How to build a control panel
 
Hi everyone!

I get emails from forum members every day asking when my control panel writeup will be done, so I'm happy to announce that my "how to build a brewing control panel" article is now complete!

Even with all the pictures done for over year now this took me a stupid amount of time to write, close to 200 hours over the last 3 weeks.

See: http://www.theelectricbrewery.com/control-panel-part-1

October 22: Part 2 is now online as well, making the documentation complete!

Hope it helps someone!

Wow! Phenomenal! The instructions are super, especially giving details for each part and where to obtain them.

Outstanding!
This has got to stand out as the most epic control panel (Edit: BREWERY) in both function and design. It literally convinced me that I needed to go electric. Seriously :mug:

Bravo Kal! Impeccable documentation.

I don't even brew electric but this is worthy of a PROST!
Thank you for sharing

PS... Is there way to print out the full documentation of your control panel build that you have written up on your website? I am curious as this would be amazing piece of information to have on hand for my future conversion to Electric Brewing.

Thanks!
Let me know if you find any mistakes (even typo's) or things that aren't clear. I'm sure there must be a ton. My eyes are glazed over from having read it too many times.

Afraid not, sorry! Viewing it online helps pay for the dedicated server I have to pay for to host the content. If everyone printed it out and walked away, it wouldn't last very long.

Kal - big thank you. There are several people on this board that seem to always contribute really incredible content and you are one of them! I look forward to reading it and learning.

Freaking superb dude! Look forward to the following sections.

Kal, you really are an HBT MVP. I don't think I could find the time and resources to build a rig like this; let alone document it the way that you did. Expect a lot of people to follow in your footsteps.

Do you plan on designing a control/information panel for a gas driven brew system? Or could this be used as is?
