    Kegging Setups

    not a fix but until you work it out why not keep a sponge handy, stick it over the end of the tap when you do the first pull to absorb the first spray, rinse it out with some hot water and should be ok temporary fix to spraying your walls?

    Kegging Setups

    Nosco, very nice setup, great idea with the reg after the first manifold, was it easy to get it on there - what adapter did you need?

    Kegging Setups

    housecat that is an awesome setup, looks very pro! one thing, the vent down the bottom right side of the freezer, does this have any airflow past it when the unit is back in against the wall? if it's anything like the chest freezer I have the compressor sits in there and needs reasonable airflow...

    Kegging Setups

    Nice video, don't think the wife would let me convert our Aldi freezer though haha - can always dream... If the STC wiring Is 240 Volt you might want to use double insulated wiring (if it isn't).

    What you drink when you can't drink what you want to drink,

    I've said many times the standard wedding drinks we were offered for ours (those you mention) is like choosing between dog piss or cats piss.... We paid a bit extra and got boags draught which I quite enjoyed in my tight living days, was a tight budget for the wedding and couldn't afford...

    Arduino Development Thread

    There's pros and cons for both types, obviously SSRs don't wear out, but being an electronic part they can still fail and can typically fail ON, they are also susceptible to mains voltage spikes although on a domestic supply these are less likely. Mechanical relays wear out and contacts can...

    Arduino Development Thread

    You won't be needing a heatsink as they are mechanical relays not Solid State Relays (SSR), what's the end application for them? If it is turning a heating element on and off you might want to check the rated number of switching actions for the relays. Looks like 100,000 on the smaller ones...

    Frozen Kegs

    I froze either my first or second keg of beer when I bumped the dial in the fridge, thawed it and tasted great, finished it in 2 weeks, got better over the 2 weeks, think I could ever replicate that beer again? No chance haha

    Recirculating Single Vessel Breweries

    You could use the STC1000 to switch a two pole relay that would have each supply coming in and then out to each element, then they would both be controlled and using your two circuits, would need a sparky to do it but any industrial electrician could do it, shouldnt cost much...

    I would imagine another plus for a timber collar is not flexing, the metal sheet on a freezer might

    Show us your brewrig

    did you have the keg filled with water? just wondering how people prevent the slag from sticking inside and ruining the finish? probably answered somewhere but just popped into my head... derp

    Arduino Development Thread

    Long time stalker in the Arduino thread... I just picked up an etherten a couple of weeks ago and got it talking on my lan the other night which is more than I could do with the cheap evilbay ardiuno and ethernet shield I was banging my head against a wall with... am I missing something...

    Bulk Buy - Little Brown Pumps

    Couriers throw things around like you wouldn't believe, always have and always will, if something is marked fragile it's almost like a challenge to break whatever is in the package...

    Bulk Buy - Little Brown Pumps

    they are so low in power rating you should be able to run both, depends on your element rating and if anything else is on that circuit in your house I guess, worst case the 24V model uses 19.2 Watts. "Using MR16 / MR11 LEDs light bulbs with this LED driver instead of an existing Low Voltage...
