As I'm waiting for my Stout kettle to arrive I realize I need to brew, and soon. I'm building a single pid controlled ebiab controller, using mostly Auber Instruments gear, and stealing a lot from voltin, P-J, and many others who have gone before me and helped immensely. More on that later. I have a 60 amp gfci installed in my main panel, which I'm running out to my brewshed, and I want to run a ebiab keggle off of this (I had originally planned on doing a 3v herms, hence the 60a gfci). So on to the point of this new thread : : :
To hold me over until my new Stout kettle gets here, and I build a nice controller, I am building a simple, cheap (hopefully), electric controller for my e-keggle with parts sourced mostly from ebay. I already bought this ssvr/potentiometer
and other than that, want to install a simple DPST 30a switch to kill power prior to the SSVR/Pot. Question is, will any of these switches (especially the red one, because it looks cool) fit the bill?
I am going to put it all in a junction box from Lowe's (probably) and was going use a 3 prong dryer plug as receptacle and my source of wire for the build.
And that's it, except for the heatsink for the SSVR . One switch, variable power control, element in keggle. Works?
