    Sous Vide BIAB

    Great use of a sous vide, especially if you no longer use it. IIRC, the Anova has an 800 watt heating element. NutriChef makes one a little cheaper with a 1200 watt heating element, incase anyone else wants to try this method with a little more heating and temp holding power. Plus, it makes a...

    Wiring Advice, 240v 3 Prong, Use Neutral as GND?

    An update for closure and posterity; the breaker and its subsequent replacement wete defective. The seller on ebay refunded my money and let me keep the panel and breaker. I contacted GE and they overnighted a brand new replacement breaker free of charge. All now works as it should. Thanks...

    Wiring Advice, 240v 3 Prong, Use Neutral as GND?

    Ok, so I'm a little confused as to which way to go here. I opened my main panel and further visually confirmed the dryer outlet is on its own breaker and no continuity exist between any other circuit. A previous comment mentioned I should decouple the neutral and ground bars in the spa panel...

    Wiring Advice, 240v 3 Prong, Use Neutral as GND?

    Point taken.  I have access to the main panel and my multimeter. I would imagine that killing main power and removing the main panel cover to check for continuity against all circuits would be easier and more thorough than finding and testing every single outlet in my house with...

    Wiring Advice, 240v 3 Prong, Use Neutral as GND?

    Good news is, the dryer outlet is only 6ft from the main panel and I can see the entire run, so I have visual confirmation that there is nothing else on that circuit. Hope that helps.

    Wiring Advice, 240v 3 Prong, Use Neutral as GND?

    I'm running a separate 120V circuit for my pump, though this is a good point should I decide to add that in the future (which has crossed my mind).

    Wiring Advice, 240v 3 Prong, Use Neutral as GND?

    Here are the pics of my spa panel and control panel. I retained the 240V switch in the control panel, which is not reflected in my last wiring diagram. The spa panel is fed by an extension cord in my storage room that plugs into a dryer receptacle. From the receptacle, it is a straight run to...

    Wiring Advice, 240v 3 Prong, Use Neutral as GND?

    New concern... I installed my new spa panel and wired it up, along with finishing up the wiring and build on my kettle. Tested it out and took some boil off measurements over the course of a few hours yesterday, and everything worked great! Now, onto my concern... I gave the "Test" button on...

    Wiring Advice, 240v 3 Prong, Use Neutral as GND?

    I did some more reading in the spa panel thread and came up with this diagram: Any better?

    Wiring Advice, 240v 3 Prong, Use Neutral as GND?

    I'm upgrading from propane to electric and have become confused regarding using neutral as a ground. My outlet is 3-pronged with hot red, hot black, and neutral white. Reading in terms of grounding, I've read don't use neutral as ground because is dumps stray current to the body of the...

    Wort vs malt extract

    Think of extract as dehydrated wort.

    Georgia Taprite T1683ST Three Way Secondary Regulator

    SOLD Never used, only tested. Bought this recently and noticed one of the gas outputs was bent. Called the place I ordered it from and they sent me a new one and let me keep this one. It holds pressure fine on the first two regulators, but the third leaks. It can be used as a two way...

    1st post, 1st beer, 1st starter... Starter Calculator Question

    Since this is a pilsner, using pilsner yeast, should the starter temperature be closer to the 48deg range that I will be fermenting at, or should I do it room temperature? And when you guys talk about cold crashing, at what temperature and for how long do you recommend? I agree that this is...
