i havent used that one, but i have used other brands.
I use a tc-1000 for controlling my sour beer experiments.
the controller doesnt carry any load, the SSR does
that SSR will need some sort of heat sink though.
it should be pulling 10amps (2200w / 220v=10a)
the controller should work fine, just keep an eye on the SSR for heat build up. sometimes cheap ones burn out. hope that helps

Yeah thanks bro im just checking them out now theirs so many lol the one you mentioned looks like a better build quallity than the ones i was looking at might go that option the only reason i liked the other one was because it showed set temp and actual temp but ill be welding temp gauges in the kettles anyway so i guess its not that important really ill keep posting pics up as the build progress  cheers mate 👍🏻

That came out really nice Siambrew!

So with 2 vessels shown in the pics I was wondering how your brew process was going to work when 3 are normally required . . .

But although I couldn't zoom in far enough to see . . . Are those 2 transfer pumps on either side of your brewstand?

Yeah mate i was going to go 3 vessle but i ended up fabricating false bottom 2 inches above the element in the tun so ill just recirculate the mash as its mashing keeping the temp even then tranfer it over to the other kettle. Ill use the other pump for whirlpooling plate chiller n transfuer to the frementers
