Interesting to see how control panels have changed over the last 4-5 years.

I started the same thread back in 2008 right here:

http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f11/show...l-panel-95301/

If you want a blast from the past, took a look at some of those panels.

Bad news
your lit up logo on the control panel is way cool looking. What technology is that and where did you get it made?

It uses a combination of lasers, holographic panels, and virtual reality.

Wait. No. It was actually much easier than that, and I made it all myself. Here's the basic write-up.

I can answer any questions you have on that thread, to keep from stalling this one.

BadNews...is that black keggle painted? It looks too shiney to be one of the rubber coated ones. I would love shiny black keggles to match my black brewstand!

Yes indeed - a few coats of black BBQ paint. Didn't have the patience for polishing. PM me for some lessons learned.
