Default Eherms hlt how to?

anyone know of an eherms hlt how to. I plan on using a converted keg and copper coil, SS is too expensive for me. i want to make sure i get all the right parts and etc

thanks!

EDIT: I would also like to have it all weldless fittings if possible. Im usre i could solder if i had to though. and id be more willing if it would be way cheaper

I just made a eHERMS keggle using weldless fittings for my brewery...there are a few places with how to's but none of them were exactly what I wanted. I'll post some pics when I get home, but I basically used one od the 1" NPS nuts with a silicone o-ring for the element, 25' copper coil (3/8") and used compression fittings that have a male 1/2" NPT end. I soldered a washer to the fitting right above the threads where it seated against the hex portion. Then used a flas silicone gasket between the washer and keg wall to make the seal. Works great, and I can thread on whatever valve/coupling I want to the outside threads. I am using a bottom drain setup with a 2" sanitary coupler and a regular weldless bulkhead and valve for the water in/ recirculation return.

Have you priced copper? A stainless coil will be within a few dollars of copper.

I got this

http://hopdawgs.ca/Equipment/Wort-ch...product_id=339

use it for both recirculation during the mash and chilling the wort.

I probably could have made one for half the price, but really wasnt worth my time and effort

work great!

I'm guessing the OP has this figured out already but for others who may come across this thread, Kal's site has step by step instructions for an eHERMS HLT that are very straightforward:
