Pimp My System / Re: Electric control panel
« on: July 11, 2012, 05:50:37 PM »
I have come across a slight issue with the SESTOS temp PID's. From the documentation provided it is not clear on how the alarms are setup. Has anyone had luck in configuring the alarms?

It will probably taste great, and to reproduce you will be on the hunt for flies to add to the next batch

I have been building an all electric brewery, and at this stage the control cabinet is wired up, so I thought I would give people a peek at what it looks like http://youtu.be/42LIz4KQQYM

My Wife put this video together from what she noticed at New Zealand's biggest Beer Festival, Beervana.

The phenomenon of facial hair and beer lovers, is worldwide

with the patch panel, wouldn't you be concerned about the amount of liquid loss, i.e. the shorter the pipe the more beer that doesn't get left behind?

Yeast and Fermentation / Re: Three yeast examples

The acidulated malt helped a lot with the flavor. A previous trial batch was too bitter after the kiwi had fermented. So the sour really helped balance it out. It only needed  3% to the grain bill to balance the flavor. Still needs more body though, not a lot left on the palete.

I use lye but others probably use PBW which I guess might be acid type product.
PBW = alkali

Haha! Yeah I didn't know as I've only ever used sodium hydroxide. It's the soap-maker in me... ;D

what ratio of sodium hydroxide to water do you use? I have a 25kg bag of lye in the garage that my wife uses for soap making

FG results, and tastings
S-04 - 1.018
Clear color, and a crisp taste, the acidulated malt came through well on this batch, quite sharp.

US-05 - 1.016
Clear golden color, least turbidity of them all. sharp taste, clean and fruity

S-23 - 1.018
Cloudy, darkest out of them all, not a lot of flavor coming through, pretty flat

Overall from the first early taste test, the US-05 is the clear winner, as for the beer, it needs more body in it, it is very light, but the kiwifruit notes are present.
