The system goal is to be able to load hopper with malt and let equipment take care of crush, mash, boil functions with hop additions made by hand. As to the cost, you dont want to know, less than a B3 system, but spread over 2 years accumulating components on ebay. With a flash boiler i dont have to wait on a HLT to warm up as time to temp is less than 60 seconds from cold start, step mashing is done with steam injected into flowing wort and heat transfer is high enough that it can heat wort 30+ degrees at 1 GPM flow with out scorching. Here is the schematic and the analog control schematic http://picasaweb.google.com/kevin.la...ystemSchematic

So you pretty much push a button and beer comes out? Like a willy wonka machine!

Buy grain, load grain, push button, add hops as necessary, fill fermenters and clean equipment?

One of the future goals for the system is sequential brewing by swapping out and cleaning mash and boil kettles during operation so it would be doing the next mash cycle while previous batch is boiling. Production is directed towards making as many entries as possible in as many styles as practical for sanctioned competitions with the limited time available now.

I absolutely love the grain auger. Can you give some details on it? Where did you find it?

Outstanding!! Is that some sort of PLC control system? Automation is my line of work, just curious.
