Options Form

The Options Form fine tunes the acquisition and burner control parameters.

Scan Interval - adjusts how often the measurements are taken. I currently scan once every two seconds.

Probe Resistance - sets the decision value that determines when the wort is in contact with the high and low level probes.

Proportional Heat Groups allow you to adjust the individual burners for the desired performance. For example, if you simply turn off the mash tun heat when it reaches 150 degrees you will find the temperature will continue to rise a few more degrees. Bad news for mashing! Lets take a closer look at the mash heat parameters. All units are in seconds except the resistance.

Mash Proportional Heat Group

The boiler uses a much simpler on/off approach. The heat turns off when the desired temperature is reached and doesn't turn on again until the temperature drops two degrees.
