In my opinion, you should have the GFCI breaker as far from the brewing area as possible. If you have it near the brewing area, and it gets hosed down with wort in an accident, you'll have live wires entering the spa panel whether the GFCI tripped or not.

Sorry about the delay in responding.

I'd recommend that you place the SPA Panel away from your brew rig. In other words, don't mount it on your brewery rig but use a reasonable length of cord from your control panel to the SPA Panel. Just mount it on the wall in your brew area. No?

Re: The E-Stop. It does not matter where you place it on your controller. You just want it in a spot where you can easily hit it with your hand when things appear to be going wrong in a hurry. After all, I call it an E-Stop which is Emergency-Stop.

Hope this helps & I'm wishing you the best.
