LOL-Ok, the toolbox concept may need to be improved on. It does contain a RIMS tube and pump that is mounted inside the toolbox. There are quick fittings on the outside that hook up to the in/out of the MLT. I'll have to get some more pictures. My plan is to put all of this behind a stainless steel plate, plumb everything to a single panel that will let me "patch" using short stainless steel braid hoses.

Nice rig, you will thank yourself when you buy a pump.

are you using gas burners indoors? How are you venting the CO?
i'm afraid to brew in my garage with the 18'-0 door halfway closed.

Of course he's not scared, he's from Italy. Only us whiny coddled Americans are afraid of such things.

What is the connection you've made with the SS hose braid and your 316 'T' in your lauter tun? I don't recognize the fitting, but looks way better than what I'm using! cheers!

Amen brotha. I brew in my basement in a 17' x 8' finished room with a range hood vent without any issues whatsoever. Hell, we cook in our kitchens all the time without issues; why the big deal when brewing beer, as long as it's properly ventillated?

When I beer I have 4 windows open in that space than a door that leads directly outdoors, and keep open all the time of the crush!

A bit complicated to explain but simply as a system, the T is in stainless steel with a tube still several holes for the grape on which I have worn the jersey of the pipe-filter which I then stuck to the outside with a T Teflon self-built compass, tomorrow I'll do a drawing and place

I would fear CO (carbon monoxide) levels long before Co2 (carbon dioxide) concentrations levels increased off any combustible product.
