You cannot quit this thread. No Fair.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to keep this old man's mind jumping. I do the drawings with great interest. They allow me to do mind jumps and figure out 'stuff' that will work for us (you).

Please keep us updated on your brewing successes. You are doing great so far.

great build thread!

My friend and I are both planning to build this and have already ordered all the parts.

Any chance you could post some more pics of the project box - specially the completed wiring and plugs?

Awesome! It's great to hear someone found this useful. I won't be able to take pics until Monday, but I will get that for you.

I'm sorry, my box is pretty sloppy, I'm not sure if these pics will help. It's pretty cramped and I made the mistake of using solid core wire, use stranded wire!

Here is a shot of the back and how I used a 12 gauge extension cord for all of the plugs.



And here are some shots of the sloppy wiring job.






Hope this helps some. Let me know if you have any questions!

And while I had the rig out taking pics I decided what the heck, brew day! I still have a few Brooklyn brew shop one gallon kits, perfect to test the viability of a one gallon batch on this setup.

It worked great! Mash and boil temps were reached really quick. I still boiled off .5 gallon in 60 minutes. The dimensions of my pot are what make a one gallon batch work. Most pots are wider and shorter. My tall skinny pot is important for my needs. Here are a few shots from my one gallon test brew, Summer Wheat.

Very cool info. Makes me wanna try it . Does anyone know if this element http://m.grainger.com/mobile/details/?R=15A569 would work? Looks like it draws the same volts and amps, but I am definitely not anyone you want playing with electricity.

jrb - you're a great help and an inspiration. the pictures are just what I needed!

I enjoyed the bonus brew session pics. that's pretty cool you can do 1 gallon batches. What a fantastic way to develop a recipe!

My stuff should be shipping out as early as today hopefully. I look forward to getting started when the parts show up.

cheers!
jackson


PS: P-J, I want to thank you as well for the excellent wiring diagram!
