Default My electric brew room

I've been using this room as my brew room for about a year and It's worked great so far.Finally got it the way i want it.I'm feeding two 120v elements from a dryer circuit with both elements on switches,i love this setup being able to brew year round indoors is the only way!.Certainly not as fancy as some set ups here but it does great for my extract brewing.

Is that room normally dark? If not, shouldn't you have those carboys covered to keep the light out?

Clifton,What would you like pics of?...It's pretty much all there.A dryer circuit feeds those two boxes which feed my two elements.

I can't tell from the pics, but is the utility sink hooked into your hose plumbing, or do you "mcguyver" some kind of connection? Just curious- I'm working on an all electric basement brewery, but our plumbing is cast iron. i dont want to crack into it.
Are the elements mounted in the keggle, or did you go with heatsticks?

Pictures of your elements, mounting, etc. is what I was asking for. BTW, you really should have that on a ground faulted circuit (just for safety).

Nice. I'm always interested in how folks mount/encase their elements. I like that design.....it's probably better than a box!

Nice job! What size elements are those? Do you fire both to get to boil and then kill one for a slow rolling boil? I like the simplicity of it.
