Default Finally some Brutus Pics

Well, I've been getting some help from you guys on my brutus build so I figured I owed you some pics.

I brewed my first beer on it yesterday, an ordinary bitter. Everything went fairly well. I over shot my O.G. by 10 points so I'm getting a pretty damn good efficiency on it.

Enjoy!

One more during the boil. Those paint strainers work awesome and so does the whirlpool return when cooling.
