FYI, I am looking to buy a full bag of rye but would be willing to split it in some way with someone. I was thinking for ease maybe go .5 of a bag each but am flexible. I would like .5 a bag.

If interested let me know. I will add it once I find my password for the sheet!

Damn you guys, thinking about jumping into E-brewing. I plan on keeping propane for my main kettle but maybe going to an electric element for my HLT/HERMS system. Evil guys!

Thinking about using one of these to run from the basement to the garage. http://www.backupgenerators.com/Reli...l?feed=Froogle

I have an unused outlet from a dryer port and I think I can make it out there with 40 ft of cord. It would be too much of a PITA to run a circuit out to the garage.

Is your dryer outlet 4 prong? (the cord appears to be.) Is the cable really 10AWG?

If you do a control panel type set up, many of them are designed to use 4 prong (needs to be 10g wire). You need to have 4 wire so you can run 120 for certain hardware like the PIDs while going 240 for the elements.

For the kettles they are 3 wire. i.e. you can use any 30amp rated dryer outlet (any prong configuration). That was why I was saying that if someone wanted to buy that electric kettle I am selling they could simply plug in direct with no controls and get 100% of the element running.

Most people do want some control over the elements power so they build a control panel eventually (even if very rudimentary). However to you can still wire up a pot and plug it in direct for 100% load (just make sure you use the correct GFI circuit for safety.)

You could use that but if you have a 3 prong outlet you likely will have to replace the wire running to that outlet, or run a another wire out. Best practices say to replace the wire with 10/4 romex.

It might not be all that bad. I will bet you it is much cheaper to run 10/4 romex than that cord too.



You know I gotta say it. eBrewing is great. Once you try it, you won't go back.

Sounds good to me (I can't add it because I can't find my password for google docs - will get to it though)

I'll have to check if there are 3 or 4 conductors run to that outlet or not. If not, I'll just make a 3 conductor cord myself and use wall power for any 120V power.

Default Syracuse area buckets?

Hey all -
I was looking at this thread - http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/what...enters-310577/ where in this post - http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/what...ml#post3864453 the person mentions these 11.3 gallon containers: http://www.ultimatepail.com/Catalog/...Container.aspx. Anyway, crusing around on the M&M website, I see that this company in Syracuse is one of their distributers: http://www.bronsteincontainer.com/.

Perhaps a good source of grain containers, especially if we do a group buy?
