Red is Main power.
Yellow powers the Temp Controllers. Theses switches have stackable contact blocks so I can use 1 switch to feed both TCU's. 1 contact per unit.
The TCU's for the MLT and HLT
Green transfers power through to the solenoid valves for the MLT and HLT burners. The best part of this feature is even when turned on the switches light only comes on when the solenoids are open and the burners are lit. So it's an extra visual so I know what's going on with the system.
Blue are for the pumps.
Tried to make it as clean as possible and have all controls handy from the front. You'll see on the left I put a panel mounted needle valve to control the boil kettle burner. That way I can turn it up to get to a boil and then dial it back easily enough to maintain a boil without scorching the wort.
Can't wait for my first run!
