I use wire nuts for the wiring, and 12 or 14 gauge wire. I go directly from the wire nut to the duplex socket. I use a 12 Amp cord, so I make sure not to overload. But then, a 12V DC converter...

Yes, I put in an extra unswitched duplex socked in my build, and those I have built for club members (about 12.) I use it for a computer fan, plugging in a phone 12V DC adapter. It seems to help...

I misordered one from Amazon - a 12V AC version instead of a 110V version. Amazon makes returning things like that easy, although I did have to pay the return shipping fees. Considering it was my...

I generally use 16 ga cable and 14 ga wire for my builds. If someone wants one with bigger gauge I do it, but I don't like bending the 12 ga wires around. A 16 ga cable is rated at 13 Amps while...

Where is the probe? Is it attached to a vessel? It should be.

Are you using a fan in the freezer to keep temps fairly even inside?

How are you measuring the temp in the freezer? If you have...

I can attest to it melting. The second time I used my reflectix wrap on my keggle, I forgot to remove it when I turned the heat on to get to mash out temp. It is still useable, but it sure isn't as...
