    Ebiab schematic

    Exactly what I thought! But I couldn't find it anywhere....so after miss interpreting a spa panel diagram and having my electrician check my work, I took the breaker out of its housing and at the bottom tucked up almost behind it was the lug! A quick rewire and .... Drum roll please... It fired...

    Ebiab schematic

    So I got home from work and eliminated the PJ ground shunt, wired all neutrals directly to the bus bar instead of daisy chaining, checked bus bar for ground and checked that none of the strips were shorting to ground or neutral. Re checked my 240v outlet and plug that nothing was touching...

    I totally agree! :mug:

    Ebiab schematic

    I do have the ground going to one of the bus terminals so I can split it out to household outlet (pump/aux) but I will double check the bus bar itself isn't grounded.

    Ebiab schematic

    Thanks very much for the reply, Spell check changed it... I meant contactor. I pulled it and the neutral to the leds trying to figure out where the short was. I am going to try individual neutrals to the bus bar instead of daisy chaining. Maybe that will get be a bit farther

    Ebiab schematic

    Hey Guys.... so with hat in hand I come looking for solutions. I tried getting my new ebiab up and running but am running into issues. The GFCI keeps tripping when I power up. I have checked all the connections for tightness and signal path but am finding nothing wrong.... but there is. Here is...

    Ebiab schematic

    Thanks for your input Doug! I understand why a series e stop makes more dance now. Unfortunately since its built now using PJs way I guess I will stick with it. I managed to get the panel finished up and my electrician stopped by and gave it a stamp of approval... plus enjoyed a beer from the...

    Ebiab schematic

    Interesting about the earlier versions observation I grabbed the idea from a PJ schematic and thought it made sence but as always there are many ways to create and improve on circuits... especially here.

    Ebiab schematic

    Here is a schematic with the mods I mentioned from doug293cz. I am just working on my panel now and my electrician buddy is stopping by to give it a stamp of approval. Edited to attach correct schematic

    Ebiab schematic

    So I recieved all my parts and started laying out and cutting up the box, a little paint and everything fit quite well. I found a similar schematic from Doug293cz that I followed and added an Estop and a volt/ammeter as well. If all goes well I should have my panel done tonight and I...

    New eBIAB build, questions about controls

    After changing out the pid to the DSPR 120, do you feel that your temp sensor could have remained in your original position instead of mounting it in the kettle wall?

    Ebiab schematic

    I was going to stick with the DSPR120 since this is my first build with a pid. Although an interesting feature being able to switch between two voltages, I will probably just stick with 240v.

    Ebiab schematic

    Hi Guys. I have decided to take the plunge into e brewing from propane! I have acquired some parts already and decided on this schematic to follow from doug293cz. It seems to tick the right boxes for pid and heating element, 5500 watts, i just would like some confirmation that this schematic is...

    Silver Solder help in Canada

    Hi everyone from Vancouver BC, hope there is someone that can steer me in the right direction towards a silver solder that will work for soldering couplers into my keggles. Up here we seem to have a very limited selection and I have searched a bunch of different threads hoping for some answers...

    New Albion Ale clone

    Thanks for confirming my hunch on the Windsor yeast. From the description of the yeast in the video I thought that may be the closest readily available strain to use. Can't wait to bottle these up!:mug:

    1-Gallon Brewers UNITE!

    When I started in the 1 gallon arena I aquired a refractometer which is great for us since you only need a couple of drops to determine gravity. What I didn't know was you need to adjust your fg reading due to the alcohol in the wort. I thought I had a stuck stout at 1.026 for a couple of weeks...

    1-Gallon Brewers UNITE!

    Thought maybe you were using a hydrometer, in which case could explain what is happening.
