Drilled and mounted components for the ferm/keezer on the back plate last night. I got a used hoffman 12x10x6 box for $25 shipped.

I am in the process of building almost the same system so I can't wait to see your progress.

Finally had a chance to finish the ferm/keezer controller. It was a tight fit, but pretty happy with the results. If anyone else plans on using dual DC power supplies make sure they are grounded together. You will save yourself some time troubleshooting, trust me.



Starting the brewery controller this w/e. Will post as I go.

Looks good. Another possible ground issue is the ground terminals on the bcs for the probes need to be connected to the overall ground loop too. Someone on the bcs forum helped me out with that, i was getting zig zag temp readings before hooking that up.

Started work on the Brewer part of this build. Used a ideal carbide hole cutter which worked great. Slow and lots of cutting oil.

That looks great. I'd like one too! One question though..... those holes look much too big for pellet hops and even too big for leaf, are yoiu going to add a screen to them to keep the hops out of the fermenter?
