Here are recipes from others  . It looks as if you like porters and blonde ales so stick with them because you'll enjoy them. Alts might be a good fit too. Welcome to the world of homebrew.

You can always sub 1gallon with an 8lb bag of ice. It will get you closer to the 140 temp.

Great article. Like the keep it simple and fun otherwise its work approach.

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.

Equipment and Software / Re: Fill a chest freezer with water
« on: August 29, 2014, 05:10:23 AM »
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.
