    haha. I put a waterproof housing on mine. I made it a big red switch :)Case in point

    Why not a 30A 240V DPST switch? It's what I did. It's not a big red button, but serves the same
    purpose. I bought it at Home Depot....because people like big red buttons. :)

    The resistor returns a small amount of current from one of the phases (Red or Black) to ground
    through the 'system grounding conductor'....It is certainly not what a professional designer
    would come u...

    It's forcing the GFCI to trip by shorting the hot to ground. THIS IS A TERRIBLE DESIGN. Don't
    do it! I'm resisting the urge to get on my soapbox about this virus of a design that has
    infected this for...

    You won't have a problem. If you're really concerned you could use a transformer to isolate
    power to the PID or use a line reactor on your heater, but that is entirely unnecessary for a
    resistive heat...

    I used a standard set of wire crimpers/cutters that had a crimper for insulated terminals. I
    did not use the tool that is for sale on the electric brewery website.Is it advisable to use
    some needle no...

    There are PID algorithms written in C/C++ out there. There is probably already a version
    written specifically for Arduino as well.

    I wouldn't go to the trouble of changing what you already have. If they become a problem remove
    them. They can be a point of failure, and really aren't necessary in most cases. They will
    probably be o...

    10AWG should be fine for 30A. hunter306 is probably correct--it's probably a poor connection.
    Consider leaving the connector out. Maybe you aren't getting a good crimp. Connectors generally
    aren't nec...
