    We want YOUR feedback on our new site, HBT! -- Kegconnection

    I bought four kegs from the new sight yesterday. Surprisingly, they will be here tomorrow. The sight was a pleasure to use and is a big improvement over the previous sight. The mix and match capability of the keg sets is wondeful. I will be back soon.

    STC-1000 Temp contoller stuck on heat!!!

    I am gathering that your temp is reading way lower than actual. I think you should focus on discontinuity in your temp probe first. Make sure you have a good connection with your temp probe wires and terminal strip. Also make sure your temp probe wire is not damaged.

    When do you need a blow off tube

    Thanks everyone I am pitching white labs kolsch into a 1.05 today. Would you consider this a combination to be concerned about? It sounds like i should make a blow off tube standard practice in the future.

    When do you need a blow off tube

    I have been using a 7.9 gallon bucket to ferment five gallon brews. I have always used the standard three piece airlock with good results. As i move to new recipes and yeasts, is there a rule of thumb to know when the fermentation will be aggressive enough to require a blow off tube?

    Simple PWM Stirplate Controller

    I will give this a try. I currently have my stirplate to where it goes slow enough to use. However it does not turn off completely. What is the purpose of sinking both the .1 and 22 mf capacitors from the source to ground?
