Default My electric system ver 6

I think I am getting closer to my ideal set-up. Brewed this past weekend and hit 84% with no issues at all. Hit the OG dead on. I was able to maintain my set point on my mash almost exactly the whole mash



Green button on top advances BCS to next state. Red buttons on the sides interrupt the heating elements in case pumps lose prime.

Both keggles are set up with bottom drains.

I'll take a few more so you can see the heat exchangers, pumps and rolling cart.

what flips your relays... a board, or laptop?

I use the bcs-460 to trigger the relays. Within the bcs system you can use external switches to make the unit behave differently. It makes for a really slick system.

During the sparge, the float switch turns the sparge pump on and off so I only have to focus on the flow rate going into my kettle.
