bump in flavor/aroma and a whirlpoo/hopstandl is easier and more effective for me.

Ah! Now I get it. I took the 'won't buff out' and the black as it was melted. Thanks for clarifying. I really wasn't getting how this would fry an SSR.
