New electric brewer

as I Posted in the brewing 2021 thread, I "upgraded" to an electric all in one brew pot ( Brewzilla 3.1.1) with didgital controller and intralegal recirculating pump..this sytem allows precise temperature control over my mash and boil, it has a removable "malt pipe" that serves to hold the mash and is lifted to drain and sparge, allowing for exact volumes and temperature control, I needed a separate system to hole sparge water so I added an inkbird controller, 1800 watt heater element and pump to my original cooler/mash tun to heat and hold my sparge water...once to temp., it will stay within a degree or two for hours.

I mounted a locking one way pulley to the floor/ceiling joist and added a second pulley to reduce effort required for lifting/draining the malt pipe and spent grains..once lifted the unit has built in "rests" for the malt pipe in the sides of the brew pot.

the controller is programable up to six steps and I can program a 24 hour delay so I can set it up the night before and it can have my mash water to temp. when I go to brew... the electric elements are a little slower to come to temp than my gas fired unit, but I have learned to program the pot to start heating the water for boiling while I sparge..
I Have moved all my recipies to memory stick and view them on a small inexpensive lap top.. I still keep a written journal so I can document my victories and defeats..

I posted some pictures that were upside down, I removed them, I'm going to rotate them and see if they are right side up when I repost.

A good run is better than a bad stand!

5 gallon batches, I run the fume hood from my spray booth, yes, you can smell it but it's not unpleasant.

lets see if I got this right..

control is much tighter, it takes longer to bring the full boil, like any electric burner... but I've yet had 1 come close to boil over.. something I can't claim with my gas fired burner.

The cooler to the right is fitted with a 1800 watt heating element and controlled with an inkbird timer, I use that to heat my sparge water.
