Default Blue Crab Brewing Co. Brew Porn

I've been in the process of finishing up my Kal clone (well almost, its gonna run 2 burners & a heating element) & gotten a lot of help from the HBT community, so even though shes not quite done yet (check ssrs, wire pilot lights, finish the new frame, water test...) I thought I'd put up a few pics... I know how you guys like shiny things.

Prost,
Theo

Sweet control box man! Where did you get the stainless steel enclosure?! BTW, I'm glad to see you're building a proper stand. That gorgeous set up deserves better than an old ping pong table!!

Lovin all that SS and triclover!

I see a triclover RIMS tube, and I assume the plastic bucket is your mash tun. What are you planning for your mashing technique? Will this be a hybrid type of system, capable of ERIMS and EHERMS? What's your maximum batch size?

Are those returns installed into the lids? I had lid returns and ended up uninstalling them because of the constraints they involved, so I suggest not using lid returns.

Well, the plan for now is to use the brute (plastic bucket) as the HLT, in combination with my brewers hardware rims tube. The MLT & BK will be direct fired, same as I have been doing for the past 2 years. I have never brewed a batch using electric before, so I imagine that that plan will change quite a bit after I brew a batch or 2.

They are 30 gal kettles, I usually brew 15 gal batches but have done 20.

What are these constraints you speak of? I have been using lid returns for a couple months with no problems

I mostly finished welding up the top of the new brewstand this weekend. Who says brewery equipment can't be art?
