I saw this for $30 at Home Depot today: http://www.quirky.com/shop/732

I'm assuming it uses load cells which I've previously read wouldn't work for measure a keg's volume as they deteriorate over...

"Little Joe's" in Grand Blanc. There are actually a few places around here that still have it on tap and have had it for a while so I assume they've gone through multiple kegs.

I would probably go with the one-wire DS18B20 temperature sensors. I use them in a number of projects (brewing and non-brewing) and they work pretty well. There is plenty of Arduino code out there...

For the floor, what about some commercial vinyl tile squares?

Home Depot sells it for about $0.80 / sq. ft and it comes in about a hundred colors. Check out the Armstrong stuff.

I imagine DME isn't cheap to ship either based on the weight but it seems like you could make some pretty solid beers with less work.

I think I'd classify "easier to keep clean" as "more functional" but I agree that largely it's aesthetics.

Now this is the way to polish a keggel

This forum never ceases to amaze me...

In version 2.0, maybe you drive a wheel inside the lower lip instead of a belt around the whole keg.

Nice work, how about a pic of the finished product?

Looks good.

Bonus would be if for storage it all fit in the tub with a lid on it.

I imagine you'd have to make the wire rack into two pieces to get that to fit.

I suspect you'd be hard pressed to find many willing to pay 1/3 of that.
