I wired extension leads from my controller, which gives you more options, e.g. adding double sockets so 12v adapter can be easily incorporated. Also I ordered from the German Amazon site so the heater had a Euro plug :wink: Although that's probably obvious.

In Australia there is a product called Tricleanium. It's 100%TSP.

Got a mail from Niels, washing with dish washing liquid or soaking with a dishwasher tablet followed by a soak in PBW will do.

How are you going to control the fermentation temp?

John


It's 37 cm diameter so it fits to regular cooler where you can control the temperature with STC-1000 or BrewPi.
I have a 50 l stainless flat bottom fermenter in my 354 L Electrolux cooler.
I make my own copper/ss chillers (immersion) - 20l & 50l and counterflow (cfc)

Going to the pub tonight to see a man about a couple of coke fridges. I already have the stc1000 and a reptile heated wire is on its way from DE. I plan to circulate the air with an in line fan I had been using to extract the steam when brewing in my bathroom.

I had to read "coke fridges" twice as my first thought was: "Why would he deal with a shady guy that stores his cocaine in fridges?" :)

What is he asking for the fridges? I see them sometimes on second hand websites, but these type of fridges have high asking prices compared to "normal" fridges.

I know but I have the in line one sitting around and it runs off 220v so I don't need to mess about with adaptors.
