Well, the madness has finally begun. I got clearance from SWMBO to begin my e-brewery build. The timing couldn't be better. I'd like to have it done in a couple months so that I can use it when the cold weather set's in. Right now I've been using a keggle and cooler MLT setup.
The plan is to do most of a Kal clone, with the following changes:
- 50A panel - to allow for back-to-back brews if needed
- Using the 50A kit from www.ebrewsupply.com
- Home-built vent hood
- a few other minor adjustments along the way
I'm not great at photos as I tend to just git-r-done more than I take photos. I'll try to post updates on a regular basis. It might be slow going for a few weeks as I'm committed to putting hardwood flooring in the living room and adding a shower to an already finished bathroom during the same time that I'm building this. (Don't ask - some things you just do to maintain a great marriage.)
This is going in my basement in my workshop. One of the biggest challenges is going to be moving my woodworking tools and figuring out how to utilize an already tight space for two purposes.
My order from http://www.ebrewsupply.com
arrived quickly and was well packed. Included were several large format color wiring schematics. I had a question about the purpose of some 'extra' indicator lights so I emailed Ryan. He replied within a few minutes on a Sunday afternoon. I'd say he's off to a great start in business. I can't say enough about my experience there.
