    Electric Brewing Setup - electrical questions

    Electric Brewing Setup - electrical questions

    Pardon my ignorance, a GFCI protected cord has the protection built into the cord? It knows to trip when it sense a leakage of current?

    Electric Brewing Setup - electrical questions

    I just had an idea, not sure if this is possible or totally breaking all sorts of electrical code/rules/blah... Can I mount the spa panel on my brewing rig, and feed the SPA panel with (sufficiently sized) electrical cable from the four prong panel? Or is it a very bad idea to feed the spa...

    Electric Brewing Setup - electrical questions

    Awesome, this is good information. It sounds like GFCI is something that I need... Not sure how it will affect my welding use of that same outlet. The spa panel might be out of the question, I only got the approval to put in a 240v receptacle. I don't think I can do more wiring in the...

    Any recommendations for the widest 10 gallon brewpot

    Alas, it's time for me to downsize to a smaller apartment. The plus side, is I will have a natural gas range to brew beer! Does anyone know of a manufacturer of a brew pot (or any stainless pot for that matter) that is wide enough to go over two burners on a gas stove? Maybe an oval pot? :)...

    So I sanitized my corny kegs with bleach...

    I now know, from reading about half a dozen websites on kegging, that I shouldn't use bleach on my corny kegs because it causes pitting and corrosion of the stainless steel. Realistically, how much damage could I have done by leaving them in the bleach solution for 1hr? For future, is Star...
