I agree with day_trippr. For the top of a keezer, you can use a fan to blow cold air up into the tower to keep the beer lines cold. Ditch the glycol lines.

I'm currently playing around with my kettle pickup tube, trying to minimize losses in the kettle (wort that is left behind after draining the kettle from the bulkhead).

You really don't need to use the stock lid. Use some wood, stone, granite, etc, just insulate it and use weatherstripping on top of the collar.

Looks great, BTW!

I believe the Johnson controller is a single stage (only heats or cools, not both). It's not a great choice for a fermentation chamber controller, since you'll want both cooling and heating.

The anode I linked to has 1/2" male threads, so I drilled a hole in my aluminum kettle, and used a high temp silicon gasket and SS nut to secure it.

14/3 is fine, it's rated for 15 A. You will want to get stranded wire, used for making extension cords. Home Depot or most home improvement stores will have it. I did the same for my Chugger pump.

I've attached my circuit drawing that I plan to use for my 120V 1500W RIMS controller. I'm going to use two of the mini relays, one to isolate input power, the other to isolate/enable element power.

If you aren't getting anything from the STC1000 relay now, it's probably scrap. There's no repairing cheap units like that, just pitch it and get another.

I have heard of some setups that use the output of the STC1000 to control the coil of an external relay, so you can provide more power to the load (element in your case).
