Thanks for the comments guys!

I'm back from traveling, and back to work on the brewery! Last night I completed the panel, and mounted it in the brewery. Everything is tested and working properly, PIDs and Timer are programmed, and it's time to start working on the kettles!

Completed interior wiring, both SSDs firing.

Man, that is wicked cool.

I wish we could have basements here in Texas, so I wouldn't have to sacrifice my garage for a workspace like this.

What's the deal? Dig 12' down and you hit oil?

Yeah, but then the oil leaks into your basement.

Seriously, though, you hit the bedrock in my back yard if you dig more than about 3 feet.

Today I completed the part of the build I have be dreading most; the 6" hole in the block wall. All things considered, it wasn't horrible, but I'm certainly glad to be done! 3.5 hours, start to finish. Came out great!

My hood design is a little different than most. In my layout, the fan will mount directly to the hood, and exhaust directly through the wall. No turns, and a total length of 8" of 6" duct. Should be pretty effective. I'm building a prototype hood out of 2" foam board next week, and will post photos when I get it installed.

The tools required for making the hole in the block - not shown is the hammer drill the bit goes in.


Unfortunately, my block is textured on the outside, so step 1 was creating a flat area with my brick hammer.


As far as I went from the outside.


Pilot holes on the inside.


Daylight!


Installed view - outside.


Installed view - inside. (the electrical probe is just propped in there to keep the duct round as the foam cures)

Great build, and digging the San Tan glass. Keep the pics flowing.
