Inaugural brew day on the new system coming shortly. If anybody has questions about this build or interested in additional details of the components I will be more than happy to share. It has been about a year in the making so far.

Sweet Jesus... I don't even know what's going on in that box. I'm guessing you hit play and 4 hours later you have fermenting wort? Nice build man.

Temp control for HLT and Boil, valve control for each vessel, interface is completely wireless via ipad/iphone. I still have piping for water in through carbon filter and supply to heat exchanger. You cant take all of the fun out of brewing by automating everything but it certainly will make brew days a bit easier. Of course I always enjoy these too.
