Carefull with this the arcs that happen when pluging it in and unpluging with that much draw will wear your outlet/ plug out fast.

Honestly, I'll probably do one more brew before I build a controller. I've gone this far, might as well finish everything the correct way.

I did some work on my back splash. Here is a teaser shot until I get it finished and cleaned up:

Yeah that looks wicked, very nice job! The roughed wood adds a really cool touch.

Thanks guys.

Well, except for the controller, I am finished with the brewery!
Here are some pics to show the new addition brew table I made for some extra counter space.

With table out of the way:



With table in place for brew day:

In anticipation for my 1st ever all grain batch this weekend, I decided I needed to hurry up and build a controller for my mash. So I ordered the normal PID stuff from Auber, and went to my local hardware store to get the rest of what I needed.

I am building something similar to jkarp's C-Top Brutus 20's control, except I don't need a switch for a pump (just yet anyways)

Everything but the PID components ready to install:


Here is how it will be stup on brew day. Once again, it is just for mashing. I will simply unplug it, plug the element directly into the wall, and put the controller in the cabinet for the boil.

Your brew buddy in post #26 has that "What the hell are you doing?" look on his face.

Why not boil with the Auber in manual mode? Simple one button operation. Dial the percentage you want like the infomercial says "Just set it and forget it"

Congrats on the new brewery. Nice use of the space and materials!

Side note: noticed that you have a case of one of recent favorite beers: Sierra Nevada Celebration. Very tasty stuff.

Enjoy!
