Hey all, I am wanting to go all electric soon and am looking at getting a 25 gallon kettle that will be electric fired with 5500W element, and also building an electric HLT HERMS setup.
I am a CNC machinist and am looking for someone who may want to trade my machining work for their electrical expertise. Perhaps I can make you some cold plates for a TEC conical, or whatever you may need. If you can dream it up, I can usually make it. In return, I am looking for someone who either has, or can make a control unit with two PIDs(one for each element) with SSRs and heatsinks(Like a WAY scaled down Kal clone). Basically, I don't have great electrical knowledge and don't really have time to learn a whole new discipline. I would rather trade my expertise for someone else's expertise and that way we are both helped out. I want to be able to basically plug everything in to a 30 amp 220 dryer outlet and hook up the probes and be brewing. I will make all the kettle mods and have my welding department weld fitting on the kettles. I am planning on using these for the elements to go into the kettle rather than a weldless bulkhead type fitting.
Let me know if anyone is interested in a trade.
Also, if this is in the wrong place I apologize.
