I seen that, and it is awesome information for a beginner like me on how to wire the Auber PID. At based on what I have been able to learn so far, I think that Auber PIDs are the way I am going to go. All I was saying was that there wasn't a list of recommended brands and models to decide between. Thanks for the advice, I think I am going to go with it.

It's the Auber Instruments SYL-2352 PID controller I recommend.

You'll have 2 30 amp receptacles that will never be used, just sayin. I suppose you could brew and have light saber wars with two stick welders, at the same time.

I am planning to have two 30 amp circuits with two receptacles each. If I run two 5500 watt elements in a single kettle I will cross connect so that I only draw 30 amps from each circuit. I don't think I'll ever run two kettles at once. If I do, then I'll be limited to 5500 watts per kettle. Maybe it's inexperience and ignorance, But I can't imagine a situation where I have too much power. If I do, I can always dial it down a few notches.
