Good luck!
Thanks for the insight, Kal, I really appreciate it. I'm going to have to agree with everything you said. I really would like to splurge on the Blichmann kettles, but I just can't afford it right now. However, I will most likely plan on upgrading to those in the future just because they are such a superior product.

I'll second that: The Electric Brewery has been a huge inspiration, so a big thanks to Kal and all the effort he put into documenting the build. I think designing my control panel has been the most fun part of this planning process, even though it'll be the last component

Spellman, that's really where I'm at right now: trying to understand the pros and cons of all the options so I don't have regrets as soon as my build is done. Since I can't afford the Blichmanns right now, I want to make sure I'm going with the best option I can on my budget.

Thanks for the feedback, everyone! It's been a huge help.
