We spoke about creating a discussion so people who have or people who are thinking about and/or building can share pic's info and pitfalls to avoid.
Just about finished building my bench and hopefully will have a chance to start wiring it up this weekend. Pics to follow shortly.
That oxy stones sounds pretty interesting, are you setting it up like Paul Wicksteads one to oxygenate on output from counterflow chiller?
Be keen to see some piccy's
What diameter is the copper pipe you've used here? I thinking of using 1/4 inch
I was lookin at 6M of 1/4" with 1/2" supply with the intention of a steady sparge.
Mate that is serious dedication, you have the required patience to make a great brewer.
I have just ordered some polishing kit for angle grinder, will let you know how it goes, love the shinny bling.
Hi Graeme, welcome to the addiction,
re your question on the plugs to use, if you don't want to go with the US style as per the electric brewery then you could try
They have 20 and 25 amp panel mounted plug bases and plugs, 5500w elements would pull 23 amps, personally for heating I would go with the US style plugs and bases off amazon and get a 30 foot coil of flex from the same supplier.
I went with the US style plugs for the HLT and BK elements and installed one of the HPM 20 amp plug bases for one of the pump circuits to future proof it in case I decide to add a separate heat exchange later, I could run an additional 3kw through this if the HLT is .
This pump circuit is linked through the #2 PID, this pump circuit has 3 way switching manual/off/auto(with an auber timer/PID to control the auto) so that the pump can fire based of temp and also shut off at a time or temp threshold.
I am going to use some PDL plugs and sockets from a recent comms room decommission... PDL are great but unbelievably expensive new.... If you know anyone pulling an old computer room apart ask them whats happening to the underfloor power points. You could bring the output of the Wall mount brew control to a wall mount switch/plug box if there is no room in the box, just use a gland.
Gives you another layer of isolation as well.
