Very nice indeed.
But shouldn't this thread be in the DIY section?

Duh! Man, didn't even think about that. Any mods care to move it?

Glad you guys enjoyed the video, took me all of 10 minutes to complete the build. I'll be brewing next weekend, we'll see how it works.

Yeah, let's hope they will, so it's easier to find in the future.
About the video, it'd have been better if you had a hot Chinese girl doing it (), but, yeah, it's ok...

Let us know how it goes...

Jbrookiv, have you had any issues with the hop spider gathering steam condensation and dripping DMS back into the kettle?

This should simplify things for me, I've been thinking about making one of these for a while now, and is coming up on my "easy" project list.
