The cheapest possible way would be to get a splitter for the CO2 line and use party taps. You could do this for beers that need to age or ones that you will not drink as frequently like a RIS.

Yes, for a 240v element you will have two 120v lines powering it BUT the lines are 180 degrees out of phase meaning that while one is at +120v the other is at -120V. Therefore there will be 240v...

I would recommend the temp probe be in the output of the HEX coil. That would represent the max temperature of your mash and if you have good circulation and insulation it should also be a good...
