This may be a long shot, but have you tried using more than 7 gallons? 7 gallons may be below
the minimum amount of water required to achieve convection and boiling through the entire
volume of water ...

You need one additional switch on incomong power for safety and because it's 120V you only need
a single pole switch to break the hot side.I can see from your element resistance that you will

The current rating is not high enough.

You won't go wrong with a TapRite regulator.

What should I be looking at in there?I've already confirmed 240v going to the element
posts.You've insulated the pot to reduce loss & verified that 240V is reaching the element. Do
you have a way to m...

I kinda figured this, so how do i affect change in the system?So I use a temp probe at the exit
of the herms coil the mash, to cycle the element in the HLT I assume. Then is my set point is
the Mash t...

Sure, a MARCH 0809-0196-0600 pump is rated at 1.4 Amps, but I checked mine with a amprobe and
it draws less than 1 Amp running. The reason is a motor's current draw is dependent on load &

I did not neglect to mention that, and I'm not trying to heat 35 gallons.As I said, I have a 35
gallon pot, and I am simply trying to heat 7 gallons to test. I like your vid though :PYou may

You should be continuously recirculating.
Posted in thread: 1 pid, 2 ssr, 110v? on 03-17-2013 at 09:02 PM
That is correct.Just another note: With the 2000W elements the current draw on each will be
17A. This means you would need each outlet to be on a 20A circuit and on seperate breakers.If
you use 1500W ...
