My idea was to place the switch between the PID and the relay that controls the element. There
is no way the PID will have more than 15 Amp output, the PID is fused at 0.75 Amp.

Thanks for sharing the diagram. The plan is to run 1500 Watt element, until I can move
somewhere with 20 Amp sockets, at that point I will change out for a 2000 Watt element. I
intend to place one 15 ...

Hey guys,If anyone would be so kind as to take a look, I'm hoping to get feedback on my circuit
diagram. I'm feeling fairly confident about it, but this is not an area where I want to screw

Thanks for the wisdom. I'll check my gauge and install the outlet if I can. I'll probably do a
discrete outlet so my property manager doesn't notice.

I'm setting up a small electric brewing system for use in my apartment. The breaker board in my
unit has three 20 Amp circuits labeled "Kitchen," but all of the sockets in my kitchen appear
to be 15 A...

Hey folks,I went to bottle my red ale today, my third five gallon homebrew batch. I measured
out 2/3 cup of sugar, or so I though, and boiled it in two cups of water, as per John Palmer's
"How to Brew...

If you have trouble getting labels off, I've found that an overnight soak in PBW will often get
the labels to fall off on their own.

Howdy, folks,My objective is to add a heating function to my Mother of Fermentation chiller.
The chiller was great in the summer, but now I need heat! As suggested by another board member,
I am going ...

Well, I got pretty distracted by school, and have yet to put a heater element in my box. The
term just ended, and I'm hoping to brew some beer real soon, so it's time to put the heat in. I

I love that idea. How do you have it mounted in yours? Were you able to wire it through the
thermostat? I was about about to buy a belt heater at my local homebrew shop, when I realized
that the belt ...
