Well My collection of parts is going blindingly slow.... I keep brewing with my stashed cash

I was burned at work today, and spend some more planning time. Here is my total parts list and a layout of all the fittings.





EDIT: You will notice a lot of 0's in the Qty. line. I went through many iterations on this list so, my final design includes some parts but not others.

Exactly the sort of parts list I wanted to see as I'm going Blichmann as well and have been using your setup as a model to base mine one. I've had problems visualizing what's needed for the "in between parts" and now it's clearer. Thanks!

EDIT: Actually, it's pseudo-clear. Code numbers beside the parts diagram (2nd pick) along would help, but I can figure this out.

EDIT2: The only other recommendation I can make is to use silicone tubing (available from B3) instead of the NB thermoplastic stuff.

I am glad it helped!

1) I will probably add the part numbers today, I'll post back when I do.

2) I have considered that as well. I really like how stiff the NB tubing is and doesn't collapse or kink, but the translucency of the silicon is really nice.

I am excited to see your system. At the rate I am collecting parts, you will likely have yours done before mine! lol

If you want my excel sheet PM me with your email and I will shoot it over

Yes. Also for any sort of taint or other issues. I want to stay away from rubber and vinyl as much as possible. I actually ended up buying this Silicon tubing off of ebay:

Sani-Tech Tubing STHT-C-500-5F New in Package - eBay (item 120337468973 end time Nov-22-08 17:13:15 PST)

The walls are twice as thick as the stuff that B3 sells and it's 1/2 the price too.

I highly doubt that. I'm extremely slow as well.

Excel sheets sent and parts list updated above. Thanks guys! It really is a fun project, its just that all that stainless is not cheap! It is much cheaper to design than it is to build.

If any one else wants the excel files posted above, just PM me with your email and I will send them out.

This would be an easy rig to add automation to, and I intend to do so once it is up and running.... so I'll get back to you with those details in 9-10 years

I just received that Sani-Tech tubing. Looks like good stuff, very thick yet flexible. Of course I have'nt used it yet.
