Ok, so i know that there are tons of threads and pics of DIY mash tuns but i had to share with my fellow beer geeks. I am relativity new to brewing still, I have completed 5 home brews and currently fermenting my 6th. I will be trying my luck at all grain brewing in the near future. I am stoked and just wanted to share my excitement with everyone else. :mug:

is that a SS washer in there? looks really thick!

Awesome good job, yea I started out with that same design.
Oh yea and make sure that washer on the inside IS stainless

Yeah they are SS.

Have you leak tested? It doesn't look tight enough... I just built mine the same as yours (minus the ss braid) and I really had to get it tight

Looks great, how many qt. does that baby hold? I have a square Coleman 48qt. But I like the looks of yours.

yeah that was the first thing i did. The washer inside looks loose but only because i have 2 rubber seals so the washer would not sit flush. It actually leaked when i only had one rubber washer on it. Anyway i super freaking stoked to try my hand at AG.....
