Yes it's a 4 [plug dryer plug, but I will be tapping into a junction boxin the basement. How do
you tell if the breaker on the main panel is GFCI or not?

Do you have to have GFCI? If so, my current plan was to tap into my dryer run which is on the
same side of the house as my brewery. That being asid, I highly doubt that I have a GFCI

So doyou need a thermocouple on the BK or not? If you are setting percentage of power on the
PID I don't see a reason to have a BK thermocouple. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

My understanding is the thermocouple is a feedback to the pid for temp control. If so you can
set temp on pid and it will control power to the ssr accordingly. Correct or not?

Maybe I should look at another way to do this. I would like to know temps of both kettles, one
for mashing and the other for controlling the Boil. Not sure whether im getting too complex
with this or ...

How else can yuo control the BK if you have no temp feedback

Replacing the K Type with 2 RTD isnt cheap, about the same price s another PID. Makes me think
about revisiting the Bakatronics PWM system, hell it's manual but if I have to babysit it might
as well n...
