    Shipstones Crew

    I like the part of the label that says "the delicate flavours of green bullet and super alpha hops" Delicate as a smacked arse.

    Question For The Fridgy's

    No real need to pulse it if it's been upright for a couple of hrs. its had plenty of time to drain the oil back into the sump.

    Dryer Motor

    BTW the micro switch will be a centrifugal switch for dropping off the start windings when it gets up to speed. either that or a TOL

    Increasing Fridge Size By Removing Barrier?

    if its a frost free jobby then you're asking for trouble. If is a cyclic defrost then you "should" be ok. Add appropriate disclaimer here.

    Outrageous Grain Prices

    Admittedly his yeasts are a bit exxy but you can't complain when you buy 500g of a variety of hop for $28 that no one in the country had at the time (Amarillo last year). Also less than 60 for a full sack of weyermann pils malt is pretty good. Add this to the knowledge and good service he has...

    Freezer Conversion Issues

    I remember discussions about the tempmaster, it wasn't to do with the hysteresis but an imbalance in the triac. i think this is it

    Freezer Conversion Issues

    How long is the off cycle? Most modern fridges have a solid state start relay and needs a few minutes to cool down or else it just keeps trying to start with only the run windings energised which will keep tripping the thermal overload. How old is the freezer? Is it electronic or electric...
