    eBIAB vs Cooler Mash Tun Setup

    So I recently picked up a 10 gallon electric fired brew kettle with controller. I was originally thinking I just wanted to go electric for the ease of operation and precise control. But now that I added the eKettle to my setup, and I have learned a lot more, I am kind of torn on what I want to...

    Element Firing Light

    Can anyone show a video or a pic of an element firing lamp on their brew controller? I understand the importance of having a separate firing lamp, but I am trying to build a compact controller and space is at a premium, so I would like to see a functioning "element firing light" if it's...

    Rebuilding Electric Brew Controller Questions

    I am redoing my single element brew controller. I have one 5500w 240v element. I want to use a single PID controller (Most likely Auber EzBoil) and I want to have 2 120v outlets controlled by switch. My thoughts are to have one selector switch to power on the whole box. Another selector...

    Control Panel Selector Switches and Indicator Light Supply

    What brand or where can I order the selector switches and LED indicator lights to build a control panel? I am trying to build a 240v single element, single pump and aux control panel. I have a working control panel now that is too large for what I need. Just trying to reconfigure it for a...

    Difference between Mypin TA4 Digital Adjuster and Temperature Controller

    I picked up an electric brew kettle recently, and the guy threw in the controller box with it. It has two PID's, but only uses one for the 240v 5500 watt element, the other is unused. One of the PID's says Digital Adjuster and the other says Temperature Controller. Both are Mypin TA4 model...

    High Gravity Brewing vs Brew Boss vs Another Electric Brewing Setup

    I have really wanted to upgrade to eBIAB, or another all grain brewing system for the ease of operation. It seems that both of these systems have been steadily evolving, and now I am ready to pull the trigger on something. Both systems are somewhat in my budget, but I wanted to get some input...

    Mexican Cerveza Kit Brewed, Fermentation Advice....

    I brewed a Mexican Cerveza Kit. It was an LME kit with steeped grains for a little flavor and color. I followed the directions and ended up with an OG of 1.046. I checked the SG 12 days later and it was at 1.022, at day 15 now I am at 1.020. Should I just let it remain in the primary for a...

    eKettle: recirculating vs. non-recirculating

    I am limited on searching here at work, so I'll just ask the question. What are the differences between having a recirculating system as opposed to just having the heating element in the brew kettle? My objective is to build an electric HLT with PID control for my 3 vessel system. Or possibly...

    Just Brewed My First Batch... A Mexican Cerveza

    Well, let me start out by saying, I thought I had it down.... Until I started. I was a nervous wreck, with the timer going and getting hop additions ready, trying to sanitize everything, trying to remember everything. But HOPEFULLY, I'll have something to drink here in a few weeks!! I did an...

    Just Getting Started..... (Equipment and Keezer)

    I have been researching and getting ready to get my first batch going. I have been working a lot, but I'm finally off. I have been collecting equipment and setting up my keezer. I had a vision of what keezer I wanted to build when I saw it on one of the forums, and a couple of days later, I...
