Default 10g All Grain Setup Pics

I've been putting this setup together for a while, and it's just about done. Took some pics during my last brew day (mmmm, Stout!):

15g HLT keggle on the right (all weldless, thermo, sight glass, SS ball valve)
10g cooler in the middle (copper sparge and lautering manifold)
15g Boil keggle on the left (Bazooka t-screen, SS weldless ball valve)


Copper sparge manifold:


Hose clamp on top that I can loosen up to adjust the height of the manifold to the height of my grain bed:


Lautering Manifold:

Looks nice! I use a stainless braid for lautering, but have you given any thought to flipping your lauter manifold over so that the holes are on the bottom to reduce the dead space?

edit: sorry, didn't mean to cut you off before you were done posting.

Yep, that's how I have it set up. I just took the picture before I put it into my mash tun. Works pretty good with all the holes on the bottom, hardly any deadspace at all.

Ah ok, I guess I just got the wrong impression from the angle of the output.

yeah, that joint is not soldered together, so it rotates freely. Makes it really easy to clean out the mash tun, and rinse out the manifold. I soldered a few of them together just for peace of mind.

Thats a very impressive setup you've got there.

Mind explaining what your fermentation chamber is made of ? Is it just a closet, or do you have some kind of refridgeration built in ?

The fermentation chamber is made from an old mini-fridge, with a Johnson controller to maintain temps. Everything went under my workbench in the garage. It's constructed out of pine 1x3's, 1/4" Plywood, 1.5" RMax insulation board, and used some of the existing framing of my workbench. I started a build thread here:

Have you noticed consistent fermentation temps in your fermentation chamber? I would be worried that the side with the fridge would be much cooler than the far side?

I have an old dorm fridge sitting in my garage and I'm hoping to convince SWMBO to do something similar to yours.
