+1 I just bought another Y8610U kit and Pilot Burner for the Boil Kettle. That way I don't have to babysit the Boil. I love the way the Y8610U/Pilot Burner/PID controls the HLT temperature. It is nice to dial in whatever strike temperature I want and walk away for a while. I make use of the alarm relay in the PID to latch a loud buzzer to alert me when the strike water is up to temperature. I am going all automated so I don't have to babysit the whole thing, well, except adding grain and hops.
PS: Very nice build RonRock.
