Hmm... OK - Will you be doing double batches at all or heating water in the HLT while boiling?

Nope. I'll heat it once before mashing and then again before gravity sparging. BK has 5,500 element and HLT has 4,500 element.

Perfect... a single Auber 2352 will work fine. I'll see if I can come up with a schematic for you.

Thanks! Getting the equipment piece-by-piece together was tough enough, I am totally lost when it comes to electrical work (I'll outsource it but need to know what to tell the contractor).

Here's the BOM formatted better - remember, there is no indicator lights or bling in this schematic whatsoever - this is the bare minimum.

Wow, that's amazing. A huge thank-you. Do you have the BOM in Excel?

As for wires/plugs/etc., I'll let the electrician source it locally. I have 1 dryer outlet, which is rather far away from the brewing spot, so I will need some sort of an extension cord that will handle the load.
