Re: Maintaining Temperature of 1 BBL System

On the other side of this, how long does it take you to cool the boil for pitching?

Maintaining Temperature of 1 BBL System

This question is for folks who have experience brewing on a 1 bbl system or larger. How are you maintaining your mash temperature? If you ramp up your temperature, what process are you using? Are you able to accomplish ramping using RIMS or Herms? Are you finding your mash temperature is more stable...

Re: Faulty unit or faulty user

You might also check what version of internet browser you are running. Not sure about the other issues you are having but the thermometer not displaying could be related to outdated web browsers.

Re: OK, what do I need??

The mash tun is subject to "heat or cool pockets" caused by the grains. I would not use the temperature probe from the mash ...

Re: OK, what do I need??

Don, I use one pound of rice hulls with my beers when I use the RIMS tube. I haven't had any issues with a stuck mash. They are an inexpensive piece of mind. It sounds like you bought the silver colored 120 volt element from home depot. It will be coated black after every beer you brew. You can remo...

Re: OK, what do I need??

From what I remember, halving the voltage does not halve the wattage. If you start with a 3800 element at 240 volts and cut it to 120 volt, you don't have a 1900 watt element. When you halve the voltage you divide the wattage by four. For your case, you are halving the voltage of a 3800 watt element...

Re: Help with WNCE2001 wireless setup

I run mine as described above using the WNCE2001 and have not had an issue as of yet. Possibly could be the router allowing me to do this.
