Do you have plans on how you made the PWM control box? That's the exact build I'm looking to do. Thanks Steve

I would like to have a control box to monitor temps and control the flame, etc...not electric valves but something easy to build. I'm looking at the PIDs but I have not decided on a certain control box set up yet. Thoughts?

Without electric valves you aren't going to be able to automate the temperature control... The PID will give you an alarm which would be helpful. But for it to be accurate the sensor will have to be in the wort

I see...is there a thread on the forum that is very detailed on this matter? Another question i have is the march pumps...is it better to pull the wort through the chiller or filter or whatever ....or push it through? As long as the pump doesn't run dry it shouldn't matter correct?

Thanks all for the kind words and interest in this build...it's been very helpful

I don't know about a thread here, you can search them...
When pumping the wort I don't think pulling or pushing matters, however if you plan on pushing hot wort through a chiller make sure the pump is most importantly food grade and also that it can handle the heat of near boiling wort.

I finished the hops in the iron work this weekend. I think it turned out right nice. Unique...that's what makes this build fun. I had to order a 6" pipe for the filter but I made a holder for it that looks like a chest some what. Changed the burners around because them girls are hot...lowered and put the control up front. Getting the wiring done on the pumps now...Mmmmmm

I remain impressed. Was totally ready for this last post to drop my expectations...but nope...still looks pretty darned cool. I would go a shade darker on the green but that's why it is your build and not mine!

Bowditch Vol. 1 & 2! Never know when you'll need to calculate the altitude correction for atmospheric pressure!


Nice set up!
