    Having trouble.

    I have a Love 16C-3 (relay output) and a Honeywell S87B. I thought I was getting the right SSR but I can not get it to work. When I bridge the input connections on the SSR the burner fires up perfectly so I am guessing it is just the SSR. Can someone throw me a bone here? Thanks.

    Need help picking steel for a brew rig

    I used 3x2x.083 tubing for my 3 tier. I would recommend you not use less than 1.5x1.5x.065. I plan to build a single level from stainless next spring and will use 2x2x.065. Better safe than sorry when it comes to open flames and boiling liquids.

    Is this weld too rusty for beer???

    Need Help with Natural Gas Line

    Those flexible lines are the way to go if you have the cash. One connection at the beginning and one at the end. No multiple joints. They are more expensive but if you have the cash and means are a good idea. If you have a leak you don't have to go ripping through you walls. With those...

    How much liquid do you typically lose in the primary?

    When I brew 10 gallons I always try to put close to 11 into the fermenter. I usually end up perfect when filling two 5 gallon cornys at time of kegging. On a rare occasion I will have a little extra in which I bottle a beer or two to savor after I kick the kegs.

    Who's Gonna Get the latest Utopia?

    The equivalent would be "It's nice to get it once. I bought one a couple years ago. Nice but I do not need to get another.

    RIP Hydrometer #3

    Lost a hydro to a wrench? Lol... Nice. I have had the same one for about 11 years now. I almost just bought a refract. but I have been mentioning it to several family members recently so I might wait to see if I get it as a gift soon. If not I will get one in Jan.

    Fermenator casters

    Anyone else get the casters for their Fermenator? Mine just came in and I am so pleased that I coughed up the cash for them. It is nice to be able to maneuver the fermenter now.

    Cheap copper tubing from local plumbing store!

    If you were living out east then shipping is closer to $12. Never hurts to check all possibilities when buying, especially with tubing as prices are always fluctuating.

    BREWCAST 9am ET 9-22-09

    Pol Do you always let your starter sit unstirred several minutes prior to pitching? I always leave the plate on until right when I pitch to keep everything suspended. Is there a difference or just a preference?

    First Infection Ever...

    I recently tapped a wheat in which I believe I have a bad case of oxidation. I split the batch with a buddy. He bottled and I kegged. His bottles taste great and my keg is (I have decided last night.) undrinkable. It will not carbonate either and I do not know why.
