I'm not trying to sell you on anything but you can go compression to triclover. Just throwing ideas out there.

This is true. I do have some soft copper I can use to make one of these. Might have to do that.

Great Build!!

Cant believe I just found the thread. We are working on a similar system but ours is single tier and we have not gotten near as far as you on the electric. Keep up the good work and looking forward to the first brew day. We are currently brewing 20-25G batches as we continue to work on the system.

Thanks!

I am lucky enough to have a brother in law that's an electrician so I subbed that out. I built the panel and mounted everything. Left the dangerous stuff to him. All it cost me was a red dot scope for his AR-15! He will be down on Sunday to wire up my spa panel. I should have a ton of updates this weekend. Here is my to-do list.

Finish up control panel mount
Mount control panel to mount
Build the hoses for the brewery
Mount the thermocouples in the kettle and HLT
Complete the kegerator. (Build of that is in the sig)
Wash all of my beer glasses and place them in new cabinet


I also bought two 4ft work lights. I am going to replace the single 60w bulb with two 4ft lights. Should really brighten the area up.

She is working all weekend so I have a lot of time to fiddle around in the garage. I'll start some stuff tonight, work all day tomorrow and most of the day Sunday if I need to. I should probably get most of it done tomorrow.

If all goes right. I should have a functioning brewery by the end of the weekend. Then I'll have to see what I can do for ventilation. Pretty sure she won't be too pleased with giant hood. Can probably just get away with opening the garage door.

Br1dge, good luck with your build. Do you have a thread started?

As you can see nothing since 6/26. I feel bad about that but will be brewing and will try to update tomorrow. Have a huge order in with Zach at Stainlessbrewing.com for a custom hop strainer, HEX coil and some other parts. Looking forward to receiving the order. I think we are going to try and gather parts and sub the electrical work out but guessing that will take us a while. Things never seem to happen as planned.

Still have some minor things to tidy up. Also have to check the wiring on the one Thermocouple. Seems I have a wire reversed somewhere.

Sweet rig - I'm extremely jealous.

Thanks!

Right now I'm building a milling station. Going to be 3ft x 28". Going to be solid butcher block. Will also be a work table. I'm probably going to mount the motor and mill underneath, build a removable hopper and then be able to plug the hole so I can use it as a table when the mill isn't in use.
