After being "Let go" from my long term job of 10+ years that I was told I would take ownership of in April of Last year, I decided to delve far deeper into brewing. After 4-6 months of down time i decided to take the plunge. I had been doing lots of research and talking to brewers and decided that an Electric setup would be the way to go. I made arrangements with a friend of mine who is an electrician and after confirmation that he would take on the job, away we went.
After doing some extra research I decided to buy DIY kits from Kal over at Theelectricbrewery.com. While more expensive then some of the other options, I liked the Functionality and Durability of Kals setup. In September we started ordering kits and its been a busy Winter! I finished the CP about a month ago and the electricity is just now getting finished up. The harsh New England Winter we had slowed down certain aspects unbearably so.
Part 2 too follow.
