Default Back to brewing

After a long break and two new bathroom and a kitchen later. I think I am ready to start brewing again. He is my question to my brew brothers. Should I build me a new rig? I do like the thought of going electric. No more getting gas and I think my mash temps would be a lot more accurate and it would be fun to build something I want now the wife got hers. If I did build a new one should I go with a control panel and setup like theelectricbrewery.com or I have looked at www.brewtroller.com and Home page "bcs460"? Nothing wrong with my old rig I have got some kick ass beer from it just want something better and one that can be mounted in the corner.

Yes, go electric! I'm all for the idea because converting to electric is on my to-do list for this year.

I haven't researched or selected a controller yet. I do BIAB so I only need the controller to handle the boil kettle - which also doubles as my mash tun.

Your controller build is looking good!
