I finally finished the build this weekend! There are a few minor things I want to add/fix still but she works! I made an milk stout on the maiden voyage. Overall it went very well but there is certainly learning curve to optimizing the process. It's the first time I've brewed with pumps and the whole priming thing is annoying but I think I'm getting the hang of it.

Looks slick! You digging all that work space under your panel? I really like your element housing, looks good and the additional light falls into the category of "Bling-bling!" (Chicks dig blinking lights)

Loads of nifty ideas. What is the screen and what software is running on it?

Thanks man! Yea loving the extra space. I used it a ton more then I even thought I would. It was a beautiful resting spot for my beersmith brewing steps printout, but doubled as a weighing station for hops, additives and more. Thanks again for your help.

Thanks for the comments, and a special thanks for all your info along the way. Your help and Kal's site were the 2 most critical pieces of my success. It wasn't all that long ago I had no clue what words like contactor, SSR, DIN, and heat sink meant. You helped me answer a lot of questions and gave me some extra confidence to carry on with the build. It also gave me rationale to spend a lot more money (I don't thank you for that) haha.
Like I said I have almost no experience with any manual labor-like activities or electricity. Most of me can't even believe this thing works! Thanks again man!

It's very high tech software made by one if the software engineers for apple... No no just kidding. Its a simple digital photo frame. I have the photo frame switch between 2 images my brewery logo and my internal wiring diagram. I wanted to add something different besides a power on/off light and thought this was cool and simple enough.
Thanks for the nice comments.

Finished brew number 2 on the new system. Brewing itself is a blast and I hair my gravity. The cleaning process still sucks, no matter how great the equipment.
