Control Panel mounted...check! Wiring...not so much


So, I finally got around to mounting the control panel on the brewery. Today, the task is to wire everything into the panel and do some minor (though it seems nothing is ever minor with this project) plumbing. I'll keep you updated!

Hi Andrew, Your setup looks great. I would like to know more about the control panel with the BCS-460,software, and brewstand. Were you able to purchase all of the individual components from the BCS-460 company and then assemble it yourself? Do they provide the Software also? Found info via google. Can you provide urls for BCS and brewstand. Thanks Hydro

Hey Hydro,
Thanks for the comment. The BCS-460 is a small box that can sit in the enclosure (see It's Electric...boogey woogey? post, it's the small black box with green terminals). Here is the website, http://www.embeddedcontrolconcepts.com/ . His name is Adam and he's a good guy, tell him I sent you his way. The software is web-based. The stand came from a guy named Marcus Glover, http://brewersequipment.com/. Also a really helpful guy that can build custom stands. Everything else I built myself. Check out homebrewtalk.com for some advice on building brew stands and everything you need to know. I would encourage you to join the forum, since the amount of knowledge that you can get from that community is really priceless. It took about 6 months for me to build this thing and all of the resources I mentioned were invaluable. Let me know if there is anything else I can help you with. Thanks again for following the blog, Hydro.

Andrew
