Building Your Electric Brewery From Scratch (Complete Guide)
« on: December 04, 2017, 07:50:08 PM »
Fellow brewers,

The last few months I was working on my E-HERMS and control panel brewery build.

More information can be found on my blog.

I hope that this will help some people to make the move and brew electric.

Cheers!

Very nice!

I LOVE the SSR power control. I'm in the middle of converting mine over from 110v to 220v. I am definitely going to incorporate this in my rebuild. Great idea, brother!!  8)

Just so I understand correctly, you're not using a PID on the boil kettle. Just the regulator. I assume you crank it to 100% and then dial back after you get a good boil going?

Right, I use 100% till it boils and dial back to about 70% to keep a good boil.

You can do this on a PID also, just enable manual control.   Normally called 'hand'.
