Completed some more wiring on the control panel and installed the tray in the box. I also wired up the relays and installed the heat sink. I hope the tags come today as I am traveling most of next week. I also scored a nice (free) sheet of aluminum diamond plate that is going to be the top and bottom tray of the stand.

Nice panel. Where did you get the disconnect switch? I have been looking for one, but I have been scared of the price.

The disconnect switch was already installed on the used panel I bought on E-bay. I ended up laying out everything else around that switch and the one light that was already there. Same reason the heat sink is on the side. The carry handle was already installed on top and it is great for carrying it around.

Yes 1.5" ferrule, installed on both the boil kettle and Sanke HLT. The MLT is a upside down Sanke with a 2" Tri-Clamp to 1.5" reducer.

I found a old GreenLee 1.5" panel punch on e-bay and it cut the perfect hole for the OD of the ferrules. If anyone needs it just let me know and I will send it to you, just pay for shipping.

I really like this setup as I will be able to remove the elements and be able to give the boil kettle a good scrubbing. It also lets me put the elements and cords away when not in use and reduce the chance of damaging something.

Looking good. What method did you use for attaching the sensors to the kettles? For the elements how long are the ferrules?

The temp sensors will be mounted following Kal's plans. Both the MLT and HLT are installed into 1/2 FPT Ts and the wort and water flow constantly across them. The BK is permanently installed into the side.

I have all the parts but have not installed them. I am trying to finish the control panel and then finish building the stand w/ pumps & CF chiller. It has been very hot here the last few weeks so I have been doing as much as I can in the house.

I have tried two different ways of coiling the 1/2 SS tubing for the HLT and have kinked it both ways. Out of everything this has been the biggest PITA.

How are the TC heater elements working out? Did everything assemble easily? I have been eyeing these for the e build I am planning. Any chance of getting a few details pics of the interior with the cap removed?

Thanks!

I will post some pics when I get home. They were a breeze to put together. It took 5-10 minutes total and they really look great. You just have to be willing to drop the $$$.
