I see you orient your system a little different from what's typical, so that threw me off.
Is sweating those parts those parts together like that and getting a water tight seal something easy enough for an amateur like me to pull off?
Good work btw, yours is purdy.
Probably the main difference with my system layout is that all the vessels are stowed away when I am not brewing.
I really need my countertop and work bench space for other activities, so it's not a fixed brewing sculpture like you often see. The only thing that is permanently mounted is the pump and RIMS heater and control panel. When I am not brewing, the big stuff all gets hung on big hooks in the ceiling joists.
It takes some practice to sweat copper pipe, but unlike welding, when soldering copper, you get do-overs if you are not happy with the results.
Having said that, a rims tube made of threaded pipe fittings is hard to beat for ease of assembly.
