I can't wait to finish that thing!
Thanks for just tanking the rest of my productivity for the day! I've looked there before but not as much as this one.

I also want to note that on our last brewday, we packed up the entire brewery fermenters and all and headed over to my brewbuddy's house... IN MY MINI.

How freaking great is that. I was geeking out, I can't believe I can transport this whole thing in the MINI with a passenger.

I could be wrong but I didn't see the actual enclosure for the controller and pump on the build list. Could you tell me where you got it from. Love the build and the Twent-E2. Thanks

The enclosure is just a tool box. I got a Husky brand one from Home Depot.

Just some fun pics of last weekend. I actually have pictures of brewing now... amazing. I am terrible at taking pictures. Luckily, my friend snapped a few and emailed them to me.

So I finally got around to making the housing for the element... safety first (or not).

Here is what I did.



It is a cannibalized plastic box with an all weather face plate. The recessed outlet is sealed up with silicone and the box is fully plastic welded (plastic specific epoxy) to the keg exterior.

I used a profile guage to steal the profile of the keg:



Then, I traced that profile onto the box, and cut it out with my mini band saw.

Then I clamped the box in place with a bungie cord, and epoxied the crap out of it. Wiped smooth with a squeegee and bob's yer uncle.



The flash picks up some extra epoxy, but it looks perfect with the naked eye.

BTW, I was meaning to ask, how many burners on the stove do you need to get the tool box hot enough to maintain mash temps?

When I first saw this pic, it looked like that burner was ON.
