    First 10 gallon batch tell me your mistake so I don't make it too

    You could make it work with fly but I batch sparge and it was taking me three batches to get to the right volume.

    First 10 gallon batch tell me your mistake so I don't make it too

    I made the jump to ten gallons a few months ago when I started brewing with a friend. The biggest issue I ran into is that unless you are brewing a low gravity beer a 10 gallon mash tun was often not big enough. I ended up retiring my round cooler and upgraded to a larger rectangular cooler...

    eBIAB in action!

    How about the Hood? I've been looking for one for my electric system and have not been very happy with anything I've found so far. BTW your brew space looks great!

    Here's a link to the instructions I used. It's for the iPad but I'm sure you could find the same apps on other platforms or another app that does the same thing. http://whatapalaver.co.uk/2013/12/controlling-raspberry-pi-from-ipad/

    I use Tri-clamp Thermowells and take the probes out every time I wash my kettles. I also have everything on a stainless steal cart so I can wheel it over to my fermentation fridge to runoff into. So, the probes come out for that. I don't know if it matters or not but I also remove the prob...

    Hmmm... Even at 2% and 60 sec. I'm getting a big boil that cycles on and off. Guess it's time I send an email to the builder.

    Okay so I get the duty cycle % but what do you set the duty time to? Everything I've tried has it turning on and off constantly.

    I have very little electrical experience and thought it was pretty easy to do. In the YouTube video he comments on the letters on the plug. They are kind of hard to read because the font is so small but once I figured that out it was a breeze.

    I brewed my first beer, a pale ale, with the Hosehead controller yesterday. Hands down the easiest mash and sparge ever. I do have one question for you RonR. What setting do you use to control your boil? Everything I did resulted in an extremely active boil and I ended up with an evaporation...

    Just geeking out a little. Last night I was able to turn on SSH and load a VNC server on the Raspberry Pi. I also set them up to load when the Raspberry Pi boots up. So now I can run it without a monitor, keyboard, or mouse and just connect with my iPad. Additionally I purchased a Powerline kit...

    I have a 4 prong spa panel in my garage and it works fine. The controller does not come wired so you can wire it any way you want. There are ways to wire it directly although you will get differing opinions on if that is safe or not. You can also get an adapter to go from a 3 prong plug to a 4...
