Thank's again for the kind comments! Continues to be a work in progress. I've got 42 gallons in the pipeline and brewing 12 more this weekend! I Learn more every time.

Great looking rig. How do you have your BCS system wired up for monitoring and brewing?

I only use the BCS locally directly connected to a PC and in semi automated modes. The BCS resides in the automation enclosure mounted up underneath the table. I have the BCS set up to sound a buzzer when user input is needed and or go into standby modes if there is trouble. The BCS & mechanical switches on control panel can control the pumps, burners, buzzer, lighting.There is also an orange push button that is used to put the system on pause if needed. The panel switches for pumps and burners have off, auto or on positions and have priority over automation. There is also a key switch on the panel that kills the power to everything including the BCS. The BCS also directly controls the temp in two fermenters activating heat or compressor as needed. I can give you any more specifics if you like? Here is a picture of my brewing session today with my custom BCS graphical interface representing my system.

Ok, seriously, you're sick in the head. This is, bar none, the craziest(dare I say most expensive) brewden/mancave/shiny place I've possibly ever seen on the internet(and we all know the internet is a crazy place). I don't even care to know the pricetag, even with the good deals you got. I aspire to have the space/time/knowledge/coin to do something like it myself. Cheers to you, man.
