I've been acquiring all the electrical tid bits needed to get my E-build going and now its time to get a move one. It will be a single tier 3 vessel build with a hot liquor, mash tun, and boil kettle. The initial build will only have one pump and I will continue to batch sparge for now... having said that, I believe in planning ahead so the control panel will be built for two pumps for future fly sparging.
The system will be powered by 220 from an unused dryer outlet. I am using a 4 prong 220v/30A cord with built in in-line GFCI
The control panel is largely based on Kal's design. I am also adding light and exhaust fan control. The temps wil be controlled by two Auber PIDs with RTDs. It may be over kill but i went with 2 5500 watt LWD elements. I am only doing 5 gallon batches at the moment, but again... future proofing.
Ironically I finally had some time to work on it today (new baby takes priority ) just measured out and began drilling the holes in the bottom. I may start checking eBay for some greenlee punches as the metal is bending a bit making the holes difficult and sloppy. Also, anyone have any ideas on making the 2in holes for the 220 outlets.
