    Add a PID on top of a Grainfather S40

    Hi gang, I have recently purchase a grainfather S40 for real cheap. Prior to that, I used a DIY kettle with an Auber EZboil PID. The only thing that I find deceiving with the Grainfather S40 is the temp control (no PID with the S40). I was wondering if I could add my EZboil on top of my S40...

    REX-C100 in Brew in Basket setup overshoots

    I recently moved from a cloth bag for my eBIAB setup to a stainless mash basket. In my last brew day, I noticed the kettle overshoots significantly (more than 5C). I think this might have to do with the basket causing less circulation in the kettle, but I'm not sure. Maybe it's something to do...

    Boil Control for Electric Brewing

    I just switched my homebrew setup from propane to electric (5500 W element in BK and HLT). I previously used an Arduino to control the propane burners for my HLT and BK (combo of 5V relays, 120:24V furnace TX, and furnace gas valve) I am reusing the Arduino because it will keep most of my...
