Default Three E's Electric Brewery Build

It's been a long time in the works but I finally have made some progress on my build.

The panel is about 3/4 done

Panel to do list:
Wire the switches and lights and LED's on the panel cover
Attach Brewtroller LCD
Install and connect 2A breaker for estop circuit
Install and connect temp sensor wires
Install and connect pressure sensor wires
Install 25 pin sub-D



Breakers, SSR's, relay board, Brewtroller board, and power supply


Receptacles, to the right are the holes for the XLR connectors I'm using for my temp and pressure sensors, and on the far right is the sub-D25 which will connect all my valves and DC components to the panel.


Contactor, ice cube relay for estop, contact blocks. Bare wire on right is for the 2A Breaker for estop circuit.


Front of panel. 5500W element switch for HLT, selector switch, 5500W element switch for BK, 3500W element switch for HEX coil
3 Pump switches in middle.
Bottom shows switches and LED's for motorized ball valves.


Bottom of panel with receptacles for 3 elements, 3 pumps, stir motor for HLT, pressure and temp sensors, and DC control.


Heat sinks for SSR's


Inside of front panel (Needs a lot of work here)


Inside of panel after a little wire clean up.

Still have a lot to do but I'm hoping to be running some tests by New Years and brewing shortly after.

Keggles are all soldered up and ready to go. I'll be constructing a stand out of leftover lumber until I get the time and money for a proper stand.

Special thanks to EVERYONE who helped me in one way or another. I hate to list names since I know I'll leave someone out.

BREW ON!!!!

I know this is asking a lot, but you didn't happen to do a wiring diagram, did you? Even a back-of-the-napkin rough sketch? I know my system will be nothing in comparison as I'm not even looking at the valve set-up initially, but...

That looks like a Brewtroller and the associated 16 relay board. Very nice.
