Re: Stc 1000 bracket

I reckon they're called tabs, I don't know where you'd get spares though

Re: BRIB build

Pics The cord grip should be securing the outer sheath of the cable and not the inner cores, there may be space within the cover, just to push the cable closer to the terminals to allow you to grip the outer sheath https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200514/d878b50fbb5c6588db4b40755b417a17.jpg Sent ...

Re: BRIB build

Polarity between live and neutral wouldn't be an issue regarding the functioning of the heater element, but traditionally it would be wired the following way, in that an electrician would expect the live to be on the right of the female socket as you look at it https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200...

Re: Boiler Power Control

Would this be overkill, you could potentially use it for rims also, by switching via a selector switch between rims and boil kettle, which would change over the digital temperature probe, the element, and pump control via relays? I have its predecessor ardbir for controlling a biab set up, and its h...

Re: Electric HERMS build

Again, I cant say thanks enough for all your help guys! I've started cutting the tops of the kegs and welded up a good few 1/2" bsp sockets for the inlet and outlet valves. Drilled out some of the ports and fitted a Tri clamp element to the HLT. The hardest thing now is having to wait for some more...

Re: Electric HERMS build

The LWDs work fine too. Regarding pumps the chuggers are great. Also look at the Blichmanns.

Re: Pump Fixings

I installed a similar setup on my chugger pump, in practice I didn't need it, as once I opened the feed valve to the pump and the delivery route was open, it flooded the pump, and there was no need to prime the pump, I had also though that it would be a handy sample point, but ended up dipping a cup...

We're they for the outlets of the vessels, with an option for a thermometer / thermowell?

Re: Corny carbonation problems

Without meaning to get into an argument, it does, I've had to do this it twice before with overcarbed kegs Have a look at this video, jump to 7 minutes https://youtu.be/xk79UYGmAk8 The liquid disconnect isn't reversible but the gas disconnect is.

Re: Corny carbonation problems

If you lift the relief valve to remove any pressure in the keg and then apply a few bursts of co2 to the liquid post, (the gas disconnect fits the liquid post) , with the relief valve on the lid of the keg open, it will act like a stripping column and the co2 traveling up through the beer will strip...
