    Barley crusher fix!

    I agree with that completely.

    Barley crusher fix!

    That's a good point, not only should the frame not pinch the rollers, but the opposing ends should be aligned correctly.

    Barley crusher fix!

    I've had a barley crusher for 4 years and it started having problems all the sudden, it would crush for a second them stop and the only way I could get it to crush again was to bump the free spinning roller with a screwdriver, but then it would stop again. I also found that when I tried to spin...

    So I built my control panel, what do I do next?

    Wow that's one way to find the problem haha!

    Thanks, me too! I'm so happy I bought my parts from Auber also, even though it was past their 90 day return date they still said they would do warranty it and fix it for me, amazing customer service, totally worth the extra $$.

    Yep, my rtd is bad, there was an open loop between one of the red wires and the white wire, and when I used a jumper between both red wire terminals on the pid it started to read the correct temperature. Also verified that all the wires are good.

    I'm going to take a multimeter to all the wires and rtd next before I call Auber, maybe a wire is internally broken or something.

    So I turned it on for the first time and I'm getting an error message, I checked all my rtd connections and made sure sn was set to 21, looks like I might have a bad sensor or pid. :( Any ideas before I call Auber tomorrow?

    BIAB gas mash control or RIMS

    I actually used an old first aid kit as the enclosure.

    BIAB gas mash control or RIMS

    Doug pointed out that I used a pid, not an ez boil like the schematic uses, the only difference for wiring is the ssr terminals are different. In this picture the power in worrying isn't installed yet and the enclosure isn't grounded.

    WOW I missed that! Fortunately the only difference is the ssr terminals are 7&8 not 6&7, probably wouldn't have done anything. Thanks again Doug!

    Thanks, that clears up a lot of questions I had, I'll try all this and see how it goes. Are there any settings that I need to change?

    I just built this, thank you, your schematic helped a lot! Now to figure out how to use it............

    So I built my control panel, what do I do next?

    I just finished wiring up my control panel and now I'm wondering what I should do next to get this thing running. It's a simple 120v rims system that controls a pump and element with an Auber pid and rtd probe. Do I need to calibrate it or set anything up with the pid before trying to fire up...

    Adding burbon and oak technique

    Thanks, I think I'll try my idea and then add a little st at time, or probably dose glasses of it to find out the optimal volume to add.
