Your setup is exactly what I am going for. If you do not mind me asking, what was your cost for everything??
Did you build your stand??
Do you have any sort of plans for your connections and stand?? If so it would be a GREAT help.
Also, where did you find your heat exchanger?? I have not seen that plate product before.
Thanks - Shane -
I'm at about $2700 for everything (see parts list below)
The stand is from brewersequipment.com. I'm happy with the stand but the transaction was painful. Search the forum for reviews of this site. He has HORRIBLE customer service and terrible communication with customers.
