The outlet on the wall in the garage is a standard 50A 4 prong RANGE outlet, no twist lock. I am really not concerned with it coming unplugged during a brew session. At this point I do not intend to use any twist lock outlets on my build... but you may decide to do so on yours.

EDIT: The large 50A and 30A plugs and outlets on my rig fit so tightly that a twist lock would be unnecessary on this build.

I think hes going to have a parts list once its all said and done, but I think he said he was going for a twist outlet.

During each phase of the build there will be a parts list, list of tools required, any helpful tips, photos, and a running cost for the entire project.

Thank you in advance. Another suggestion would be to include a little text on why you went a certain direction (like a design goal or "I did it this way because..."). Having followed the other thread, it is evident that you have thoroughly thought through (wow, enough "ought" words! ) your design and every decision. And if you are ever in the Denver/Boulder area, beers are on me!

I am in Denver on occassion, we stay at the Red Lion downtown... I will keep that in mind, it is nice to get a good brew once in a while when out on a trip!

I will be doing my best to keep this comprehensive, to answer as many possible questions, before they get asked... I will also try to give some insight as to why I chose to do what I chose to do, good idea, I will do that.

I'd be happy to pull out my code book to discus proper electrical safety, wire size issues, code specs anytime. I don't want OSHA shutting you down!

Ha ha, start your own thread for that!

I DID update the OP with some parts, costs, suppliers and tools required for the first phase. When the RIPP gets here, I will roll that out.

My pleasure... keep in mind that if I survive, it does not mean that YOU will. ONE reason I have a MultiMeter now.

I WILL CONTINUE TO UPDATE THE OP WITH PROGRESS, PARTS, PICS, PRICES, SUPPLIERS!
