Now back to the OP's thread and its pure awesomeness!
Looks Awesome Hoppopotomus!! Thanks for sharing the pics. I am wanting to finish out my basement with a bar myself.. I mean after all you have to have a proper place to serve everything you brew right. (I spotted the mill right away.. I have a monster 2 roller myself.. not nearly as nice a stand but it works..

Default wet run today.. tomorrow we brew

Got a good shake down run in today. Had a few things to sort out before brewing. It all went well and should be a success tomorrow.





I almost cried but I drilled my Blichmann pot for the recirc. hose..





Definitely got the drips from the fan... good thing the sink is under it!!

That is a really amazing setup!!!! I just put together an electric set up and have used it once. But I just went as cheaply as I could, and my "spot" in the basement is totally unfinished. I can dream of one day having something as sweet as this I guess. But if you want to check it out, here are some of the pics of my stuff:

Keep up the great work and I hope your brew session goes well!!!!!

Very nice Ed... I will tell you if it works for you there is no need to do what I did. I just have a habit of going to the extreme sometimes. Will my system make better beer than a single BIAB setup? Maybe not but I love all the gadgetry anyway!

Sorry for not getting back to this for a while, but yes, that was my concern and it seems like you have a viable solution! Everything is looking utterly amazing!

No worries.. Thanks for setting me on that path.. they worked great.

Took video of my first brew day and will post it once I get it all edited together in one file.

BTW The brew day was a success hit my gravity and volume for the most part.. Spilled a qt or 2 at the end not shutting off a valve.. but hey live and learn!!
