Panel mock up after it was cut out and panel primed. Tomorrow is the real paint on the panel

Switches, PID's, timers, and indicator lights installed. Making progress slowly but surely.

Looks like some good progress, Now the fun parts starts (wiring). When I did mine it was a little overwhelming at first. Then it got better as I went along. Good luck and keep the pictures coming.

The sun and 70+ degree weather decided to show up over the weekend so the only thing I got done on the panel was mounting the DIN rails to the back plate. I played around with placement of the breakers, contactors, etc. and I think I have them where I want them. Hopefully I can start on some wiring next weekend.

I got a Monoprice tv mount http://www.monoprice.com/products/pr...seq=1&format=2 in the mail today and hope to mount the plate to the back of my panel tomorrow. Once that happens, I can put the panel backplate back in and start the wiring. I was hoping to get a big chuck of wiring completed this weekend but all 6 kegs are getting low. So, it will be a brew weekend! With propane

I like the idea of a foldaway panel on a TV arm. Definitely a space saver.

Once I get my Stout tanks (should be next month), I will figure out how I want to attach the TV mount to the brew stand. I have a big shop and was thinking about placing the brew stand up against a wall and mounting the panel on the wall but I really like wheeling the stand around to wherever I want. On nice days I can wheel it out the garage door and on crappy days I can brew inside. I like to be mobile!

I'm thinking about doing the same with the rig I'm building, for the exact same reasons. I'll be interested in what you come up with. :-)

I finally got to some wiring. I'm brewing two 10 gal batches tomorrow so I should be able to spend some time here and there on the wiring. Slowly but surely...
