Please let me know.

And as always - click on the image to see and save a full scale diagram that is printable on Tabloid paper (11" x 17")



Anyway, I hope this helps you.

That would be it exactly. Thanks for all the help. Your drawings made it much easier to get it all up and running.

I am doing the first brew next weekend to celebrate my new set up and the new gift I got from my wife.

Going to brew an imperial Irish Red to put in it.

You are very welcome & I'm glad that I got it all worked out for you. A decent diagram helps a lot when implementing a build or making changes later on.

Does anybody have a PDF or WORD document of that wiring diagram? Whenever I try to print it from here it is too fuzzy to read the detail?

I just set it up as a Microsoft Word document but I am fairly sure that it will not help you as the document specifies my printer which I'm sure you do not have. Also the document is set to print on 11" X 17" paper. It prints perfectly on my system.

Is your printer capable of printing 11" X 17" documents (Tabloid Paper)? If it is, you can easily print the picture straight out as the JPG image I posted. The image also prints as a JPG file perfectly on my system.

BTW - You get to the large image file by clicking your mouse on the image that is displayed in my forum post. The large image will open in a new Windows display frame on your computer. Save it from there.

Please let me know.

I haven't had an update in a while. I am ordering labels this week to finish off my panel. still struggling with the mounting arm design, I am thinking about ordering a TV mounting arm instead of building one.

Any thoughts?

I still haven't decided on a mounting system for the RIMS tube or the control panel. Tomorrow is the first test brew to figure out if everything is dialed in. hopefully I will get an idea on the kind of mounts as well. Doing an Imperial Irish Red that will be barrel aged in a Rye whiskey barrel.

So the first run with the new system went really well. We shaved nearly an hour off of the brew process by using the RIMS tube and the MLT burner to get up to mash temperature. We did the same process when we were getting up to the boil.

The RIMS tube placement was perfect. The only issue is the wort loss when moving the hoses around.
The overall efficiency went from 75% to 98%. The OG was supposed to come in at 1.063 and came in at 1.087.
