Thanks everyone for the comments. I did my first brew on it yesterday and for the most part it worked great. However I do have a lot of tweaking I need to do. I did Ed's haus pale ale and ended up with right under 5 gallons in the fermentor with a 1.61. The bc worked great and the motor had no problem chewing through the grain. I filled the hopper to the very top before turning the motor on. Also, using the herms to chill the wort worked fairly well and the bk whirlpool left a nice little cone in the middle once I was done.

One more question on the mill...

Did all the linkage (?) piece come with the motor? I've got a BC also, and would love to motorize it. If you had to buy extra bits and bobs, could you specify what and where you got them?

Tanks!

I already had all the parts but I think mcmasters has them with these skews. I didn't use a keyway just the allen bolt without any problems.

3/8" hub no keyway 6408K133
1/2" hub with keyway 6408K713
Buna Spider 6408K74

I used a couple of large L brackets to mount the motor and put a metal junction box on top. I got the dpdt on off on switch from radio shack.
