A big +1 there. I really want to see the pics bigger. It looks like an awesome build. That coil is sweet!

Ha I was looking on my phone so they didn’t seem all that bad. Now I get on the computer and they are like little avatars. Photobucket FTW! They even have an app for android (maybe iphone too) that will automatically upload your photos for you, then you just copy the image link and paste it in your threads at HBT or other places.

Couple questions:

1. What are you using as an exhaust fan? I have been looking around, and dont want to drop +$100 on one. Would a $50 bathroom vent (50 to 80 cfm) be enough?

2. How many silicone hoses do you have? I've figured I will need 5 - 3 in order to recirculate through the hex with one pump and 2 to agitate HLT water. Similar situation when chilling for me, although I see you have a CFC so it will be a bit different.

For the fan I used the Vortex 6" inline fan I got it off of amazon.

As far as number of hoses I made 5 with camlocks, and one with a fitting to attach to the sink tor filling water.

Ok so it took a bit for me to figure out Photo bucket, and then all of the picture downloaded from my phone, and I could not figure out how to pick and choose which ones I wanted uploaded to Photo Bucket, so that took almost a full day for all of the pictures to load. Long story short I have larger pictures to post now.

Here is the area before starting.


Installing the sink.


Building Vent Hood.


Building brew bench
