I'm working on my plan for an automated system based around a BCS brain.
Originally, I was going to mount everything on the brew stand and just plug the brew stand into the wall when it was time to brew.
Conversely, I'm now thinking about mounting all of the electronic guts on the wall and then just plugging the brew stand into power cords coming from the box on the wall. I like the idea of it being on the way because I could then use it to also manage a fermentation chamber and cold box in another part of the house.
My biggest question is, how big of a pain/expense is it to splice thermocoupler probes, and is it a big problem to extend their wiring. Is this something that's commonly done?
