Wish I would have seen this thread before I blew through 6 oz in an IPA. Mine seems worse than
grassy. Super vegetal with an almost pumpkin flesh flavor. Do you think these would be OK to
bitter with ...

Check out Quaffer's schematic: RE4 is a single pole double throw relay which selects between a
hot leg and neutral depending on the position of the "rims power switch". For your application,

The polarity doesn't matter. Bring your hot to one side and neutral to the other.

For my HLT, I use the PID alarm to protect against a failed SSR. The alarm contact is in series
with the coil of the contactor and is set to drop out if the temperature goes above 180F.

It looks to me like your design would work, however you could accomplish the same thing with
two DPST relays, one for each element. Just wire your element selector switch to switch the hot
to the appr...

no CFC for me. Just an immersion chiller Do you put the immersion chiller in the kettle during
the boil (after the pre boil reading is taken) ? That could make your post boil volume reading

That's correct. With pumps, you're probably looking at about 28.5 amps.As far as what's "right"
with regards to upgrading, I'm sure you'll get opinions on both sides of the coin. I'm
personally in the...

I'm wondering if it doesn't have something to do with temperature and expansion under
temperature. Not sure about beersmith, but in beertools, pre boil volume is shown @ 212. If
beerstools tells me I ...

If you want 5500 watts, replace the element with one rated at 208V. Here's an example:
