Default The "U-Brew Mark One"

Here it is finally finished, build pics will follow shortly tho I must admit I was a little lazy documenting the build. It is powered by a Brewtroller 4 Pro board, and I used Blackheart's control panel as a model.

That is a Rocking rig. Do you like having the sink in the middle?

That's sweet. What was your cost for the stainless table?

I haven't brewed on it yet as I have to run a 220 line from the box in my cave to the brew kitchen in the next room, The sink does double duty as I have the cooling lines plumbed right into the side walls of the sink and the plan is to fill the sink with ice and water to run the plate chiller. The cost on the table was $275 at the scrap yard, and I gotta tell you guys to check out the scrap yard as I got this for scrap weight price and they had five or six to choose from.

I'm surprised we don't see a lot more triple commercial sink units turned into whole brewing systems.

Am I correctly counting FOUR March pumps? Geez, automation is overkill.

Very nice! You'll love the BrewTroller software. Do use the sink as one of the brewing vessels or is it just a sink? Have you posted this over at the BrewTroller forum?

The red LED's between the PID displays are wired directly to the SSRs so that they come on every time the burner gets energized so that I know how often they are cycling. I also installed a green LED right above the key and wired it to the heartbeat so I know every thing is OK (and the flashing light is cool)
