    I am using two DL06, one 05 and some Siemens PLC's.Cheers,ClaudiusBClaudius I would love to
    hear more about your set up. Pics would be great if your willing. I am using a single DL06 and
    I believe it ...

    The brewing system represents 1-1/2 years design and purchase of components, 6 months to
    fabricate, wire, and test, and over 2500 hours in the software write and test phase. As a home
    brewing system i...

  • Posted in thread: 120V power demand design question on 02-27-2011 at 09:41 PM
    So I guess for my peristaltic pumps I need to be on a different circuit..I think you will
    probably still be ok. Check the amperage on the pumps and then add everything up. As long as
    you stay below 20...

    That would be insane huh...maybe an idea for later. The three are used in: 1 for the HLT, 1 for
    the MT and 1 for the kettle. Also, if I have something plugged in another outlet while the
    heating eleme...

    If you are doing 1 gallon batches a single 1500W heater should work. I am not sure if I
    understand your post correctly, but 3x 1500W elements in a single gallon is overkill. I use
    4000W to heat 10 gal...

  • Posted in thread: Question on grounding keggle on 02-26-2011 at 04:49 PM
    I figure I can recirculate thru my Rims tube for extra power in heating strike water But
    everyone seems to suggest 220V. I'm trying to be practical. The trouble is really the hole in
    my keggle if I de...

  • Posted in thread: Question on grounding keggle on 02-26-2011 at 03:38 PM
    Thanks. Hey, Trevor, any downside to having two elements mounted in one keggle? I was
    considering 220V, but my electrical panel is full and it would require rewiring existing
    circuits to slimline brea...

  • Posted in thread: Question on grounding keggle on 02-26-2011 at 04:40 AM
    I use a keggle with two elements in it as well. For both my elements I connected the ground
    wire from the plug to the element enclosure and that worked well. If you already grounded your
    keg than you ...

    There are some sweet electric brew rigs that people are posting up on these forums. One thing I
    have not seen a lot of though are PLCs. Has anyone played around with using PLCs in their brew
    rigs? I a...
