Interesting. Mine is at the outlet of the RIMS Tube.

My main concern is that the PID doesn't seem to start backing off on firing when it reaches the set temperature. I would think it would slow...

Maybe?

Been doing some more reading and I'm wondering if you have to wait until the temperature of the probe equalizes before turning on the PID.

When I first dough in and start recirculating it takes...

PID keeps overshooting

Hi everyone,

I'm wondering if there's anything left to try to get this PID to work properly. I've autotuned many times, played with some of the values, and even autotuned with a mash tun full of...

As far as the chlorine goes, you can get a filter to remove chlorine. I use an RV filter that's rate NSF since I'm using a hose to fill mine.

How do you have this wired?

You need wire the PID SSR outputs ( + and -) to the corresponding control inputs on the SSR. Then you send one hot wire to position 1 of the SSR. On the output side...

Here's mine

I used an inline fan at 720 cfm. I think it was $90 at the time from some hydroponics store. Though I'm undoubtedly now on some list of potential "growers."

Sounds like some people have good...

I also have a kitchen timer. It's magnetized and I just stick it on the keezer I use for a fermentation chamber. I think it was $25. Works great and I don't think it really changes the aesthetics...

I recently figured out that my PID has a default autotune offset of 10 degrees. Had to go into the menu and set the atdu offset to zero. After autotuning, my PID was dialed in.

Could be your PID...

I think I did note in this thread that you were against immersing elements in the wort. But if you do reconsider this route, all you would need to do for the boil is size the wattage correctly for...

Have to agree. If it's tripping the gfci it's because moisture is getting in.

I made three heat sticks when I got started electric brewing and mine lasted about six or eight months before one of...

What's your batch size? I suppose with a 2000 watt element you can do a boil of five gallons if the outlet you are talking about is 20 amps. Many "normal" household outlets are 15 amps. You'll...

Interesting project. I'm curious to see how well it works in practice. Are you planning to have one of the PIDs off to maintain temps and use both in manual mode to ramp temps?

PID Autotune Offset

I recently figured out something about my PID that allowed me to autotune it much more precisely. I'm not sure if every PID has this feature, but if, like me, your PID tended to overshoot a degree...

Looks like old knob and tube wiring. When we bought our house (1920's bungalow) nearly all of it was knob and tube. We spent about $8600 getting it replaced when we redid our attic.
