I'm over in Duluth. It's already snowed a couple times so more than half the year I wouldn;t want to be brewing outside.

Good point. I had not thought of this. I will be putting a face over that so it will be covered. Maybe I will try to seal it up some how. I do like though that the pump fan will be moving air around the heat sink for the SSR though.
The mail man finally came today so I was able to get all my stuff put together and wired it up. I was able to turn it on and play a little bit. not much though as it wasn't all sealed up.
As you can see I think I need to set the input to RTD instead of a thermocouple. it's reading out 1,254 degrees F. haha
I'm hopefully finishing this whole project up tomorrow so I can do a real test run.
