Yes, so the 1 PID system is how I am going to go. With a $300 prebuild control for the Boil Kettle, I cant justify the extra $$ on the 2 PID Control.

So, the plan is -
1 PID/RTD monitering the mash temp at the exit of the HEX, controlling the element in the HLT.
2 pumps; 1 recirq the HLT water 1 Recirq the Mash.
2 110v outlets for the pumps
1 220 outlet for the element.

Will order the DIY Kit from eBrewSupply, and have him upgrade it to all push-button lighted switches. And will figure out how to wire it so the element can not be turned on with out the HLT Recirq pump running.

Not complaing, cnat wait to fire her up.

Sad part is there will be serious lag between getting all my toys and getting to brew, honestly, if I can brew before 2014 I will be surprised!

Is that a boil kettle with weldless fittings and a 50ft stainless wort chiller built in?!? Is that an electric heating element in there too?!?
