Need some help/advice on this one. I am buying a new home that is already setup with a 220 volt 100 amp circuit with ventilation ductwork already installed. I typically boil for 10 gallon batches and am primarily an extract brewer. What sort of setup would be best given the electrical connections already in place? Thanks in advance for your advice.

Thanks,

Gerry,

100 amp service might be a little bit tight. Newer housed comes with 200 amp service. I am not an electrician thou :)

No he said he has a 100AMP CIRCUIT... DAYUM! Not SERVICE.

Your home needs at least 200A SERVICE at the panel, you will need at least a 50A circuit for good measure.

I have a build thread for my E-keggle and control panel complete with SSR and PID control. I also threw in switches for my pump and HLT heater.

It has been done by many here, you will need to research how we have done it. I have a thread on this, it is one of many.
