Default My 2.5 Vessel E-Herms build

I'm starting my new brewery build. It is going to be a hybrid of sorts, I will be using the Brutus-20 method with a dedicated E-Herms heat exchanger using a 3 gallon corny keg. I started getting the electronics in, but I'm still looking for a control panel that I like.

I went with the cheaper JLD612's from lightobject.com, so I will have to change this diagram again.

The future HEX: the element will be through the bottom.

I'm still polishing the kegs... more pics and probably plenty of questions to come.

Yes, it was from this thread. I hope I didn't ruin it too bad.

some progress


waiting for the epoxy to dry on the contactor and terminal strips and also have to install the fan, SSR, plugs for power in/out, add the 12v transformers for the pumps, and wire it all up. I also installed the fuses, pics of that later.

Thanks, Harbor freight <$20.
Everything fits pretty well, I still have to find 2 more wall worts for the 12v pumps.

Well, I thought I just finished. I plugged it in and everything worked for a few moments, then it blew the breaker. Now every time i plug it in the breaker blows right away. None of the fuses blew. What could it possibly be?
