That looks like an awesome setup! Any more info on the control panel and build overall?

It all looks really neat and taking a guess at what each bit is for on the panel is for looks like the sort of panel I'd like to build.
It's basically theelectricbrewery.com panel build, with a few minor changes and a bit of reorganising. I'll take a close up this evening.

Alright.... here's mine, and another Electric Brewery Clone, but with back to back capability. A minor error on the labelling as well. I built this in 2014 in Ireland, but now living back in Oz. Had my sparky mate over today to wire in the mains to the shed. Should be ready next week to brew again after a 2 year hiatus.... Can't wait!!!!

Nothing as cool as the guys who have their whole setup on one trolley! Never managed to do that. In my defense I'm trying to get larger batches than the standard 23 litres. Running about 80 litres atm. Fermenter size / cooling seems to be the barrier to start, although heating up a big batch would be a serious challenge too. Can't afford that next step :(
Liking some of the automation I have seen here. You can see the iPhone shots of my attempts at controlling HotLiquor (HERMS) and fermenter temps.

Cheers
Nick

Was sick of having the pump on the ground and having to move it around for different processes, plus no kill switch except the one at the wall was not practical. Had a fair bit of it lying around, spent about $40 on the rest of it. Bought an extension lead with an inline switch because I don't trust myself wiring and didn't want to pay a sparky. A bit messy, but hey what's home brewing if it's not a little ghetto.

Here’s my cobbled together 4v setup. No fancy control panel yet just a dedicated 30A circuit and 6 10A plugs on the back wall.
Double batching last night, got one on the boil and another mashing, took me a while to dial it in but it’s working good now. The cheap $10 kettle with 2.5m of copper in it works a treat for step mashing, getting 1deg per minute.

Here is the final version of my 3 Vessel CP 36 litre Nano system.
It is controlled by SmartPID and uses parts from various suppliers
I also use a Digiboil converted into a single vessel system again powered by a SmartPID.
Thx everyone!

Spent today cleaning and priming the chiller and putting it all together. I'm stoked with the setup. Can't wait to ferment with temperature control. I'm going to christen it tomorrow with a Hefeweizen.

A fermentation station getting ready to be built. These are the best fermenters that will take your beer from a 7 to a 9 on a scale of 10.
