Man, that's some serious bling...

So, are you planning to brew in the dark, or wear sunglasses?

Thanks! Followed Bobby_M's instructions with the Gator Fine/Polishing pads with various levels of rouge. It probably took 3 hours per keg, but they were pretty beat up

Planning on brewing in my basement, at least during the winter months. Then I'll have to put on some polarized sunglasses

I also just got in my Mini Brew 15G Conical Fermenter. I'm hoping to make the entire system closed (Cool, Transfer, Pitch, Ferment).

The system will be semi-automated with Auber PID's for the HLT and BK. Also have some room for BCS in the future if I decide, especially for fermentation in the adjacent room.

Update 1/10/10:

Here's a series of shots from my control panel. It's a 16x14x8 Hoffman panel, that is primarily influenced by Kal's brewery. All cuts were made with a Green Lee Unibit and Dremel. I decided to leave out the amp and volt meters. The heat sinks at the top are secured by JB Weld and silicone to allow the heat sink to be fully outside the box and weatherproof. There are 3 RTD inputs, 2 pump, 2 element and 1 main power outlets. I'll add photos after it's all wired up. Again, thank you Kal for being an inspiration to many new E-brewers.

Make sure you have adequate ventilation in your basement. No need to get CO poisoning while making your inaugural run on that setup!

It will be ventilated, but for now will just be 100% electric. I'm pretty sure after I start doing electric batches, I won't go back to propane, unless i go off-premise.

AWESOME!!!

I am in the early stages of building a system. Really just ordering pieces right now. My next order is the Steel. Was going to get 2x2 but thinking 1x1 may be fine. Curious what did you use?
