One last post for the night. I build a panel mount in between the HLT and Mashtun. I liked the way Deepsix had his build set up and did something similar (tho slightly less, computerized, lol). I also wrapped the Mashtun in 2 layers of pipe insulation, the stuff thats sticky on one side and foam on the other. I think it looks pretty cool and it should definitely help with heat retention during the mashing process.
The space left on the panel is for the eventual addition of PID's, 1 for the HLT and the 2nd for the Kettle. This will happen when funds (or SWMBO) allow(s), lol.
If you look closely you will also see a large pressure cooker on the bottom shelf of the bench, this will eventually be used for a steam mash system. And next to that is a 4th keg which i have cut the top off of, i will eventually turn this into a fermenter similar to what Yuri has (i think instead of the cooling coils i will use an ice probe, my basement is cool all year long and i only need to drop the temp a few degrees).
A few weekends ago i scored a sweet deal, 2 cornys + 5lb CO2 tank with dual regulator for $125. I want to try making some beer in those first and develop a really solid recipe and then focus on some more building/DIY after that.
