So, should I place my wiring for an in place e-brewery in my garage in the wall before putting up ss sheet on the wall or should I get some ss conduit to use between the control panel and the plug in enclosure, just in case I move again? No real plans to move for a while though.

I'm a fan of external and readilly accessable wiring. If you ever want to make a change going into a wall will be a huge PITA. But if you place it in conduit you can move, remove, or reroute to your hearts current desire. So I'm in for the tastefull conduit, clips and boxes mounted in plain sight.

Run the pipe in the wall then cover it with your sheeting.

I like the thought of wiring in the wall to clean up the look. If you over size the conduit in the wall it would ease future rewiring or removal.

I'd opt for external since it is in your garage and I think conduit looks cool

All good thoughts. I'm leaning more toward in-wall electric, for the cleaner look and so I won't be tempted to hang stuff on my conduit. Plus getting ss conduit in kirksville mo isn't easy as going to home despot.

Outside the wall all the way. Come on, you're thinking that you'll never adjust equipment? That's just crazy talk!

Pipe it in the wall. Spot a few extra boxes and blank them off for future. Run 3/4 if you need extra room.

Ha ha, looks like a 50/50 split!

I ran conduit throughout my entire shop, I wish I had made it internal, to clean it up.

I don't know why you would run stainless pipe. It would be a bitch to bend and cut.
