Thanks for sharing in my excitement!

This rig is a converted keg that started out on propane.

I added a 2" triclover ferule and to that attached a 5500W Camco heating element. I wanted to be albe to do 10 gallon batches in the future, hence the 5500W element. It's controlled by a cheap 40A SSR from Amazon which is controlled by an Auber PID (which still needs some fine tuning apparently). It's all powered by a 240V 25A GFCI protected circuit. You'll have to excuse my basement (my daughter's play area is in the background) we just moved in a few months ago and the basement is still a work in progress.

So a few pics:
