    Guten 40lt programming guide

    I’ve just hooked a grainfather control box onto my Guten works a treat and you can mount it any you like (I’ve got mine mounted on my keeper which is next to the Guten when I brew) Cheaper than the smartPID and a hell of a lot easier to alter the wiring (just have to cut the pump power and...

    Guten 40lt programming guide

    About the only benefit that I can see with the smartPID is that it’s wifi The advantage with the gf is that it is cabled (have to lengthen the probe wires) and it has an angled screen Wifi would have been nice but the Bluetooth will still work for me as I don’t go far from the brewery when I’m...

    I love the snub with the floating dip tube (weighted) I only get about 1-2 Lt of trunk/hop matter in the bottom (depending on the amount of hops) The narrow opening on the top was purposefully done to stop hands going in and scratching the inside. Just clean with a bucket blaster and KK’s abc...
