Any word on cost?

I'm guessing a Top Tier + Tower of Power + 3 Boilermakers + Therminator and other accessories will easily be in the range of the Sabco and MoreBeer setups.

It looks you will need to have some kind of a brew stand to use this.

Here's a high-res image link to one of the temp modules on Blichmann's site:

This is definately just an add on to your current gas fired system, one unit per burner. In the description it says they can be ganged to control multiple burners. The coolest feature is the magnetic flow switch on the sight tube to monitor for slow flow.

Ok, I take it all back - this TOP thing looks very cool indeed! And of course, plenty blingy

Cheers!

I'm really curious about the cost of this thing. Planning a Brutus 10 build in the spring (I was lying in the comments of that post) and a Brutus 10 + Tower of Power would be a thing of beauty.

Both. Either.

The full shebang is something like $600-$800 depending on options from what I recall. That is from a conversation I had with one of the Blichmann guys (not John) during the demo at NHC. Keep in mind that that is for one controller, and the demonstration unit I believe has two controllers (one for HLT, one for mash recirc).

The way it is demonstrated is basically a RIMS configuration, but there is nothing from preventing you to set it up as a HERMS or other configurations, either. You don't need a TopTier or other Blichmann stuff to use it, although obviously it also is designed to work with their other products.

I've had a great time brewing with all of my blichmann gear minus my auto sparge. Looking forward to hearing more reviews about this and seeing what the official MSRP comes out to be.
