Ebrewsupply 30a 2 element / 2 pid kit
 
Just received their kit and am looking for layout options. Anyone have a picture of a control panel using this kit?

Guess I'll be the first!

Haven't done it so I'll be watching your progress. Good luck.

I've been trying to go to ebrewsupply.com since your initial post without any luck. Seems like their site is down for some reason.

I'm trying to find out what the kit contains and what it's all about.

Yup... The net has been overrun with blocking traffic and I have not been able to log into this site for the last several hours. (Check the evening news. It's on there tonight as well.)

I'm at a point that I have no idea how to help you out..

Sorry...

BTW: I'm still not able to see your referenced "Stuff"...

Again - sorry. I tried. Wishing you the best.

That sucks that the scum bags that get off on taking down sites targeted Go-Daddy. HBT uses them and that was why they were down for a couple hours.

Yea I heard about that this afternoon after I posted a response.

I fell victim to GoDaddy DNS failure. CoalCracker, I based parts of my build on Tiber_Brews here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f170/ele...d-help-183775/.
I have had a few other server issues, but those were on my side earlier. I'll be making changes soon (new server being setup now). Other changes will include more images, and with any luck a Wiki or Forum soon.

My idea behind the DIY kits though, is more like a DIY kit from NewEgg, leave the creativity to you on how to lay out your panel just as NewEgg doesn't tell you how to build their computer packages. As always though, my email is available, and I'm happy to help.

Here's how I setup the 30a BCS kit design that I've built as a means to make sure I have everything needed to build these as well as verify wiring. I will likely try and build a PID unit when I get more enclosures in, but the soonest it looks like that will be is mid October.

My Own brewery, 50a BCS laid out on a much too big of an enclosure.
