Ok, so the two downfalls so far are: 1) Can't brew when the power goes out. (I'll be drinking
if the power goes out) 2) Not portable, if built on 240. Not exactly a huge concern for me, but
we do plan...

These are the two options you have if you are not an electrician:a) Be prepared to do ~20hrs+
of research (reading electrical code, peoples blogs about their builds, and a ton on basic

Thanks again everyone for all this input.I think I'm going to pitch a pack of notty, and stick

This is great help. And the 5500W 240v element will run on a 20 amp circuit just fine? Thank
you!Yes.5500W/4= 1375W1375W/120V= 11.5AEven on a 15A circuit with a pump (approx 1.3A) , you
are only using...

I'm not sure if I understand this. If your HLT temp rises quickly and your HEX out does not
