I've decided to post my electric brewery because its a little different than anything else out there. My setup is 3000w 120v single element, "Brutus 20" two tier, gravity and one pump system. I took in a lot of info from all the BIAB systems and incorporated them into a batch sparging setup. Instead of installing a 240v breaker I wanted to use a 30A 120v breaker already installed. I found that 3000w 120v water heater elements existed which would be perfect for the 5 gallon batches that I already do. I bought a inline gfci cord and then started piecing the rest together. It's very similar to the 20a 120v systems out there with the exceptions that I used 10g wiring, plugs and outlets rated for 30amps, and extra fuses going to the pid, pump and alarm.
I want to say thanks to everyone that posted there setups for inspiration and guidance, theelectricbrewery.com,, and especially P-J for all those amazing schematics. I don't think I would have ever attempted this without his help.
The stand was custom made for me from my brother in law.
