Default Major construction COMPLETE on RIMS system.

WOOT!!

I finally finished the major construction on my RIMS system tonight.

Tomorrow I will hunt down and fix any leaks.

Left to build is the Sparge manifold and some dip tubes in the keggles.

Sunday I will clean everything and Monday I will be popping the cherry on this thing!!!

Here are some pics...

I like the copper plumbing. What's the middle keg covered with?

Looks like that middle keg is one of the rubber coated kegs. Most brewers don't like em because you can't heat in em and the metal is supposedly thinner than on "normal" kegs.

I have one sitting in my garage that'll probably end up a mash tun. I figure the rubber is insulation, right?

Look's like OP is using his coated as a MT as well. Great idea.

Will you show your RIMS tube in more detail? All I have seen around is SS ones.

Any drawbacks to having your system hard-plumbed? Maybe there is something that you will have to do without or a configuration you can't do?

I'm really liking the copper.

I love it, very steam punk.
I can almost see Jules Verne and HG Wells brewing up a batch together.

I second the steam punk look. I think this looks like it could fit in on the rec room of the Nautilus. I mean come on even Captain Nemo would need some beer. He exiled himself from civilization not beer!

Actually it is one of those rubber coated kegs. I got it for free so I went with it.
I am hoping that it will act as insulation to help hold the temp in the MT.

I like the copper tubing also! Best part was I was able to scrounge the copper from work for FREE.
