My New 1BBL Electric Brewery
 
1 Attachment(s)

I'm running this in an EHERMS setup with 2-5500w elements in the HLT and BK. Everything is controlled by a BCS-460. In the near future I will be properly insulating and finishing the kettles with a wood plank trim. I did my first brew on Tuesday and everything went according to plan. Took about an hour to get from 55 degree water to 170 degree strike water. It also took about an hour to go from 165 degrees to full boil. Once at full boil I was able to maintain a rolling boil with one element completely on, and the other at 65% duty cycle. All said and done this was about an $900 upgrade from my previous 3 keg system. My new March AC-5B Nano Pump didn't arrive in time for the brew and it took almost 40mins to transfer 35 gallons 10ft to the fermenter.

4 SS Drums -$500
4 5500w elements - $80
4 locking 240v 30A plugs - $72
30' of 6/3 wire - $50
SS fitting and valves - $80
Welding Services - $100
Hot water tank stand - $30

I just hope this first batch turns out good as 22oz of Simcoe/Amarillo cost almost as much as my grain.
