4L seems to be quite much.
How do you measure the dead space? Everything together with the pump and pipe what is under the lower mesh cover (bottom mesh cover?). Basically I do not think that it matters that much? Only for calculation of the mash in volume and grain ratio calculation - but...
I think the grainfather absorption is around 0.6-0.7 and the beersmith default is 0.96. this will change your sparge volume which will result in less volume after all.
The boil off from different profiles is from 1.6 to 2.9 I can see, which is a big difference :)
Right, so you did it with logic FETs for SDA SCL signals? I think you could skip that and still power the LCD with 5V although 3v3 works also for LCD.
BrewPiLess is working great actually, at the beggining heat and cool is working almost all the time switching on and off to stabilize...
oh ok I know Vito and Brewmaniac and BrewPiLess and I have boards for both using Wemos D1 and also one from robotdyn. Works pretty nice now. There is this dutch guy who is also working on soft for ESP. Do you use I/O extender in your board?
I have for sell some PCBs for ardbir and craftbeerpi whcih I developed and printed. I have only few left and they are not in production or anything, just getting rid of what I have and I will not use anymore.
ArdBir - 12$ shipped worldwide as a letter
small 3.0 - 10$
big 4.1 -...
I think I was posting it here already but it is here:
unfortunately forum is in dutch
but software itself is english and some desc is in english :)
You can find it here:
All you have to do is dowload and flash via Arduino IDE.
Also there is a nice software better than ardbir from netherland guy if you are interested
How SSRs are attached to heatsinks? Is there a space between ssr metal plate and heatsink or you covered it somehow? I am doing a new build and I do not have space for heatsink inside but I am not really shure how I can put it outside that way that all metal plate from SSR will touch heatsink.
OK got it :) well actually I am in Norway now for years and it suppose to be even colder than Poland but it isn't!! We do not even have much snow, only yesterday it covered a little with white dust. I hope it's coming!! :)
