I think I enjoyed the non-phone photography as much as the build! That's gotta be the most perpendicular rig shot I've ever seen. Did you really use a tilt-shift lens to shoot that front...

Bru'n Water predicted 5.41, I ended up at 5.13. What did I do???

There is probably a standard purity assay for lime. In the meantime, add a few drops of acid to your pickling lime. Does it fizz? Where did you get it? Grocery store pickling brand?

It LOOKS to me like you are only using neutral for relay coils, buzzer and pumps. Since I can't see how your total draw anywhere will be enough to warrant more than 14 gauge, I'd say no. If you...

At 1/9th, it's probably time to replace the RO membrane.

The rejection rate depends on many factors... the membrane itself, input pressure, back pressure, water temperature, pH (if it's very...

All the STC-1000 does is switch which power receptacle has power. When the heat light is on, the heat relay is closed, allowing 120v at the heat receptacle. Since you have no heater plugged in,...

Unplug everything and remove the 2 wires from the cooling relay. Is there continuity between the two sides of the cold relay? What is the resistance?

As was pointed out in the Heady Topper thread, malt contributes a lot to the finished product, especially K and Mg. It doesn't necessarily tell you much about what the starting water was like.

Maillard reactions are sped up at higher pH, hence higher pH worts being slightly darker after the boil.

If you're using 3 gallon fermenters, I wouldn't put more than 2.25-2.5 gallons in to begin with.

If my goal were getting 3 gallons into a keg, I'd probably shoot for a 3.5 gallon recipe fermented...

Did you, at any point, try and adjust your pH by adding alkali to the mash (especially slow-to-dissolve chalk)? What all did you add between the mash and end of the boil?

An insulated MLT and/or heating strike water in the BK is a good HERMS solution.

I have to say, there is something elegant about a HERMs only having 2 elements. And only 1 that every touches wort.
