    3 phase feed

    I am bringing 3 phase in my building strictly for my 3.5 bbl system. I'm thinking of feeding it from the meter, to a fused disconnect, to the control panel. Anyone else done this?

    You would be better off setting up a breaker panel. The electric company won't set the meter until your setup has been inspected. At least that's my experience in a metro area.

    Also, if you have three phase motor loads in the brewhouse, the last thing you want is a fused disconnect. If a phase trips, you want all three to open.

    Why would you want to skip a panel??? Ideally you have a panel with a main disconnect for panel work (adding breakers etc), then if required, a fused disconnect next to the load (control panel). if the fused disconnect isn't required then the breaker at the panel serves as the disconnect for the load.
