    Brew Boss Systems

    Yup, efficiency wasn't great... Maybe around 60% brewhouse. I mashed with the full volume so grains would be as covered as possible. They were, but the mash was very thick. I squeezed the cofi since i wasn't sparging (maybe too much) and ended up with a little more pre-boil volume than expected...

    Brew Boss Systems

    Yes, all stainless machine screws, washers, and nuts. My calipers say .185 across the threads, looks like that's #10, right?

    Cross posting this in the Facebook group too...hoping for expedited help! Tomorrow will be my first brew day with the Brew-Boss and I am second guessing my calcs for a 5 gallon batch of doppelbock. My system is comprised of a 15 gallon kettle with COFI tube/basket and a steam condenser. My eqpt...

    Brew Boss Systems

    Thanks for that info. If the one I just bought from Darin fails, I may try to build the next. I'm also in the process of building a couple of Thorrak's brewpi-esp8266 controllers for my ferm chamber and keezer (just starting this). Ideally, every probe I have on hand would work on any of the...

    Fermentation Chamber Heating Recommendations

    Well, not as great as I hoped it would be, but maybe that's because I went all in instead of experimenting with only the apple juice and hornindal isolated at the higher end of the suggested ferm temp range. This was my first time with kveik and the thought was to really coax the...

    Fermentation Chamber Heating Recommendations

    I was just thinking the fan is more effective when the air can circulate all around the mats...IDK if it is or not. Seemed like a good idea at the time though.

    Fermentation Chamber Heating Recommendations

    It just happened to be another hard cider...fermented with Safale S-04 and it flocced out really nicely.

    Fermentation Chamber Heating Recommendations

    Yup, me too. I've had 2 of these waterproof seedling mats for about 3 years, and they work great. I think they're about $20 for 2 of them on Amazon. I epoxied some pvc caps to space the mats from the fridge walls and added some plastic clips I had laying around to hold them in place. My basement...

    Brew Boss Systems

    I had a conversation with Darin just over a year ago when I was trying to order and he was out of stock. He's had major difficulties with his supply chain. Particularly, the parts for building controllers. All his vendors were backed up so he couldn't get what he needed for a production run. Not...

    No, sir.

    To follow up on this, Darin replied to my email and besides this probe thing answered a few unrelated questions. He sold me a replacement probe, so it stands to reason that the serial of the ds18b20 doesn't matter..must be read dynamically since he made no mention of program changes, right?

    Brew Boss Systems

    Well ,I guess I'll find out the hard way. When I receive the controller, I'll take the cover off and try to sort out the wiring from the board traces.

    Brew Boss Systems

    That's what Darin told me last year: I don't think emails are getting through to that domain since they suspended operations...hopefully only temporarily. Are the DS18B20 serials married to the controller? How would you replace them when they fail?? I think the serials are mainly for multiple...

    Has anyone with the Brew Boss built their own DS18B20 probe? Just wondering which rings on the jack are ground/vcc/data...

    Wanted WTB Exchilerator Maxx Counterflow Chiller

    Can be either the basic version instead or ready-to-brew...I have the fittings and dial thermometer I can reuse from my old CFC. Looking for delivery to, or pickup in KCMO. Thanks!
