I plan on using the PID to control mash temp, but only using the PID to display the temp while
chilling. Learning the system wouldn't be an issue.My biggest concern is will the temp read the
same if I...

I'm thinking about using two different RTD sensors, one in my RIMS tube to monitor the mash
them then another in an instrument T to monitor chill temp. Is it possible to swap the cord

Why not just use a 1500 watt element? 1500/120= 12.5 amps.Well I'm trying to stay under 80% of

Thank you for the info I'm not sure if this is the right section of the forum, but figured I'd
