It's a great deal - IF - it will fit in your breaker panel - OR - you can rig it up in another brewer control panel.

If you cannot do that, you will be throwing your money away.
IMHO

Come on, its "the hard to find combination GFI and circuit breaker combination" AND its "guaranteed perfect." What could be fishy about that.

+1 to CanadianNorth.

This'll get mounted to my brew stand (not built yet), powered by a heavy duty cord going to a standard 220v receptacle. That way, it's portable (somewhat).
