Got a lot of my parts in, I'm so close to my first all grain electric brew day. It should be the worst beer ever, but I don't even care, I just wanna eBREW!


I'll take more pictures as I progress through the control panel build.

Is that two small ssr's w heat sinks and one giant heat sink ? If so, why so many. Just asking because I am a few steps behind you. Do you care to share some info on where you bought your switches and lights?

hey... looks great. I just bought my Auberins stuff today.

Do you know the depth of the PID (I got the SYL-2352 ). They take up 48 x 48mm on the panel, but not sure how long they are.

I'm scared to even touch it. I'll be using a cordless jigsaw with a fine tooth blade. I really want to use 1/16th DIN punches but I don't have the extra $500 to spare for 4 holes.

I'll be using a 22.5MM punch for the lights and switches

No it's just 2 small 40A SSR's that came with their own heatsinks. I purchased the large anodized external heatsink from TheElectricBrewery.com because you can't beat the deal.

I'm pretty sure they're spec'd at 88MM deep. Let me measure inches....wow 4.25 inches. Mounted depth is 4". Thats over 100MM. The SESTOS PIDs must have been 88MM.
