The 240 vac gets wired into the SSR. The DC from the PWM controls the SSR.

Why not pump oxiclean thru the chiller after every batch? If you don't have a pump, soak it in
a bucket of hot oxiclean after every batch and then rinse.

Jeffmeh's approach is correct because you cannot accidentally turn both elements on at the same
time. Personally, I would simply unplug one and plug in the other. So simple. I have a 50 amp

If you put the elements near the bottom of the kettle and the thermowell near the top of the
kettle, I don't think stratification will be that big of a deal. Pumps were added to HLT to
improve heat ex...

I have a 50 gallon BK and make 30 gallon batches. I typically start the boil with about 40
gallons of wort. I have two 4500 watt elements on a 50 amp system. I run the PID at 100% until
the boil start...

One PID can drive 3 separate SSRs.

Are you using the pid for cooling or mashing? If you are using for mashing, you are close
enough. If you are using the pid for cooling, then you need to calibrate the thermocouple.

If you are boiling at 212F, you are close enough.

Your water is similar to mine. I treat my water with calcium hydroxide or slaked lime.See this
