and I forgot to say how impressed I was with your work! Brewers such as yourselves make my life much easier when you share your talents. I need all the help I can get!

Let me know if you need anything changed. I'm recreating the doc right now and like any input that people would like to add/subtract. I want a simple solution.

I will also be creating a diagram with part placement (non-electric) so people can see where I'm planning on putting everything.

there's a whole thread from Slnies who has been beta testing this module for a while. I've seen it in action and I plan on getting one soon.

I think this is a cool product.....but damn....it sure doesn't LOOK exciting. I wish they'd make it in neon green like my iPOD.....oh....and I want to be able to set it to turn on the tv whenever the Jonas Brothers come on......

sorry they only have the family guy implementation.. .no jonas brothers... i think i will turn the unit on this weekend, through the intarweb we have been collaborating and it will be interesting to see how our individual projects size up... i'm not sure baout slimers space constrains but an all electric brew cart with the 10 gal capability plus BCS will be a killer anywhere... now if only i could figure out how to slide my stove out from its nook and get at the 240V plug...

oh and pictures (not from mspaint) to follow :-)

I've brewed with mine once, just using it for temp monitoring. Next run I'll let it control my pumps. Slick little box.

I have enough space, it's the wife noticing how much space that it takes up that's the problem.

Right so, This is the initial frame for the new Brewery to be controlled by the BCS, more pics to follow.

This shall be made with 1 1/2" angle iron, the step if for the ekeggle, underneath it will fit the CFC, to the left will be the eHLT, on top will be the eMLT... more pictures as i finish the models to follow



the coil is actually the cfc, the eHLT and eMLT will actually be coolers but i could find any on sketchup and i'm horrible at component setup...
Comments welcome
