    Kettle geometry will also play a factor in how many watts you need, wider kettles sucking up
    more wattage. for 9 gallon boils, 3000w may be a little timid IME.I would use at least one, if
    not two at 2...

    How are your elements mounted?Right now, just the single 1500w in my RIMS tube. I may have come
    up with a solution though. I may borrow my dryer outlet and go with a removable tri-clamp
    element contro...

    I boil a little over 7 or so gallons at a time and the two elements have no problem holding a
    great rolling boil. During hot break and hops addidtions, I just unplug one element briefly to
    avoid a boi...

    I run two 1500w 120v elements in my BK. I just leave both on fully through out the boil, it
    never really gets outta hand. The only down side I see is a little extra time to get to the
    boil.What are yo...

    That Auberins DSPR1 is interesting - I didn't know they made those. I probably wasn't clear
    enough in my OP, but the issue is that the 1500w element currently controlled by my PID is
    mounted in my RIM...

    So right now, I run a 1500w 120v RIMS tube setup controlled by PID. The toolbox that I mounted
    my control panel in has plenty of room for an additional element outlet and power switch. After
    dealing w...

    Sounds good to me!

  • Posted in thread: Yet another RIMS toolbox! on 01-22-2015 at 01:00 PM
    Have you noticed if the inside of the toolbox gets very warm/hot? Do you foresee needing to add
    a fan in the future?There's already a fan in there! We installed a USB fan with in intake port
    at the re...

    Great job Andy. You give me hope. Definitely coming by to check this out sometime. What did you
    brew?Blonde ale! Should be on tap in a few weeks if you want to come by for a pint.

    What heating element and Temp Probe are you using in that RIMS tube?DaveI'm using a LWD 1500w
    element that I picked up at Home Depot. I think it's their house brand - it seems to perform
    well.The temp...
