I can find no major flaw with your current design decision. Not how I opted to do mine, but you're not brewing on my panel and I'm not brewing on yours! On to fabrication!

I really admire all this camaraderie among brewers and builders. I am in the midst of building a system like this and am stumped by the panel and what I really need vs what i want. I am moving forward with my build slowly and love seeing all these schematics that P-J puts together. I am trying to use some of the drawings P-J did for badnewsbrewery and piece together a rims and multiple timers. Anyway thank you for sharing all your thoughts it keeps me going.

tovelo - this is a great board! Post up a thread about your build, as you get going, and I'm sure you'll receive all kinds of thought provoking feedback. Also, searching for RIMS in the electric forum should turn up some useful builds from other folks. Good luck!

Looks great. I would cut the sight glass so the top is below the rim. That way you can turn them over to dry out without breaking the glass.

Pooobah - cutting the sight glasses is on the list, for sure. Also still have to mount the pumps, and complete the heating element electrical wiring.

Parts for control panel should arrive mid-week, so I could be assembling CP next weekend!

So... my March 809 pumps came with 3' power cords on them... light reading on the interweb suggests that I should use a junction box to extend these cords to the control panel. Thoughts?

Just install a plug on the end of the cable and then use an extension cord of the length you need from there on.

Don't know where your control panel is going to be but I hard wired outlets on my stand for pumps and RIMS.
