Very cheap PT100. If I did it again I wouid probably go for a 2x thermocouples because you can get pointy ones to monitor meat temperature. Can't remember off hand whether my PID controller accept thermocouples though.

This is great. Wonder if something simple like this could be ported over to controlling a RIMS tube.

This controls one of my 1,650 watt elements.
I use (2) 1,650 watt elements in my 11 gallon pot.
Only one goes through the PID, and that is only when mashing.

Would this setup work with a 2000w 120v element? If not, what changes would need to be made. I'm converting a kettle to a eHLT, still going to boil with my Blichmann burner and mash in a cooler (for now). I think this might work for good way to heat strike/sparge water.
