Posted in thread: What gauge wire to wire up 240v controller and components. on 12-28-2015 at 02:49 AM
The above is true but it's more complicated than this suggests. First, if the whole panel is
based on a 3-wire line in, he will have a neutral for now and no problem with running a 120v
pump, and usin...

More information is needed - what components are you talking about? The PID Power? 18AWG - more
than plenty big enough for a 1amp fuse protecting it. The pump circuit is unprotected in the

10 Gauge for lines carrying high amperage. 14 Gauge for lower amperage things like 120V plugs
if your using pumps, you could even go 18 gauge or something for PID/SSR data pins if you
wanted but i did...

I just ordered everything I need for my EBIAB setup. My inspiration came from this thread and
of course the awesome P-J's wiring diagram in the thread.I have the controller components
exactly as they ...

There is no benefit to "normal" water to grist ratios of 1.25 - 1.5 qt/lb when it comes to
conversion efficiency. Experimental results show that thinner mashes (higher qt/lb) provide
Posted in thread: Doughing in at normal 1.25-2 quarts/lb. on 12-07-2015 at 04:49 AM
I brew with a 70 quart pot, so size is not an issue. I read there were benefits to having a
normal ratio when it comes to conversion. I've also read a mash out is indeed important with
BIAB in order t...

Anyone else do this? I just did my first BIAB and it worked out well. I dough in with around
1.5 quarts per pound and mash for an hour. Then I'll add enough boiling water to get to my mash
out temp. I...

Wire an outlet for the pump, that way when you do get one all you have to do is plug it in.
Also I'm sure you already know that running a 5500W element at 120V will get you ~1400W. So
you'll need a de...

I just read all 54 pages of this thread and I'm amazed by the wealth of knowledge on this
thread!! This is so perfect for what I want to do. I want to make something like the original
diagram with a s...
