Re: Heating Element Control

I finally got around to replacing my breaker which was the problem. Now I'm getting 240V and when I flip the on switch on my element controller the breaker keeps tripping. I have tried disconnecting as many components as I could to fix the problem but I couldn't get it to work. Do you guys think may...

Re: Heating Element Control

No, the multi meter showed 1 because exactly why I said it did. The breaker was in the wrong position and was using 2 hots of the same phase. Got everything working now though thankfully.

Re: Heating Element Control

No luck testing it today. After trying about everything I decided to pull out the multi meter. When I tested a hot and ground it was about 100V AC and when I tried the other it was the same. But when I tried both hot it said like 1. What is this about? I can't figure out if its something wrong with ...

Re: Heating Element Control

Yes I did have the element hooked up and fully submerged when testing, but i will try bypassing both the ammeter and switch and the potentiometer to try and pinpoint the problem. Ill give it a go tonight and let you know. Thanks

Re: Heating Element Control

Everything is wired up exactly as pictured. The PSR is a chinese module for 40A, the pot is rated for 2 W, the ammeter is AC, and I'm not sure what you mean by what mode is the pot calling for. I was having trouble figuring out what way to wire it. I think I did legs 1 and 2.

Re: Heating Element Control

Just finished wiring my 240V 5500W but I am having problems with it. Simply, when I plug it in, it doesn't work and the ammeter isn't reading any Amps. I don't think that I wired it wrong, but here is a diagram of what I did just in case. How does it look? See any problems?

Re: Uncle Remus Rice Vodka

Very nice, I will probably do something very similar, good idea to mix the rice to a pulp, I'm sure it increases yield. Keep me posted, I'll let you know what I end up doing for my recipe

Re: Uncle Remus Rice Vodka

Anyone have any idea on a grain bill for this if you were just using rice? I was thinking it'd be something like 2.5# of rice per gallon? And should the rice be rinsed before it is cooked, or just thrown right in?

How much recirculation water?

I am starting to build my new bokabob and I am trying to decide if I was to use tap water and just run the output down the drain or if it is feasible to use recirculating water. I know that I will need a lot of water for this to be possible, but would I need more than a 55 gallon drum or a large tra...

Re: Heating Element Control

They are 12v but I may just get a 120V to avoid the transformer. So all I would have to do is use only 1 hot and one neutral and that would bring it to 120? Pretty easy, thanks!

Re: How do we actively pursue legalization?

I agree that the only real way to do anything is write your representatives. They are the only ones who can actually do anything and if enough of them hear about it, it is the only way they will try and get something done. I also disagree that once you start writing representatives you have to stop ...
