    It's because brewing isn't a constant load...

    Tie all the grounds together.You could never have 50 amps flowing down the 20 amp when the 50
    amp is unplugged. :mug:

  • Posted in thread: What does a case of beer cost you? on 01-22-2015 at 05:24 PM
    Pretty much the only beer I buy is good craft beer and when I go to the bottle shop it usually

    I'm building a 50 amp control panel. I have not been able to find a terminal strip that is
    sized for #6 wire. Most of the ones I find are for wire gage size 10 and smaller. Any

    enough? Vessel losses and grain absorption would be empirically known or calculated close
    enough, no?

    I think these types of valves are pilot operated and require like 15psi to open. I don't
    believe it'll work in gravity (or even chugger/march pump) system. This fact probably got lost
    in the chinglish...

    You could even make it simpler than Bobby suggested. One SSR, tie the commons of your PID and

    Yup...leaning towards MM2-2.0 with base and hopper. Will my Dewalt 18V cordless drill fit the
    shaft on it?If its a half inch drill then yes it would fit but I don't think it'll have the ass
    to turn it...
