You will absoutly love that set up... I know I do mine...
the only thing that would make it better is a floor drain in the basement.

First brew day last night. Still figuring out all the quirks, and cleaning proved to be a chore!

Any tips on cleaning an E-HERMS system without taking everything apart?

Great job! First class all the way. As for cleaning, I suggest letting your setup clean itself as much as possible. Scrub your BK and drain it, then fill it with a PBW solution and circulate through your pumps until everything sparkles. Dump, give it a final rinse and dry it with a towel.

Someone mentioned using a shop vac to clean out the mash tun. I have a SS tub and wheels on mine so it works perfect for getting all of the little bits out without having to take everything apart! Then just wheel the spent grains to your garden and compost them.

HappyLoon: How are you powering your control panel? I couldn't help but notice that the voltmeter reads between 208-211V which is *really* low for a 240V 1-phase outlet.

Hey Kal,

Currently we only have a 220v outlet there, but I think it's a 30amp connection. Is it as simple as swapping it out for a 240v if the amperage is high enough?

To be honest none of us are that knowledgeable about the wiring, we had someone else do it. We did notice everything takes a bit longer to work though, especially the pumps. Would that be the reason?

I also noticed the amazon link on your site is to a 250v outlet. I'm guessing 250v is Ok?
