    Widow Maker Black Ale

    How about mash and ferm temps? I'm entering this into Beersmith. The title "BadDeacon's Widowmaker clone". Though I will be using Breiss Midnight Wheat vs the Black.

    Widow Maker Black Ale

    Well? How did this last batch compare? I hadn't thought to try and clone this, but I do enjoy it. The only way I get it is to take the one hour trip over to Wisconsin. Sorry to say the don't distribute to MN.

    Glass carboy with hole on top

    I wonder if the OP is ever coming back to this thread, or brewing for that matter....... Best I can tell, he was last here on sept. 11th. He did say he was busy with life. I'll just be patient and wait for his results.

    Another Temp Control Option? $29CDN

    I thought the same thing but didn't really look to close. If that's the case you can get one of these on eBay for $11-$12 with free shipping. I ordered one the other day. That site is a good source for replacement thermistors though.

    STC 1000 "Ebay" Temperature Controller Build

    One problem you may have is that your diagram shows that your fridge uses a PTC thermistor. The STC-1000 uses a NTC. My understanding is they aren't interchangeable.

    STC-1000 PID Controller

    Your home made thermowell looks great. Here is a link to some probes that should work to replace the one that came with it. Not all on this page will work. The ones labeled 10K ohm would be the ones your looking for as far as I can tell.

    All grain kit vs. extract kit?

    I know many people prefer allgrain, but I've had extract beer that's superior to many of the Allgrains. A member of our local club brews almost exclusively extract. He creates/formulates his own recipes and makes some of the best home brew I've had. I haven't tasted the twang everybody talks...

    Temp Controlled Refrigerator question.

    I was going to suggest a light bulb also. Try turning on the light in your oven. That little bulb (usually around 40w) will heat up the oven over 100*. A paint can heater is in escence an can of some sort over a light bulb connected to a controller. The can create a thermal mass and blocks the...

    Temp control on modern fridge: Is it safe?

    Why not just get a thermometer and play around with the settings until you find what gives you the proper temps? Its not like a freezer where you need a controller to keep it from freezing. I'm assuming you are using it for lagering. I did that with my garage fridge and it worked well. Perhaps...
