dollars when you...

Try plugging and unplugging (I think you have XLR connectors?) a half dozen times. This wipes

A 240V 25A SSR would be the bare minimum you'd need for a 5500W element. For a 2500W element
you could get away with a lot less. You'll only be pulling a little over 10A. But the price

elements. Their ...

I love my Hosehead controller. I've done about seven brew days so far without a problem. It's a
