Is your basket going to be resting on the bottom of your pot? If so, how is the wort going to get out to the pot? Will you be recirculating your wort? Do you plan on rinsing the grains? 300 seems to...

I don't have a main power switch in my panel. I have chosen to use the breaker as the main on/off since the power cord to the panel is hardwired into the GFCI breaker.

I've use the method of dissolving it in a cup of hot wort first, then toss it into the boil. It's possible the Irish moss did not completely dissolve and some ended up in your drain.

Mine are fused like this:

Some do, but like Kal, I have a larger fuse protecting all of the PIDs. It's a modest price of protection for the more expensive items.
