First off I could not stand keeping this a secret for any longer.
A little back ground: I have been brewing for about 9 years now, dont tell the authorities because I was only 18 when I started. I jumped into AG a year later. Then someone on HBT inspired me to build my first partially AG automated rig, which consisted of a few love controllers, welded stand and 5 gal pots, pump, two burners and a separate HEX. This was pretty impressive for my first stand. It took me two years to build and, I had it all the way through college. To say the least my friends loved all the beer on tap.
The perfectionist that I am started to show its true colors when I kept finding the smallest flaws in what many would consider a perfect rig. Little things such as copper piping, cleaning, and not all fittings were welded, amateur automation, etc. So I started dreaming up a build that would become the build of all builds. Except for a few that we all know.
What I wanted:
Hard plumbed Tri clovers
3X 26 gal pots
Almost 90 percent automated
CIP with separate pump and filter
Bottom Draining tanks
Hard plumbed water and filters
Probably run brewtroller with Beagle bone Black
The list goes on and on
I went out and Purchased a Mig welder and later purchased a tig
