Coincidence...I'm doing the same thing myself. My guessed, in Idaho. I had a nice Yamaha set up, receiver and speakers. Been a Yamaha junkie for a long time.
  I've already got my powered sub, an Onkyo. Passives never got it for me. My living room is only 12x17 so 5.1 will be fine for me though I am considering going 7.1 just to add Dolby Atmos. I could do Atmos with 5.1, but I the Atmos would sound really nice centered in the length of the room. Building the new electric brewery and researching and planning it, I've not got too in depth with speakers yet, but I'm leaning to a Harmon Kardon wifi w/ Bluetooth and Yamaha speakers.

I'll have to check out that project. Got a link or anything?

As for the overflow, I'll have a wet switch placed 3/4 up my kettles to kill the power to the solenoid. As a fail safe I will have a wet switch mounted 3/4 the up my kettle to kill the solenoid. And, for redundancy I will have a second one to kill the pump. And, for my third fail safe I'm going to invest in a good wet vac and mop.  ;D

I would LOVE to incorporate a couple of March pumps in my build, but budgetwise, I can't do it right now. These are what I'm looking at for the time. Eventually I will up to the March, but just not right now.
 I know I'm gonna get the whole "you get what you pay for" and "buy quality the first time and you'll save money in the long run" lectures. I know that. I'm a salesman, I give them every day. Aside from that, do you see any reason this won't work for the time?

 My Promash is sitting in Idaho. Gonna have to break down and buy it again. Loved that software. There are some nice Android apps though.

 As I'm building the control box for my electric brew system, I'm thinking of adding a flow meter. My plan is to use a couple of wifi thermostats and series of relays and contactors so that I can begin brewing from my phone an hour or two before I even get home from work. Once I get it wired in, with a couple of taps on my phone and the solenoid wired into the flow meter opens to allow my strike water to fill my HLT. I have not sourced it yet, but I know it has to exist somewhere, I'll a wet switch set just and inch or so above my heating element. as soon as that trips, the element turns on and begins heating the strike water and then when the preset amount has passed the flow meter, the solenoid closes. So, by the time I get home, my strike water will be heated and ready for doe in.
 depending how long it takes to heat, I will have the same set up wired into another kettle set to come on a half hour or so after my strike water. So, by the time I get home, doe in, and do a 60 min mash, my sparge water will be ready. All from just a few taps on my phone.
  Questions? Comments? Rude remarks?
 This is the flow meter I'm looking at.

Pimp My System / Electric build begins tonight!

We sold our house and bought a condo. With that, I'm upgrading to electric. The build begins tonight. Obviously I'll need a lot more than what's pictured here, but its a good $150 start! The Weaze will be back soon!

Got to work on the new brewery today. I don't have access to the metal shop anymore so I'm going wood this time. Obviously not finished but notice the catwalk. That's right. I said catwalk!!

Is it possible the water you're seeing is condensation?
