just re-reading the thread and missed this ^^^!!!! wow!, what an excellent and generous offer. thank you. might take y up on that.
i have a friend who isn't an electrician, but knows what he's looking at. he'll come over and look at the box and see if we can do ourselves what is necessary safely. if not, i'll have to get on the phone for quotes.
so that'll be that for electric.
control box question, i've never wired before and can't read a schematic. would it be possible to learn the skill enough for a brew box somewhere? it doesn't seem so, looks like it takes real experience and knowledge.
i'm also working on designing the rig. 20G BK, 15G MLT, 20G HLT with herms/chiller. 1 pump to move things around. when i have a more solid grasp of equipment and flow i'm thinking i'll post and hope for feedback. i try to use the search function for information before asking questions so when i'm done we'll see what we came up with.
anyway, if anybody reads my ramble and has any thoughts they're willing to share i'd be grateful.
