I took the time to rework with water and tried the boil again. It seems I should do some research before going willy-nilly. 100% is for getting the bk up to temp then turn it back to 75% for keeping temp up.

So went through very quickly and was awesome. I can't believe how short heating time is. Hence the issue.
Burnt the wert in the bk. burnt like toast, cheap late night pizzas, and a day at the pool. What are most people setting the power to on their pid? I have aub pids running 5500 uld wave...
I agree. It can be at least $100 and on up to full commercial 30k panels.
I started adding up parts and stopped at $1250. It was cool and sad. I'm pretty sure I am close to 2k in the panel. It is exactly what I wanted it to be.
I know you can brew it a lot simpler, but it's more fun brewing...
I started to realize that I tend to over engineer everything. Case and point 1/2" ID counter flow chiller with a 2" cooling hose. It's 36' long. Over kill? No I cool 12 gallons in 7 minutes.
Building a brew panel that is both PID and bcs. Over kill? Nope, I like choices.
What have you over...
