In the final stages of getting my list for parts needed on the electric build.
I still need a couple things before I can start ordering parts.
1) I am going to use a 5500w element in a 10G Blichmann. The Camco ULWD element shows a length of 17.25 inches. My assumption is that it includes the terminal end in the measurement but I would guess this is still too long for the 10g kettle as I think I will only have 14 inside inches to work with, maybe less. Any ideas as to what element works best in the 10g Blichmann's?
2) Maybe I will get lucky and get the advice from the Almighty PJ on wiring but the system will be something like this:
-Safety Shut off
-5500 w element
-Lighted on/off switch for element
I intend to eventually have two elements and at least one pump. I think I will just wait to wire those later outlets and switches in later so the above requirements are the necessary parts.
PJ, I know you have a lot of requests for help and I appreciate what you do for all of us. If you want me to contact you via PM please let me know. Also, I have a Grainger account and get awesome discounts and it looks like you might know what parts I can get from them to make this happen as far as the switches go.
Thanks in advance to all of you who have helped in this process. I hope to be brewing with it before winter hits hard.
