The microcontroller board doesn't need an interface board. Its interface is 0 to 5 volts directly into the ADC. My temp sensors will be thermistors powered by the board power supply, 5 volts and to the ADC will probably be 1 to 4 V.

Update. The steam boiler is ready to boil.

The microcontroller board arrived today. I got it shipped USPS. Its just like the pictures except the terminal strips don't have screws like the picture shows They have a 0.100" header, so no big deal. But screws would have been nicer.

I am probably not going to have time to work with it for a while though. Just saying.

Looks like a great stab at a functional design--I'm visiting all the local club members' set-ups with an eye to building my own some day--If it makes good beer, it was a success!

Keep me posted the microcontroller board development and the front end GUI programming.

I've been wanting to automagic some functions for a long time.

I cant wait to check out your source code!

Keep'on Truck'n! oh yeah, and Linux Rocks!

You got that right !

Just in case you missed it, I've built the Corny steam boiler for this project and I've tested steam mashing. I'll be too busy to work on the stand for a while, but I'm slowly piecing things together.
