What size is that box and were did you get it? Thanks looking good so far, I am just behind you on gathering the stuff for my build as well. Good luck.

Box is a stainless nema, 24"w x 30"t x 12" d. A little over kill but is was free, and as another put it earlier "room to grow".

I think thats his boil kettle

Too small an enclosure can be frustrating. You certainly won't need to cram things in that one. Looks like you're off to a good start.

Productive day. Ran conduit for the most part. Still need to pull the hammer drill out for a few screws, but should be ready to run wire later tomorrow.


Drilling through the brick from the garage.


Also added plumbing for water into the garage, no hose is my goal here.


Conduit on the outside. Since this part is visible from the street, I wanted to do my best to conceal it for HOA purposes. (Didn't ask permission)


The GFCI spa panel to the left, then into the old clunker breaker box on the right. Not the prettiest job, but should be good.

More work today. Conduit is in. Wire is hot, just have to flip the breaker on.

New breakers are in.


The spa panel is wired up.


Test mounted the panel. Thinking it is going to have to be closer to the garage door side, since spacing is tight in the corner. My stand is potentially 42" wide, and the whole currently is only 38" or so.


For those pondering a 42" brew stand. The setup is a 2 tier setup, but sort of inverted. I'm putting my HLT low, and pumping up to my BK and MT.

what is the benefit of having the HLT lower? you would still need two pumps right?

Not a problem. I already have a pair. As I mentioned earlier, I am simply upgrading my propane single tier, therefore I already had a few things. I got a pair of chugger pumps last year.

There really isn't much benefit to the lower HLT, except for space for me. I have a very limited amount of space to work with, and putting the HLT low is practical since it isn't the one that I am constantly going into. Only thing the HLT has is the HERMs coil.

Funny part is I say upgrade, but considering the cost so far, I hate to think what it would cost me to do all new.
