I'm heating some water now, finally, and in auto tune it has overshot the temp by like 20 degrees and keeps rising. Is this how everybody else's has been? Does it eventually come back down?

It's been a while but yes I think your fine. The auto tune is trying to figure out who it is and how much power it has let it do its thing.

Make sure its in auto mode. If you try to autotune in manual mode it just keeps going up

P-J Thanks again for your continuous help with the thread!

I am in the process of making my 2.5 gal eBIAB system similar to the one in this thread with just a few minor changes being A. 2000W element (as opposed to 1650W) and B. March pump (instead of 12V pump). With that said I am worried about Amp rating. I recently just had a 20A GFCI outlet installed that is on a 20A breaker by itself (dedicated brewing breaker) and wired using 12-3 romex. I would like to run everything off of the single outlet but I am a bit concerned about the amp rating and continuous load rules of NEC. My anticipated brew day time and current draw is bellow. In your humble opinion do you believe this will be okay or should I move the March pump to its own power source?

Heat strike water + PID (2000W element - 16.7A) - 30 min (17.7A total)
Recirculate mash + PID (2000W Element - 16.7A on/off controlled by PID, March pump 1.4A) - 1 Hr (19A total)
Boil + PID (2000W element - 16.7 A) - 1 Hr (17.7A total)
Chill - (March pump 1.4A) - 30 min (1.4A total)

As you can see there will be time when the element (16.7A) and pump (1.4A) will be running at the same time and with the little bit of draw from the PID, push button switches and PC fan (~1A), I will be running at 19A which is 95% of the rating. However There will only be about 30 min max at which everything will be running continuous operation. Do you recommend I move the pump to its a separate outlet so as to not push the limits of the wiring?

Thanks again for your help

You will be A-Ok as is. IMHO - No problem.

The PID will draw less than 0.1A. The pump will draw less than you think (under 1A when running).

Ok, Now down to the real issue: The NEC rule does not apply to you.!!! It applies to the designing and installing electrical technicians. Additionally, you have a single outlet fed directly from a dedicated breaker and circuit. Even with this particular case the NEC 'rule' does not apply to the designing and installing electrician. It is a dedicated circuit. Ball game is over with no worries what so ever. Go for it and do not worry about all the dug up sudo issues mentioned everywhere.

I hope this makes sense and helps you.

Question to everyone using this setup right now:

When boiling your wort what do you have the PID set to?
