Posted in thread: Brewing on a single 3-phase 16 amp circuit? on 07-07-2014 at 08:09 AM
Your available current on the 10A circuits will be more like 16A(from each tree phase leg) /
1.73 = 9.25A.That gives you 9.25A X 230V = 2127.5W on each 10A circuit, resulting in a total of
6382.5W (3 ...
Posted in thread: I need some help from our resident electric brewing specialists on 04-11-2014 at 04:51 PM
Why do you think you need the neutral? Is there any 110v equipment in there at all? You only
need to connect the two hot legs and ground as far as I can read this.By the way, in other
countries it is ...

Autotuning works best when you have as real-life conditions as you can. Generally you have
aprox the same flow from batch to batch. You may have a little more or less grains and total
water, but that ...

Did you autotune after installing the new element? It may have similar amount of power, but
might have higher thermal mass. That could affect things. Any little change may need a

No problem with pot sensing as long as you keep the distance from the coil to the glass (or
pot) as close to original as possible.As for connecting it to three phase, thats pretty
straight forward. Th...

Haha, thought that might get your attention. It's three 2kw induction cookers that I
disassembled and mounted in a custom box. I did that to get the coils close enough to be
covered by a 80qt stainles...

I run a 6Kw induction cooker on 230vac threephase. What's not homebrew about that?
Posted in thread: Is a thermowell necessary? on 06-08-2013 at 06:04 AM
The sensor in your link is already sitting in a thermowell. The SS sheathing of the probe is
the thermowell, the sensor is inside.Empty thermowells can be used when you have a "bare"
sensor, or a sens...

I have one that has a 4.5m long, 8mm OD copper coil, 2kw element. It has a PT-100 on the wort
out and is put into a stainless thermos. PID controlled and keeps mash temp within 0.1-0.2 degr

Just to clarify, the light and element needs to be in paralel not in series, if that was your
inension. One end to SSR and the other end to your neutral leg. For both the lamp and element.
