Default Almost done with my RIMS System

Well the plumbing is done and the gas lines are hooked up. Just need to finish the electronics and we'll be brewing!

just want to thank everyone for such an enormous amount of guidance!

these were just taken with my phone. I will take tons of pics when done and give you the details of the build soon!

Any reason your stand is so much longer than most?

Looks awesome! I love all copper plumbing...looks so much nicer. I'm also digging those pilot coils. I'm too lazy to do that on mine.

two reasons...I didn't want the heat transfer from the burners affecting the temperatures of the other kettles , and also we powder coated it so i didn't want the outside frames to get to hot from the burners. The only areas that should be getting a lot of heat we painted with a high temp ceramic.

Really great! Love the symmetry of the whole thing and the standalone control panel on casters. Nice work
