Default Electric Brewtroller HERMS Build.....Complete!

First off I have to give a big thank you to everyone on this site. I started this project over a year ago, with planning and scrounging parts on ebay and there is no way I could have built my rig without all the great information on this site. After all the planning, I had decided to build a brewtroller controlled HERMS system that I was finally able to get up and running last Saturday. I decided to do a 10 gallon batch of a blonde ale. Surprisingly, everything went really well. I was able to maintain my mash temp consistently, reaching an efficiency of about 78%. Although everything went as planned, there are a couple things I'm going to change. I currently have a stainless immersion coil in the brew kettle that I think im going to change out to a plate chiller. The coil worked, but it takes up alot of room in the kettle and is difficult to clean. I also need to move my mash temp sensor out of the mash tun and in line with the fluid going through the HEX coil. Overall though I am very pleased with the results. Anyways on to the pictures....

Congratulations on finishing your system, and on your first brew! I like the cable runs you used.

Can you post a better picture of your control panel front?

+1 on a control panel pic and - if you have the time to design and post it - the schematic of the connections.
