    I'll check that. My metere was on the SSR output, without the element running. The lights on
    the SSR's are staying on 100% of the time with 100% power output.the output is 235V under load.
    the perform...

    Did you measure 241V under load? Whatever the answer turn the heater element on and measure the
    voltage between the upstream (input) sides of the two SSRs. Now measure the voltage between the
    downstre...

    Why did you go with a relay for each hot leg? Most designs just use one relay on one leg.Brew
    on :mug:well, it's an inexpensive component and most SSR's, when they fail, will fail open.
    it's simply an...

    The mystery deepens. I checked the power output to the plug (the kettle has a short cord on it
    with a 4 prong 220v 30a plug). The output is reading 241v.There is a bit of build up on the
    element itsel...

    I just did, it's 10.5 ohms. 10.5 ohms translates to 23 amps at 240v, 23 amps @ 240v converts to
    5500 watts, roughly. so ... it may be the original power source? possible..........

    Ha ha, I wish it were that easy!!!It's definitely one 5500 element. My element is run by an
    Auber PID that feeds two solid state relays. I did replace the two solid state relays (one for
    each line of ...

    I have been running my own little 'electric' brewery for a couple of years. My kettle has a
    5500 watt 220v element in it, and I would typically bring my wort to a boil, then simmer at
    40%. Recently, i...

    Not bad as I recall, this is the darker version of the beer.

    Thanks to everyone for their help, the system is up and running and working well. Made my first
    10g batch in it this past saturday!!

    For the RIMS function you're not moving a high volume otherwise you'll compact your grain bed
    during the recirc. I would think your currect setup would work fine for brewing until you can
    upsize your ...
