    I've been dreaming of V2 for months now. I've got all the parts on hand or in the mail - can't
    wait to start hacking it together!

    5500 pulls 22-23amps, and that is with the PID full on. I wonder if you could use manual mode
    to lessen the amp draw? Or use a smaller element.The PID typically does on or off, so you're
    pulling 100% ...

    I don't know if that is the wrong thing to do or not because I certainly don't want to present
    PJs work as my own.Please let me know if that is not ok to do. I will not attempt until I know
    one way o...

    Pretty minor reason. The gfci breaker to my panel is in another room. When I'm done brewing I
    switch the pid off. I don't always go to the other room to shut off power to the panel. Not

    Having a switch for every component isn't dumb....gives you maximum control. For example, I
    have a power switch for my Auber PID and one for the element. That way I can futz with the PID
    while the ele...

    3 meters on their way from the ebay seller. He didn't accept $19.50 but $20 was a go so that
    seems to be the cut off point.Super excited for volume data! Thank you to the team that works
    this stuff, y...

    Most of the illuminated switches that Auber (and others) sell are capable of handling the
    amperage draw that your pump and timer will handle, so you literally just wire the hot leg
    through the switch ...

    Definitely my #1 concern would be the heat from the burner, so why not look into a heat stick
    (search for the term, lots of people have built them). In short - it's a drop-in heater
    element, so you co...
