2000 W is the largest 120V element. Anything larger is 240v. As it is the 2000 pulls about 17 amps...

Sweet! I am not sure what I like better; the brew cart, the home office set up complete with a library, or the fact that you have an oak barrel. Oh, okay, I love it all.
Great job on the build. I like the compact design too.

Thanks! I appreciate it. I spend most of my life in that office (work from home) so I need it to be nice...

I work from home too. I just mentioned to my wife about bringing the brewery in and it was a "what?"    ;D

Where did you get your emergency stop button? Apparently I need one for my system now.

Awesome. Thank you. My wife was like: "What about an emergency shut off" She's on a safety committee at her work.
I'd have to say she is right though.

Plug it into the switched light socket in the office. She can save your butt if you can't get to the shiny E-stop button.

The moral majority, is neither.

thorongil, this looks very nice my friend! If you don't mind, I have robbed a pic for my website! Starting to get enough Brutus 2.0 systems out there to where I want to have them on their own page now... This will make one fine addition!

Yea, so this makes me want to actually build one myself! Brew inside, man, I could look at this Texas heat through a nice air conditioned window!

It's everything you hope it could be... but I still like to brew outside in the winter...

Wow, fantastic system!

I have a spare 220V outlet downstairs I could use for something like this.

How much did it cost to pull everything together and can you share your parts breakdown?

Thanks
