If I have a heated/cooled ferm chamber is that one process or two?
Your heated/cooled ferm chamber would be one process. I previously ran my two kegerators (each w/ a temp probe & set point) plus my ferm chamber (heated & cooled) as one process. Just recently I switched it out to be two processes, only because I mess with the ferm process a bit, but never touch the kegerator temp process.
For a brew day, I use 5 processes. In the BCS, one process can start and stop other processes, so my system flows from one process to the other and sometimes with processes running concurrently.
I start the MLT process, but when I mash in, the BCS then kicks off the HLT processes. When it's time to sparge, the Fly Sparge process is kicked off. After sparging for a bit, the Boil Process is kicked off to start heating wort before sparging is done. Once at a boil, the hop addition process is kicked off to signal when each hop addition should be added - that runs simultaneously with the boil process.
Here are my processes:
- MLT Heat/Hold
- HLT Heat/Hold
- Fly Sparge
- Boil Process
- Hop Additions
There are links in my signature for info on my BCS gui screen where you can see the processes.
