    Great! Sometimes I get carried away. I get so used how some of our ground support shipment is
    built. I just end up thinking it should be the same on the brewery. I doubt I'll abuse my
    brewery as much ...

    Strain reliefs galore. I have used the aluminum and plastic ones. Both seemed well made. found
    this one on Amazon.

    I know I am chiming in late here but went I brew i start out with almost 18 gallons of wort at
    the start of the boil and I use a 4500W element to heat it to boil. One thing to remember is
    that wile yo...

    OMG $36, that better relieve a lot of strain for that kinda money lol...It's metal and also has
    a basket weave cable grip on it. It's not just a a gland. I've looked at using a plastic PG36
    gland, but...

    Augiedoggy, what did you use for your strain relief/cable gland? I'm looking at the Cooper
    TCI497. It's $36 on Amazon.

    I was going to use a range cord originally, but it's too short for my application. I want the
    control box under my porch in case it rains. The receptacle is about 18" off the ground, and 3'
    away from ...

    Yes, do not build a male plug that has the potential to be hot....that's a cattle prod you do
    not want in your brewery! Shame they don't make 50 amp range style 4 prong male receptacles for
    enclosures...

    I've got ice machines at work, so I'm not worried about that much. Once again, portable and
    hideable trumps having to get ice in my situation. Thanks for your input!

    Do not terminate the cord with a live male plug!!! Either 1) cut the female end off and hard
    wire inside the panel with a strain relief, 2) leave the female end on and create a pigtail
    cord out of the...

    So I've realized I made an error when I bought my 50 amp extension cord for the control panel
    power. It has a male and female end. Obviously I'll need the male end to plug into my outlet on
    he wall. I...
