everything looks fantastic, with the one glaring exception of the heating elements mounted into a plastic bucket...

I noticed that during system checking, I"ll use rubber plugs (ones that are shown on pumps) to clog sight glasses, they match perfectly.

@audger
I know, maybe someday I"ll upgrade it to keg.. since I couldn't ground it at plastic bucket I installed 0.03A FID switch in control panel. It should register any short circuit and brake power immediately.

I had one of these buckets in my previous setup and never had problem when boiling in it.
I've used a lot of plastic hot water kettles and never seen one melt.

Looks like all the hard work paid off - great looking brew haus.

Cheers

Yeah, I did the same thing and mine looks like a lethal weapon and rips holes in my bag every time I use it

No matter how much one puts into their setup, I always love the clean look! From a $10,000 setup to the $50 rig, the clean and organized ones always catch my eye. Nice job on that false bottom too.
