Rough cost estimate requested

Greetings, all. I am a long time homebrewer and have decided to take the plunge to all electric brewing. I have most of the details roughed-out, and have determined that I will need to have a few things done by an electrician. The first would be installation of one 50-amp and one 30-amp circuit to my residence. My current box is full, so I figure I will likely need a sub-panel installed as well. The distance from the box to the point of use would be very short (around 10 feet), which will certainly save me a bit on wiring. I should specify that these would have to be GFI protected circuits, of course.

I was wondering what the approximate cost should be for the installation of the two circuits. Additionally, I might consider having the electrician wire-up my PIDs, SSRs, and heating elements for me. That would be a different matter, obviously. I figure I wouldn't necessarily need a fully licensed electrician for the latter items, but would absolutely need one for the installation of the circuits. Any advice you folks could offer would be most helpful.

Thanks for your time,

This site is geared towards DIY, not cost estimates
Costs vary by location, so get several local estimates & check references
Thank you
