I will post more pictures for sure !

Nice build indeed....roughly what is the total cost of this build?

120 Glass carboys? WOW Why not a few larger SS fermentors?

You said 3 BBl, isn't that closer to a 100 gallon system?

Totally agree! Seems like picking up a couple 20 or 30 gal conical fermentors would be a good idea. Squeeky detailed some info here in the past : http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/supe...78/index4.html

Direct link to where you can pickup 15 - 85 gallon fermentors that seems to work pretty well for others (at least from what I have read): http://www.agrimart.net/inductor-tanks/

Hope this helps!

BTW - Very nice setup!
