    Amp/volt meter wiring

    What I did with a similar powermeter was wire it to the incoming power source after the power switch of the control panel, and connecting the CT to it (the CT is a Cylinder like Current Transformer which read the current in a Line. Chose L1 (Red one).

    Ontario/Québec Hop growers and breeders

    I have used some Centennial like hops that my brother gave me (it was homegrown by his step brother). I used the buds after it was frozen for about 8 months. I used it in my attempt to the cream ale of the tricrops from Biermuncher. It tastes amazing. I'd be interested by some hops to brew...

    PID Temps fluctuating a lot

    I have had sort of the same problem and I have fixed it by replacing the probes wiring (I was using SS brainded cables included with the RTD), as I found out that the problem was the original connectors were badly wired (factory connection) and the SS braiding was shorting the rtd signal.

    Electric newb - venturing into a 30a HERMS

    From what i'm calculating you have a potential of 10kw @ 240v which could suck in 41,6Amps. So I guess that your pumps don't use the rest of the unused load (in addition to the control system load) so i could be tripping from some temporary overload. But I can't be sure of it. Also can you show...

    Cream Ale Cream of Three Crops (Cream Ale)

    Yep you just found it, I made about 10 Gallons of this (bottled 36Liters) for 45$ (ingredients only). But it includes that I used 16 pounds of Pale 2-row (worth 48$ for a 25Kg bag), 2,2 pounds of flaked corn (worth 8$) and 2,2 pounds of minute rice (worth 7$). I could have used half of...

    Help: cream of 3 crops - US-05

    I will take a sample in my fermenters this week, I have brewed this 3 crops 2 weeks ago, so i'm most likely gonna bottle up in 2 weeks just to be sure and let it sit in bottles for 2 other weeks. I have rehydrated the US-05 before use. It is fermenting between 66-68F though. i hope it is good ^^...

    Cream Ale Cream of Three Crops (Cream Ale)

    Yeah I changed my minds when putting in the corn/instant rice. I was supposed to put in half a Kilo of both but i dumped a Kilo each :p I wanted it have some kick, but be smooth. I have used some home grown Hops my brother gave me (2 oz.) Boiled 90 min. mashed 75 min. @ 153 F.
