I hate to be a bother, but did you ever get a wiring diagram? I have really enjoyed following your build

My nephew moved out of state so I never got him to draw up a schematic. I'll put some thing together from my hand written notes soon. (The PID wiring is right out of the instruction manual)

It looks like your water filter setup is what I'm going to go for, could you post more info on that setup please?

Well it's two inline home depot whole house filter housings. Ametek filter housings are old but may still be available. I posted the link early in this thread. The first filter is a simple 2 micron general filter and the second is a carbon block I get at the LHBS. I have two in-line ball valves to control flow thru the filters or divert it for washing down the kettles etc. For better pics and the link on the filters please look earlier in this thread.

Edit: Also I had to beef up any silicone hoses running the full pressure tap water. busted a hose and learned this the hard way.. So for that I now use Silbrade hose.. just a 6 foot run since that stuff is $$$

This system is a joy to use. It friggin nails the temps. The Blichman (thermometer in the pic below) is @ the bottom of my MLT, the PID (probe) is just to the right of that thermo and the big dial therm is the HEX out. The MLT delta is 2*f an I am stylin. Drinking my new DIPA called "RIP" cause it's a red IPA / I've been sharing my brews for about a year now with the staff an owner of a very nice restaurant near me. He has approached me now and wants to open a brew pub. So here we go again??
