IF your outlet is indeed a "spare" dryer outlet - the answer is Yes. Is certainly can be done. Three wire dryer outlets provide 240V and Neutral to the dryer.

You are correct. I drew the diagram quite some time ago and posted it in response to a question asked on the forum. I made a quick diagram to answer the issue at that time.

That is not really a correct statment.
A tipical " dryer outlet" is hot - hot - neutral. This is due to it supplying an appliance with both a 240v and a 120V device within it ... Think about it..

After looking very closely at the contactor images, it appears that the contactor only opens one of the 240V connections. I'd not recommend it for a 240V E-Brew setup.

Sorry about that.

Did you use the same wire color as illustrated in the wiring diagram?

Also, I do not understand - . There is no connection between the E-Stop and the SSR in the diagram.
