You can create gain by inserting a resistor between the two 100k resistors and the output.

It looks great, except that it wouldn't work.

So if I put a 100k resistor in where you said that would give me a gain of 2.

What does the 100k resistor thats currently located between the output and ground?

I know the circuit I found does not allow for any conditioning of the PWM.  I assume I will need some sort of low pass filter on the op-amp input.

Well, you could go to radio shack and get a rectifier to rectify the 24vac into a dc current, use some fat capacitors to smooth the DC ripple, and use a voltage regulating chip (7805, 7812, etc and some small diodes) or a pot to get the output voltage down to ~10v for the base signal. Crude, but might work.

The schematic I posted includes the low pass filter.
