Wow. I think I'm in love!

Great looking rig, and it seems like it would be very efficient and easy to use. I'm jealous as well as very impressed!

Thanks Yoop I just finished it last night I can't wait to brew with it, it will be nice to have the mash temp dead on the whole mash time with out messing with it at all.

Very nice.... Where did you get the switches from? Are they 120V or 12V flipping relays? I've been looking for some 120V/15A switches with that exact look, "RatShack" has some 120V/15A switches, but they're not that style.

Thanks Pat.

Pat
I am going to use the same RIMS tube (from freddyb), I'm curious about a few things.
Does the 1/2" tubing slip over the fittings on the rims tube well? What did you use for the thermocouple mounting? Can you post a pic of how you plumbed it? I am assuming a tee. Did you use the 2" RTD from Auber?
Thanks in advance,
-Ben

I think that Front Panel Express would be cool to use and would look great. I've never used them though.
