Default RIMS set up!

So this is the set up I am going to build. I think I will do both a steam and an electric version of the manifold. How does it look?

Sorry it took so long, but here is the new brew rig. Only a few more days and she will be complete.

This is the over all view. I have built it so I can trade out the HLT and the MLT for bigger sanke kegs latter.

Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner. For equipment on my rig, I am using a Watco PID and a 40 amp SSR with a heat sink, paired with a 4500W ULD water heater element. I am running it on 115-120v or whatever i have where ever I go. I am building this thing to be mobile. Every thing breaks down and fits in the Mercury mystic, my gas sipper. This I suppose will only last until I have bigger vessels, then i will have to use the truck. If you have anymore questions Kickflip, feel free to send me a PM. S.

Local Hardware store. They sell it by the foot. This is good though, because a full stick will cost you 60-80$ depending on where you go.
