Gotcha.

Got a load of stainless fittings and weld less parts in today. Waiting on some KO punches from a friend. Gonna brew my last brew Saturday on the propane rig then start cutting the keggles.

Update:

State surplus had a Dell Touch Screen All-in-one for $25. Score! Powered up and works, has a windows 7 fresh install and wiped clean. Good to go! This will connect to the BCS and run the brewery.

Powered up



Son helping me get in setup and on the network.


50amp spa disconnect in and awaiting panel from ebrewsupply.com. Ryan has really been spot on helping me figure all parts of converting to electric brewing.

Right now now it's desktops for 10$ and monitors for 10$. Mostly Dells and of various design. But about 200 of each. Grabbed a Mac, but put it back. Saw this.

Just come to SC. Right beside the airport.

Quick update, less ebrew and more eferment. Had the afternoon off yesterday so I did an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Amber and Beirmunchers Blond on the old system. Got the fermenters hooked up to the Johnson controllers. These will be replaced and controlled by the BCS.





Panel goes in this weekend along with keggle conversion.
