    Cold crashing the Session NEIPA, and planing out my panel for my electric HLT set up.
    A friend gave me a panel complete with some DIN rail, wiring organizer, fuses busses, a switch, and some terminal connectors.
    I already have the inkbird PID, SSR, thermocouple, and a 240V 4500W sanitary connect element.

    that should work for 115v or your version but make sure you add a magnetic relay for higher voltage to power an element 240v in my case

    Brewed a Blonde Ale today. It was nice not needing as much grain and hops as my typical IPA. Was targeting 1.042 and got 1.044. That’s a good day for a first time brew.

    you use a 115v switch that turns on the 115v input on a magnetic relay that passes 240v to the element

    Latest run of Dirty Bohemian, bottled 10 days ago, has carbed up nicely, labeling and moving to the beer fridge to cold condition.

    I brewed the Northern Brewer John Q. Adams Marblehead Lager recipe last night. It cleared nicely after the boil.

    I reviewed our favorite recipes to date as well as what I have on hand for hops. I ordered bulk grain for the first time. I think I have saved and cleaned enough pool chlorine buckets and lids to store everything safely.

    Getting ready to take FG samples of the 2 Pale Ales I brewed last Thursday. Will be cleaning kegs, faucets & beer lines tomorrow and likely kegging both beers. That'll keep my pipeline going while we get the yard cleaned up and lawns mowed and fertilized.

    Looked into Ibex hops growing system online. Like the concept, didn't like the $800 price tag. Designed something along the same idea, for about $90. Started the build today, I'll finish it tomorrow and post a couple pics.

    I've been fermenting the lager at 53F in the fermenter. I have been using frozen aluminum Budweiser bottles to cool the water in the igloo chiller through the coils. About fourteen or so bottles one third full of ice have been lasting half a day. Specific gravity at thirty six hours is down to 1.032 from an original of 1.051. Cautiously optimistic.
