A update of sorts. Yesterday when I pulled the temp probe off the side of the fermenter and dropped in the bottom of the box it showed 65. I left in the bottom until this morning. The fridge had cycled on and off through the night. I re attached the probe to the fermenter this a.m. When I...
It is really small. It has a compressor. I pulled the temp sensor off the fermenter yesterday as it was registering 80. The temp in the bottom of the box is a cool 65. My mini fan shipped yesterday, hoping the fan fixes things. This batch should have random flavor.......
So I schlepped on down to lowes and bought the mini fridge for 79.00. plugged it into my ferm chamber and no joy. I did not put a fan in, it is on it's way. It will not cool. As fermentation increased so did the temp. Not horrible but hovering around 70 now. I squireld my hand into the...
If working in the brew haus in bare feet, it is best if you close the valve on the boil kettle prior to transferring wort from the mash tun. Dohhh! Not burnt, but hurt feelings for being a dumb A$$!

Math was never my strong suit, but I will give it a go. Maybe a math major can clean it up for me. lol
Gallons on hand divided by daily consumption over 2 week delay from more beer equals outlaw road trip mandatory. I loaded the truck up and struck out in the face of the covid travel ban for...
It is a 200w ceramic heater, it has tip over and over heat protection built in. Connected to a ink bird controller it is safe. Is it overkill at 200w? prolly, but they are cheap, have a fan. and last for ever.
I just went through this with my kegerator. Find the thermostat knob and divine a way to get at the back of it to expose the wires. Based on how many wires you have back there, installing a quality wire nut and some tape will bypass the thermostat and allow the temp controller to run the show...
So my keggerator went on the fritz again. Went to lowes and no freezers! Read some posts here, got my tools out and hacked the faulty thermostat with a wire nut. Plugged the unit into a ink bird controller, and happy cold beer! Just in time to receive the 10 gallons of APA today.
I do 10 gallon AG once a month. I have been working my way through the greatest hits here on the forum. Some of them I brew repeatedly for a while, others are one and done. I recently had a notion to hop an irish red with 8oz. of hops...... It was a exercise not to be repeated, worst of both...
