MLT- My MLT will be an insulated 10 gallon rubbermaid cooler. It is equipped with a ball valve, domed false bottom, and a Kal style sparge arm.
BK- I haven't built my BK yet. But it will follow Kals basic design. I'd like for it to have a 4500w element, sight glass, ballvalve, tee for temp probe and dip tube. There will also be a wort input near the top of the kettle.
Brewstand- I think I'm going to straight up copy Kal's design to ensure I'll have enough room for later ventures.
Pump- I'll be using a march 809 equipped with an autovent.
Chiller- Due to my batch sizes and money restraints. I plan to use a 10plate chiller and a 25ft pre-chiller(water in the summer here is 90 degrees)
Liquid connections- All hoses will have type C camlocks where needed, and all valves will have either type A or type F camlocks attached to them.
Control Panel- Here comes the problem. I have been unable to locate a sound source for my needs. I live in an apartment(no modifying outlets/breakers). I have a 3 prong 30A power source. Heres the idea behind my panel.
As you can see I would like to have the 2 PID driven kettles and outlets for two pumps(in preparation for an eventual upgrade) all connected to on/off switches. The HLT will be driven by a 1650w low density element and the BK by a more powerful 4500w element. Both the probes will mimic kals designs, so the plugs on the panel will have to be RTD compatible and have 3pin XLR male inputs. The layout is negotiable since my electric knowhow is nearly nil. This is where I need the real help. If someone has the time I'd love to have a few things answered.
1. Do I have enough juice to power this rig? Everything doesn't have to be on at once, at the most it will be 2 pumps and the 1650w element or 1 pump and the 4500w element.(unless my power supply can handle everything)
2. Can I get a wiring diagram? I'm not really sure what guts I need, where to get them, how to put them together, ect.
Seriously, I would love details down to the most trivial point. (what gauge wire do I need for what connection? what about wire disconnects? How to program my PID's correctly. In what order would you build this panel? ect) I love drawings/sketches please include them if you don't mind. They help me visualize my goal so much more effectively and as a general rule help me to operate more safely. Oh, and the less soldering the better!
