Not bad for a basic electric brewing system attempt, somewhere between a BCS 460 and a Brewtroller platform for capability without level sensors.

It looks to be in the same class as a Brewtroller with pressure sensor, but is missing the needed valving that others have used. There are other gas fired and electric automated systems that are more advanced than this setup appears.
Touch screen control is not new, others have built applications for all in one panels, and I have a 4 Yr old system that is quite a bit ahead of this that runs on a touch screen application.

My hat's off to the guy for getting his employer to pay for the brewery upgrade. That's a pretty sweet perk.

Pretty resourceful whoever he is. That's how I'd like to spend my work day
