Well apparently contactors do not like being dropped on concrete. I replaced it this morning and it works as it should. Here is a shot of mine auto-tuning:
Thinking about brewing a DFH 90 minute inspired beer for the first session.
My friend and I ordered all the parts and each built one of these. He brewed a Victory "Hop Devil" for his very first home brew and first brew on the kit. He boiled of .75 gallons over 90 minutes just as you do JRB. He also had ~ 75% efficiency as a total beginner.
I'm looking to brewing on this kit early next week!
