    Texas Brewstand / Kettles / Fermenters / Chiller

    I recently bought a Unibrau system. Looking to sell my gravity fed brew stand, with 10" Banjo Burners and a high-pressure regulator and my BK, MLT, and HTL. The kettles were converted from Kegs and have Blichmann thermometer, 3-piece SS ball valve w/dip tube, site glass and a thermowell. The MLT...

    Stc 1000

    Actually the large box did not help that much, the limiting space was the gang box. I bought a 3 gang box and it got tough jamming all the wire in there. If I were to do it over again I would keep the same setup, I like having the 2 controls confined in one box. I can control my fermentation...

    Multiple STC-1000 Controllers

    You know what, now that you mention that I think my mini fridge does have a 90 degree plug. It would be simple to switch them. I will check that out tonight and see what kind of plug my appliances have. John

    Multiple STC-1000 Controllers

    Here is the updated parts photo (showing the THHN wire and the plastic flex conduit) as well as a parts list (which keeps me organized when i go to buy everything I need). Hope this can help some of you if you are thinking of tackling a project similar to this. One thing to note is that temp...

    Multiple STC-1000 Controllers

    So here it is all finished up. I tested it out with some lamps and it worked perfect. I got them both programmed as well: The STC on the left controls the outlet on the left. The top outlet is cool and the bottom is heat. I will be plugging in a small 5 cubic foot chest freezer into the...

    Multiple STC-1000 Controllers

    Wow, thanks for the quick reply. You read that correctly! So I could use just a small piece of wire and run it from one neutral post to the other, leaving what I currently have in place as well?

    Multiple STC-1000 Controllers

    Thanks reynolds for the heads up on the wiring. I took all that junk back and just got 14ga THHN by the foot. Actually saved me about 15 bucks so I was happy about that. Well... I got it all wired up and... not working. The always on outlet works but the two STCs are not coming on. One...

    Multiple STC-1000 Controllers

    Also, I decided to just run 14ga throughout the entire box (drawing does not show this, so I should update it). This shouldn't be an issue should it? I just did not want the extra expense of buying 14 and 16ga. John

    Multiple STC-1000 Controllers

    Thanks Reynolds for all the help. I think I got it now. Here is the updated drawing: Sorry to be short but I am out of town on business the rest of this week so this project is on hold until this weekend. But once finished I will post some pics. In the mean time here is what I was able...

    Multiple STC-1000 Controllers

    I am not sure I have not tested it myself. That is just what GE is saying that they recommend? Thanks for the heads up on the 10A on the controller! Actually I have not tried yet, the chest freezer is still sitting all brand new in its box. I should obviously give that a try and let it run...

    Multiple STC-1000 Controllers

    Hey Everybody, I know that there are tons of STC-1000 wiring how-to threads out there, however I have a couple of specific questions around wiring up multiple, 2 in my case STC-1000s. Below is a wiring diagram that I put together. I am not an EE, or even an electrician for that matter, so...
