Re: Heating Element Control

Good day to all :) Been a while... Good to see some old familiar names still here :) I was going to switch a keg to electric. Looking just to plug and play ;) Is this all I need to run a 4500 W 60Hz element? http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=5000+watt+dimme...

Re: Cleaning old copper

You can clean copper with lemon and salt, right? A piece of lemon, a dab of salt on it, scrub down your copper just fine, no?

Don't know if it works or not, but it will be frothy for sure :?

Apparently, I can put in a 4500 w element, and just buy a dimmer rated for 5000 w, wire it together and it is good to go. Is this correct? I do not have to wire in resistors and triacs etc?
