Should be, yes. You could use a mechanical relay for both as well. With as few cycles as they will see a mechanical relay will hold up fine. You could probably save some cash over SSR's.

AJ,

Just curious, is this enough off vertical to be seen with the naked eye?

I think the SSR's should be in parallel, not series. So take the output of the wall wart and the float switch directly to each SSR. Two individual paths, not a loop.

Not really on the topic, but start tasting! Even a couple times through the mash. You can learn a lot about what is going on with your wort/beer.

Now back to your regularly scheduled program.

It will take a long time. The thermal mass of the inside of the fridge is relatively low. True, it's -5 or whatever in there, but it won't take a lot of heat to pull that temp up. Once the temp in...

Disclaimer -

I have not read Yeast, so if they call it a Forced Fermentation Test in there, I apologize. I'd be surprised if that was the case though.

Forced Fermentation Test is when you pull a small sample (like this) and grossly overpitch it. The point is to be able to determine what the FG will be...

I'd use tap water to ~100 degrees, then switch to pumped ice water.

Grab a cheap pond pump from Harbor Freight (don't forget your 20% off coupon) and you will be set up for under $30 or so.

Yeah, I'd worry about flux core wire, if it were solid like maybe SS Tig wire, you'd have been fine.

There's as many different kinds of welding wire as there are types of beers!

He MIGHT have hurt himself.

Oxygen would just make the match burn up real fast. It will not "explode".
Hydrogen wouldn't have stayed in the jar.

Yeah, Nitrogen is about 5k and Argon is usually around 2-3k. Both are stored as a GAS, not a LIQUID like CO2. They have to run tank pressure way up to get much volume in there.

Even if you don't use the connector end though, it's still a good deal to buy them like that. The plug will run you ~$15 alone. I'd get the cords off eBay...

One worry I have is that it is going to be difficult to tune the PID if you adjust the "power" knob. Say you autotune at 100% power, then tune down to 50% power later. I'm not...

My controller came in a Medium Flat Rate box for $12. That's 35 cents LESS than the walk in cost to ship that box. Online shipping rates are a little less, but not that much.
