Just remember, who you're going to be relying on for support. Auber has great support.

If you're fine with that, then great. However, what hasn't worked to date? What has changed since you built your panel the first time?

Thanks stlbeer,

I agree that I will need support, so I think I'll be sourcing some parts from Auber after all. I just caught your own E-Brewery thread and subscribed so I can go back to it! I want to do what you did, but go RIMS without the HERMS HLT.

I think I can modify P-J's electrical diagram that you posted, but if he's listening by any chance, I'm looking for a diagram that's 30A from a mini panel with a GFCI breaker and a dryer outlet that can run a PID-controlled RIMS with a 1000w element for the MT and a 4500 or 5500 element in the Boil kettle. The BK doesn't necessarily need a second PID, I guess. Maybe just a rotary(?) switch that controls the amount of power by percentage to the BK element. 100% to reach boil, then dial it back to maintain the boil.

If anyone has seen such a diagram, please link me, because I haven't.

Thanks for all the support, I really appreciate this community!
