That's just a bit nicer than what I started out with. And what I have now, come to think of it.

Good job, and welcome aboard!

Thanks for the replies gents. It was definitely fun building it and, so far, the brew has been excellent. Beermaker, I'll send you a PM regarding the controller.

Wow! that is very nice. Do you mind telling how much of an investment something like that would be??

Broux - appreciate the comments and the welcome. My wife complains that the dog gets more attention that she does.

Ian- The total was about $2500. That was doing pretty much everything myself and purchasing some of the more expensive items on eBay. If I had to do it again, I'd build a manual HERMS... the controller was a huge amount of design, build, and testing time and I still end up doing a lot of the brewing process manually. The "look cool factor" is pretty high but, in my opinion, manual would have been just as good (and less expensive).

I was wondering if it compared to the "brew sculptures" on morebeer.com. Those are manual but costs a good bit less than $2500. I've never brewed an all-grain batch but of course am very interested as I brew more. And being someone that goes a little overboard with new hobbies (my wife loves this features!) I am thinking of building a small brewery.
