In the picture it looks like it would be a tight fit for the hand once the plumbing is in place, of course the pic's aren't actual size......

There is plenty of room in real life. I cannot rotate them 90 degrees, because then the handles interfere with the TriClamp connections and plumbing.

Little work done today...

Top of the kettles is at 41" tall...

To the LOWEST ball valve is 27"

It will be easy to mash in and see what is going on in the vessels, yet I wont have to stoop.

Looking good. I like the dark colors to contrast with all that stainless. Almost too pretty to use in a garage. I would have to build a room in my house just for the rig.

I am a huge fan of keeping things clean and hidden when possible. This should turn out real nice.

Thanks Brewmoor...

This was the plan from the start. Make it nice enough to exhibit in the home, keep it clean enough to do so as well. BUT, make it serious enough to brew beer and do it quickly (lots O BTUs)

Pop the hood, let's see it's innards!
That's really nice - is there a spot in the kitchen for it, or where else do you got monster electric hookups? Too nice for the garage.
