I am just in the beginnings of Brutalizing my brewery. I have just moved across the country and had to split my old brewing set up with my brew-bro that I had bought everything with. I kept the SS conical and he kept the rest. Now that I have the chance to rebuild from square one I am looking at a brutus type system. Your build is current and affordable. Thanks for doing such a thorough reporting job here. You are an inspiration, and dare I correct Lonnie at this fledgling stage, that isn't just Blue, for all the old driveway garage folks out there that is the most beautiful use of "header blue" I have ever seen.

Thanks!

I've been getting some more requests for a wiring diagram of my control box. I'll try to put that together soon.

Today is brew day #2 on this system!

So how are you liking it? And did i see your name on another thread about the brewtroller? I have been reading so many threads about building I am loosing track here ;-) I'd love to hear about the brewtroller if you have some experience.

Thanks

The system is a joy to brew on! I'm not using a brewtroller, though I did consider going that route at one point.

Josh,

You have a really cool rig there. I'm starting down the same path and would really like to see the wiring diagram as well. One quick questions is when you go to manual temp control does the PID controller turn off completely or are you just bypassing the SSR on the PID? Great Job!

Awesome job, and an excellent report on the build. My brew brothers and I are planning a Brutus build in the near future and I think we'll definitely give your design a good close look.

Ok, here is the wiring diagram as promised. I apologize for not using proper symbols and notation. I really didn't feel very welcomed in either of the free schematic programs I tried so I just threw this together.

Dude,
Now that is my kind of wiring diagram. thanks for "throwing" that together. I am thinking your system is worthy of cloning for my purposes and budget. Wonderful information for me. This was the part of the Brutus I was most worried about and now it just doesn't seem that bad. Also glad to hear your rig is treating you well. Enjoy it!! I'm sure I will be back at you with more questions in a bit. Thanks!

I agree. I can actually read and understand that diagram. Thanks for that.
