This looks really great, hope this undertaking is fruitful for you. Are you planning on doing a 50a panel that can fire two elements at the same time? That is the direction I am headed for my three vessel HERMS system, I just haven't decided which direction to go (i.e. Brewtroller, BCS, Love cont. or PID). I am inherently lazy though, so if I could find it for the right price... I think the inclusion of temp probes/elements would be a nice touch. I haven't been to your website in a few days but I didn't remember seeing those there.

Workin on all of the above. First I want to have a 30a panel, the 50a will be a fair bit more expensive, min $300-$400 more likely. The first 30a panel should be complete in the next week if my last parts can be ordered Monday and brought in for the weekend.

I did find Camco elements which will go up in the next day or 2.
BCS went up this morning.
PIDs are still a while off. New test batch due to ship this week.

Any chance you're looking at carrying locking plugs and outlets? I'm looking to source 15 & 30A.

I would be interested in a Kal on the outside, maxed out din-rail on the inside kit with the option to deselect items I might already have. For instance I already have the enclosure, contactors and probes.

I'm very glad I found your site through this post. Sourcing all the necessary parts can get pretty overwhelming.

Can't wait to see what kind of kits you put together.

Just placed a small initial order for Pass & Seymour Twist lock plugs. Should have them in next week. I also have Camco elements in, but waiting on shipping materials, and a third new item for BCS fans that I'll add shortly.

I hope to have 2 kits up this weekend:
2 elements, 2 pumps, bcs controlled and 2 elements that is a 30a version of my own.
As well as a 2 elements, 2 pumps, PID controlled that likely will be similar to a 30a version of TiberBrew. I can also put up a 3rd kit with a Kal clone, similar function, different insides.
I also have the BCS model kit built, just waiting on the flanged outlets to finish and then brew a batch with it.

The target prices for the kits, with an included recommended wiring diagram AND enclosure, shipped, is under at $250, versus $300 if you bought all the pieces together. Likely, excluding the enclosure, the kits will sell for $175 versus $195. Keep in mind this is the BCS model, the PID model will be similar, but it has fewer LEDs and 2 way switches rather than 3-way. I'll get my butt in gear and try and get these up this weekend while I'm brewing some beer.

Once this all gets up, I'll likely go quiet on new items for a while.

Another look. Nearly completed BCS build. The guts will be similar in the PID version, minus a few things, and obviously completely different front.




One thought came up: Should I include wire and blade fittings in the kits, or not? I'm on the fence with this. All the wire I will supply will be black, and black. I can get it at a decent enough price to be better then going to Home Depot, but wife is against me stocking wire. It might have something to do with the fact that my day job has wire reels the size of small cars (some medium sized cars too).

what are you plugging the bcs into there and do you sell it? I need to power the bcs and router bridge and that looks small enough to fit in my enclosure

Do the prices you quoted for kits include the BCS itself?
