Nice, a SS triclamp counterflow HEX coil. Though it does seem like it would act as a radiator, how far do you have to set the HLT temp higher to hit the mash temp you're after?

Yeah, the drawer is definitely good to have. It was one of those cheap plastic / Rubbermaid type drawers that I had lying around so I just screwed it into the brew stand and it holds all of the miscellaneous stuff in one place. Thats the advantage of a wooden brew stand...you can easily add stuff on to it.

Started with one Blichmann burner then added another, then the plate chiller so I just built a sculpture to put it all on. Will test run this weekend.

Default Thanks klyph

I just watch the temp on the mash and adjust accordingly. The coil is there to maintain the mash temp. When I start a brew day I fire up the burners under the MT and the HLT Once I hit the dough in temp I kill the MT burner and start the recurc.

We are having a big brew day for the local club on Sunday. I'll take some pics and post them.

You could look at Kal's write-up in the electric brewing section for a good, detailed plan for an awesome control panel.

Brouwerij Kabouter would be the one to talk to he built one recently for a member....I think it's called a panel mount enclosure or something like that. A very ergonomic design.

You can't brew beer on that. It won't work.
