Default Electric Rig complete. Video link.

is the video for the build. It's complete and making beer. Improvements and tweaks of course are still making it a work in progress, but You'll get the idea.

Built using an IBM computer case (gutted) as the control box. 2 Keggles, recirculating Mash through the BK. Welded 1" square stock stand, which turned out plenty heavy.

I've got to do a CIP today (brew day on Saturday got WAY too late to deal with it then) so I'll try to snap some pictures to add to this thread.

Thanks to all those who offered advice, and a HUGE thanks to PJ for his assistance in the Elec. Dept.

I love the idea of using an old cpu tower as a controller case. Consider the idea stolen!

Prost!
