With your breakers - the double pole ones show two black wires coming out. Did you give up on standard wire convention (one red, one black), or is there a reason you are using a double pole breaker with only one hot leg split between both sides?

Otherwise, very clean panel. I couldn't bundle all my wires as nicely, that's for sure!

Good question. But yes, wired correct and done in black wire. More for gauge then color coding.

Test fired tonight in water and all ran. Now to learn the BCS 460, mount panel and brew a batch.

I sell garbage trucks and street sweepers. Spent plenty of time on the back though.

First BCS test and RIMS tube. I really dig how much you can do with the BCS.

And looking at the boil kettle, it must be well below sea level.
