Sorry to hear you are having issues with the filter, but not surprised. Best of luck working

This probably won't work, as the LED would still be connected to 120 V thru the element. The
element won't drop enough voltage with only the LED current flow to keep the LED from turning
on. Brew on :...

Kal uses a 7a fuse for all of the 120v wiring.

In my previous house I built out a room to house a sump for a reef aquarium. For the walls I
used plywood panels and painted with chlorinated rubber paint. Held up great in a humid, salt

also consider shutting the element off entirely while adding the goodies and even while
stirring. then let it rip!This! Turn off element until fully dissolved and you will be fine.
Posted in thread: My plans for a 20g BIAB 120v electric brewing system on 09-13-2015 at 05:54 PM
A single 120v element will not be adequate to boil anywhere near the capacity of the 20g pot.
You would likely either need two 120v elements on separate circuits, or a 240v element.

Trace the 2 hots from the element to the next terminations. Run a hot from each of those
terminations to your 240v led. Parallel achieved.

@jeffmeh, I think there should be enough surface area. Still need to run a trial though. I
initially had it post pump but after some discussions, since I don't use bags during the boil,
I though it wo...

I would be concerned about putting a filter that can clog before the pump inlet, as it could
starve the pump. Personally, I don't see the utility of that filter anyway, as trub in the
fermentor is no ...

If you are using a 50a breaker for overcurrent protection, you need 6awg wire, not 10awg.
