I am gathering pieces for my electric build and need to start making decisions on my control box. This is darn near exactly what im looking for http://brewmation.com/Panels.html $1699 plus $174 for GFCI. with shipping and such it will be over $2000. Are there other pre built options? If not what would be the cost aprox to build something just like the Brewmation? Mind you $2000 does not seem too bad since it includes elements and everything else for that matter.

$1420 for that kit but you need to assemble it and also does not come with temp probes, power cord, heating elements, or GFIC. Is a nice kit though no question.

OK just a little update.... I decided to get my panel built by Oli at SCCS www.mashinganddistillerycontrols.com and must say he did an amazing job! Its a work of art and he built it to my specs, he is also a wonderful person and great to do business with. Definately recommend buying from them!
