Yes I remember drooling over that.John Beere said:Mine is very similar, only horizontal. It uses a 3,500 w 220v heating element. Due to some personal issues, I have not had the chance to use it exect in testing. I'm in hopes to give it a go in the next two weeks...
Mine is directly connected to a love controller which is rated at 16A. The 3,500W heating element is around 15A (3,500W / 240V - 14.6A).wortmonger said:I sooooo need to do this to my "keg" HLT, I am holding out thinking I might make my life easier and get a bigger "cooler" HLT so I am not refilling half-way through. If I did decide to do my keg, can I simply hook up the element to my Ranco ETC (110V element in my case and 110V Ranco), or do I need something in between like a switch or something. I am not good with electrical at all.
For the HLT I will use a stainless paint stirrer hooked to a small fan motor. For my MT I am going to use a icecream machine motor and make a mash paddle.korndog said:What are you using for a stirrer?
