I have searched for a while now and can't seem to find the answer to this.
I recently read jkarp's counter top brewery brutus 20 and I want to do something along those lines.
I have most of what I need and this could be a great winter set up for me. I want to turn my 10 gallon mega pot into an electric kettle with a 3500 w ld heating element.
I plan on using the conduit box tuturial on theelectricbrewery.com.
It seems everyone is using a controller of some sort either PID or PWM or SSR or some combination of the three. For right now I do not need any automation and would like to simply plug and unplug the kettle when necessary.
My outlet is my dryer outlet and is 3 prong:
Can I just use a plug like this directly with the element?:
