Re: Heated Stir Plate Build and STC1000 mod. Pic Heavy.

ah, me too played around with a bench top power supply to get a feeling for the voltage range that would spin the fan without the stirrer bar going daft, 3.3-3.8V worked well, to get the fan to spin need to hit 3.5V but can then turn down the wick and it is happy at lower voltage resulting in a very...

Re: RECIPE PLANNING - What makes a great summer ale?

Re: Heated Stir Plate Build and STC1000 mod. Pic Heavy.

that looks like an asetek fan controller you have there, how low does it go in terms of output ? I have a zalman lying around doing nothing but the 5V lowest output on the zalman is still a very vigorous stirring, if the asetek is lower then that might be the answer, or knocking up something with an...
