Well.... I'm super stoked about my build so I thought I'd share my progress. The pumps should be in today and the control panel is ordered so I've been working on my Kettles and will have them done just as soon as my HERMS coil and probes arrive... Very Happy

I'm so glad I opted to do more research instead of getting the Brew Magic, Tippy Dump, or Tower of Power.

Cheers!

Really looks nice. Good job! Make sure you do water tests now while you're waiting, and again, and again!

i ended up testing a lot, because I thought I was done with all my leak stopping so on my first Brew Day, with hot water, had leaks! So i would test often and repeatedly until you are sure that there are no leaks.

Cool.... my March 815SS pumps just came in! I guess I'll be putting that footswitch I haven't used in 20 years to good use from my old setup (profile pic) pumping water back and forth testing for leaks! Very Happy It doesn't take a whole lot to keep ME entertained...

Cheers and thanks for the tip!

No, the center one looks smaller. Or maybe it is my eyes too.

Well after wrestling with the HERMS coil and trimming it up a bit to get it to fit it appears that I'm done with the HLT (aside from the cord)...

Nice.

I think that center kettle looking smaller is because the desk reflects dark on both sides, making it look narrower.

Looking good! Fun as hell isn't it? When I was done with the control panel I was a little sad I was done because I had so much fun building it. Very Happy
