I would say probably not. I find if the temp is below about 75F the brew goes flat from the yeasts going too dormant. Then it tastes funny from overdominance of the bacteria. Maybe the GT's can still...

Thanks for the info. So might a slightly higher temp such as 140F for a shorter period be better than say 104F for a longer period?

Yes it took 24+ hours in the 104F bucket-in-warm-water method to...

Oh ok that makes sense, I could definitely see that for rigid conduit. For EMT or maybe even IMC maybe not so much?

If doing it of course you must keep neutrals separate and use the incoming hot with the corresponding neutral. If doing it in conduit I would run each circuit in its own conduit lest you get into...

The only time you would connect neutral to an element would be if it were a 120V element. For a 240V element, it's going to get two hots and hopefully a ground. (For a normal 240V/120V system).

Provided all line to neutral loads are fed off 'hot bus A' that is true. If someone later buggers on somewhere upstream of the fuse and returns to the neutral it could be higher. Might want to look...

Right the elements are not connected to neutral, but that design is most certainly drawing 120VAC control power using the neutral (to power the light and relay coil).

If a line to ground fault occurs, and both ground wires are connected in parallel, the fault current will flow in both grounds. But that's not really an issue; it will likely tend to favor the 10ga...

I think their idea is that the neutral doesn't get much current load. i.e. it looks like it is just powering the 120V power light and the coil. So that's maybe a couple amps. Still personally I would...

It's probably for some 'sanity check' like if the temp gets above this value or below this value there is something f'd up that requires manual intervention.

That switch is an SPST but with two sets of contacts. So you'd just pick the set of contacts you want when you wire it up based on switch position (NO or NC).

I think you could do that. It just wouldn't be PID control like the Auberin with an SSR. Even if it cycles the relay a few times per minute I think it will handle that, though it might make the relay...

Hm that's interesting, it doesn't even look like pot completely covers both induction cookers. Maybe they don't need 100% overlap of the metal to induce the full current in the pot.
