A good reminder to me as well as it turns out. Just ordered an in-line GFCI for my 240V induction burner that I've been using without it- which is plain dangerous and stupid. Can't brew beer if you're dead.
That is a good call. I have one for the PID controller, vent fan controller, and pump. The PID GFCI did trip once when I spilled wort on the heater element plug. Saved my bacon.
However, I do not have GFCI on my induction cooktop connection.
The dryer plug into the wall is a foot off the ground (my brewery is my laundry room), and my cord to the fob has a drip loop so any spills won’t track down the wire into the device.
I have a heavy extension cord from the cooktop plug that tracks around the edge of the room to the wall. I have the cooktop to cord connection hanging higher than the boil kettle.
Even though it’s well protected, I might pull that cord off the floor in case there’s a big spill. ...and start shopping for a 240v GFCI.
