Nice build. Jealous of your setup.

Had no problem either. Are you trying to find old issues? If you let current issue open in the upper left corner  the folder lets you get older issues. If not contact : they can help.

Pimp My System / Re: Build Your Own Temp Controller
« on: September 11, 2014, 06:27:55 AM »

The instructions on this say to wire black to 1, 5 & 6 but the diagram says 1,5 & 7.  You may want to fix that.

Perfect timing on this since I just bought one of these temp controllers a couple weeks ago.  Thanks!

Good catch. I updated the directions to be inline with diagram.

Yeah, and it looks like the white wire for connection #2, and the upper outlet should actually go to the white wires' orange connector. The internal relay is good for 10A but larger freezers can draw 12+A on spooling up.  When I build my second controller I bought a couple of 25A solid state relays that I drive with the TC.

I hadn't seen anything about this in my research. Are you saying just go from STC-1000 connection #2 to the orange wire connector instead of going into the outlet? Where do the solid state relays come into play?

Edit: Found this pic from someone who gutted the STC-1000, which I think shows that the relay is rated to 15A

I think he means from from the outlet to the plug. Because you made 2 powers go to the outlet. Hopefully rjharper will verify.

There are a few recipes in a zymurgy issue not to far back.

I believe this was in a zymurgy gadget issue. Where they made a chest freezer into a glycol chiller. Go for it and post results. Edit **** found in November / December 2009 issue in conical ferment chamber.

The only thing I would be concerned with is losing heat in that size container. Otherwise I think as the others have said.

Just a thought but will your boil kettle fit in your cooling chamber then one less transfer and one less thing to clean.

If you look at the resistor the color bands on it will tell you what it is. From what I see orange black orange and possibly one more band.

All Grain Brewing / Re: BIAB Techniques for Efficiency & Flavor

I don't think the dunk sparge will work because of the temp. If your in the 148-157 your going to get more from your grains. At 168 your already past conversion temp and at the rinse temp. The squeezed method I've done and didn't see a problem but others might have.
