Default Show us your control panel!

I'm in the process of trying to decide what's to go in my 100% electric setup control panel so some pictures of yours showing what worked/what didn't would be useful as well as your general brewing process. Thanks!

One example:

Labels? We don't need no stinkin' labels! If you don't know what the switches are for, get the hell off my brewladder!

Ah, I like my brewladder but I think I'm going to be replacing it soon. It's a decent enough idea and it looks cool, but in terms of reaching the design goals I think there's a much better way to go about it.

It's just the HLT controller. Switch on the left is the power. Switch in the middle is the buzzer. Dial knob is temp. Turn on the power, set the temp, set the alarm. When the water is up to temp, the buzzer sounds.

Green light on the left is power, red light on the right indicates power flowing to outlet (i.e. heat is on).

Yes, but first ya gotta get a bottle of homebrew out of the fridge, open it on that handy-dandy opener, pour into a glass, and get primed for brewing!

Here's my control panel.



Not every thing is hooked up yet. I still need heating elements for the HLT and BK (still using gas now), and to find a good float switch. But the controller is programmed and ready for them. Just.. need... more... time...

My favorite part is the bottle opener. Can't mount a bottle opener on a laptop!
