Hey folks! I wanted to get some professional opinions on my new rig schematic, so here it is.
Oh, and I forgot to translate it from Portuguese to English, my bad. It should not be a problem though, and by the way bomba = pump, água = water and TC is a plate heat exchanger
The full schematic:
Getting the strike water ready:
Recirculating mash and HLT trough heat exchanger to keep mash temp:
Vorlauf (it shouldn't be necessary, but I want to be able to do it):
Dumping the hot break:
Chilling the wort and sending it to the fermenter:
If you're going for total automation anyway, you might look into using a common transfer manifold or two and plumbing everything into that/those. I've seen some pretty cool systems using that technique and it strikes me that many fewer valves and a lot less piping were involved...
