No plans yet, right now it's just a paper weight!

The issue is when the controller creeps up to the proper temp, steam pressure is recovering super slowly. You can likely tune the PID (without pressurestat) so it has major overshoot but I didn't want to deal with that. You can have the pressurestat do most of the triggering and the PID take over if its cooling down but still pressurized.
