Been looking at this thread (http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f170/sug...00/index6.html
) And getting some great ideas for my build.
Biggest problem is I do not have 240v in my garage so I need to keep it to 120v. Was tossed up between a PID and BCS 460 build. I think the PID is going to be cheaper and simpler to get running to start off with.
Any recommendations on parts before getting started? parts look good? taking from that build I posted.
Box: Auber ins Model: Pbox16
PID Auber ins Model: SYL-2352
Probe: Auber ins Model: PT100-L601/2NPT W/ panel mount
SSR: Auber ins Model: MGR-1D4825 and heat sink
Element: Camco 02583 4500W 240V
I'm just in basics stage here, but i guess using the PID's alarm for too high a temp would be good. Don't want to de nature the little eaters! A panel kill would be good, simple pump on/off switch with light, Main power light, And a Heat on/off indicator light with switch.
