For my HLT, I use the PID alarm to protect against a failed SSR. The alarm contact is in series with the coil of the contactor and is set to drop out if the temperature goes above 180F.

Do you put the immersion chiller in the kettle during the boil (after the pre boil reading is taken) ? That could make your post boil volume reading look higher than it really is.

That's correct. With pumps, you're probably looking at about 28.5 amps.

As far as what's "right" with regards to upgrading, I'm sure you'll get opinions on both sides of the coin. I'm personally...

Is there a resister in series with the fuse? You need one to limit the current.

I actually use pure O2 now, but always wondered how effective shaking was when I used to do it. I probably shook it for about a minute and a half or so.

In that case, the alarm contact should operate when the process high alarm (ALM1 setting) comes in. Is that what you're expecting to happen? Sounds like you have it wired correctly.

Even if there was a cycle limitation, how often are you likely to hit the e-stop? I've used mine exactly once, and that was during testing.

Thanks. It's the tank from a high voltage capacitor switch. I was going to use a paint can until I saw this in the scrap heap at work. It's a lot more sturdy.

I think the terminals on the GFCI outlet are bussed together, so you can't switch them separately. Just make a box with two switched regular outlets and a cord and plug it into the GFCI outlet.
