can you manually vent steam from AA PC?
    #4233256 - 05/29/05 02:06 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

in the manual it says not to touch the weight until it has de-pressurized, but is this for safety reasons only?
or will it actually hurt the pc?

curious...

The sudden drop in temp and pressure will more than likely cause your jars to crack. Try it and see. You probably won't try again. Just let them cool on their own. I know it sucks letting it cool down when you have 3-4 runs to do.

if u have a valve on it, ive removed the wieght at the first marking, like 2lbs psi? and it blewww hard for 30 secs and slowly stoped. And no harm done, Just dont open in underpressure...havnt done it.. but i wouldnt recommend trying.

From what pressure to what pressure? You mean you take your PC off the stove and release the pressure from 15psi to 0. I played around with mine once. Rattled the rocker when it was at 15 psi. It released a few pounds but I could hear the jars starting to shake and bump into each other. Releasing a few pounds toward the end is one thing. Releasing it for 15 to zero is another. Don't think you will find anyone to recommend that.

if you are cooking agar then removing the weight will cause it to boil violently and maybe even splash out. Grain jars will loose some moisture but shouldn't crack. Just make sure you put the weight back on at 2-5 psi so the vacuum doesn't suck too much shit back in.

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

Hey Tahoe. That was probably what was going on in my case. Water started boiling and jars were bouncing and bumping into each other, quite hard.

If you have the toggle type pressure relief & safety valve. Yes - you can, just moving the toggle from open to closed. Not a good idea to do it fast, as it will shriek/whistle like a banshee from hell.

About the only time I use it (AA 941 Sterilizer), is sometimes in the heat & pressure building process... if I don't check it about every 90 seconds .....if psi builds to around 26/28psi one will start to WHISTLE loud... as it gets close to the  :eek:danger :eek: zone.

I just the toggle with some longer kitchen utensil (toggle is hot) & release PSI down to about 17/18, adjust heat dial down & watch it for a few minutes - to see if it will maintain a steady psi. If not, I adjust heat dial more. If so, I set timer for 2 hours & go on about tinkering.

I don't have to check it very often, as if psi raises close to danger zone, safety toggle will start to release & you will notice it QUICK, as it is a LOUD warning.

The new models - with the rubber over-pressure blow out plug (sounds like shotgun blast - if it ever blows out) the WEIGHT.... I never used. I would guess you could lift weight with BBQ grill tongs - if you wanted to release psi pressure quick.

I don't release psi quick (as that tends to vaporize moisture instantly & F/U the wbs/grain jars moisture content towards the DRY SIDE :mad2:.

Most often, I just let it cool by turning the heat off & let is cool down to about 1 or 2 psi by itself, then trip pressure toggle to release last little bit of pressure.

If you have a AA then you can fit in quite a few jars...

If you have more than you can fit in one...:nonono:

:smirk:

J/k...Mine fits about 5 pints (4quarts)and damn, doing 3-4 runs and waiting for the psi to drop - Blows lol

I'd wait IMO, moisture content is most important - More important than how many jars you do...

100 crappy jars jars isnt better than 50 perfect one..IMO

But good luck, i'm envious :evil:

i have pulled the weight off before right after watching it knock a few times. i do this any time i have more then 4 runs to do. i just set my PC on a baking pan on the table never had a jar crack or any problems with moisture.

once i figured out how to use the damn thing.

but just caz it works for me doesn't mean it will work for you but thats life
