Ah, no fair, i always end up with not enuff wort in 2 carboys when i do 10 gallon batches, 50L keggle v 58 i guess :\. Looks good though, did your 1/8 holes work ok? I made my false bottom with 1/8 ish holes and i get a fair amount of free flowing debris when i recirculate. Im planning on adding some fine SS mesh in somewhere to help with that.

We were running really clear, but we used a bit of rice hulls since it's a weizen.

It's my buddy Phil's International Scout. I'm not sure what year, but I'll ask him.

You clearly have no idea what "anti bling" means.

The can gets pretty warm but it's enough of a heat sink that the relay hasn't failed yet. I might put the sink on the outside if it becomes a problem.

Steel frame table that used to be in a lab at the company I worked for 10 years ago (still has the inventory tag on the back of it, too). They went out of business and sold all the furniture in 2001. Spent $5 on that table.

It sat around essentially unused for the past 5 years and just happened to be sitting in the garage when I started working on the system. Without really thinking about it, I just started bolting and screwing things to it.
