BTW, I drew the diagram in your linked thread. If you would want to have a wiring diagram for your setup, think about what you wish to accomplish and let me know. Also, please describe your system as I'm not familiar with it. I'll see what I can come up with that will help you.
I've posted a lot of diagrams on this forum. There might be one now that would work for you.
I've noticed how many you've helped on the forum and I've been lurking on the e-builds threads. johnodon and I have swapped emails about getting together on a brew day to see his system in action.
I'm picking up a used Sabco Brew Magic
tomorrow. It's on older version, but essentially, it's a NG or LP fired, three kettle, two tier system with a RIMS mash tun.
I'd like to eliminate the NG/LP burners and go all electric and maintain the RIMS aspect of the mash.
I bought an Auber SYL-2352 and some other components from another forum member to start the build. I figured it would be useful in either the e-BIAB system or in converting the Sabco system.
As far as what I want...I'll have the MLT, MLT, and BK and as stated, I want all electric. I don't think I need to go to the level of detail as found on theelectricbrewery.com with volt/amp measurements.
I'm new to all grain and I'm open to suggestions when it comes to the electric setup as well. I'll have to see what the temp control system is like for the RIMS that's currently on the system and decide whether I want to keep it or if I'll scrap it and build one control box for the entire system. It uses NG currently to do the large increases in temp for the MLT and electric for the temp maintenance. BK and HLT are also NG fired.
If I keep the temp maintenance control present, I'll need a PID for the HLT and I'd think just a switch to turn heat on and off for large steps on the MLT and for boiling in the BK. I believe the system only has one pump to move water/wort.
If I scrap the current RIMS system control, I'll need PIDs for that and the HLT and I suppose if I wanted to get crazy, I could use PIDs for the heat on the MLT and BK to control the power output to those elements.
