Okay, not exactly. I'll probably cut the RIMS and one pump.

My only question is about the lid on the boil kettle. With the chiller on there, it looks like you will have to keep the lid on. How are you going to get around sanitizing your chiller coil and keeping the lid off?

B
You should take a look at the Simple Brewery. It is exactly what you are describing. 2-tier HERMS with one pump.

The chiller will be sanitized with starsan in a spray bottle. This system chills so quickly with the ice water in the MLT that DMS is not an issue. With the Simple Brewery, we were below 140º in about 2-3 minutes.

Where did you find the rubberized kegs?

LOL! Good answer. I really like the idea of the rubber as insulation for an e-rig...

The beginning of the thread is now updated with some work on the control box. Slowly finding a bit of time to work on my projects.

That's some pretty clean wiring, nothing like my rat's nest on my rims toolbox. I may have to rewire mine one day but for now it works. Glad to see you are using a socket for the power input.

I am not sure I am $17 glad, but it does look nice.

20 amp. 120 VAC.

McMaster #8036K2


In the grand scheme it isn't much, but compared to $4 for a regular outlet it is a lot. Those small upgrades add up quick as I am sure you know.
