  • I am still fairly new to brewing in my own opinion. I've been brewing since February 2012, and after 4 or 5 extract batches (some turned out good, others not so much), I moved on to all-grain. Right now I do AG full-volume BIAB in a keggle with a KAB4 Banjo Burner. I have 2 more 15.5gal kegs that I plan on cutting and turning into a MLT and HLT eventually. I built a 12.9cu.ft. keezer with a full wooden top and 3 SS Perlick taps. I plan on eventually expanding to as many as 6-8 taps as I am able to. I really enjoy the process, and you can't beat the fact that when you're done, you have really good beer to drink. Win win, right? I have a wonderful wife. She is very patient and allows me my hobby obsessions. If only she liked to drink beer...

    It was a major pain in the ass trying to work inside of it. So I'm not sure just how accurate
    the lower marks ended up, but I'm pretty happy with the results. We'll see how they hold up to
    actual brew...

    Ah, I saw the grill on the back side of the box from the inside, but missed the fan in the
    front.Cool project. I look forward to seeing your experience with it to see if its something I
    want to do in ...

    Have you noticed if the inside of the toolbox gets very warm/hot? Do you foresee needing to add
    a fan in the future?

  • Posted in thread: Yet another RIMS toolbox! on 01-20-2015 at 12:30 AM
    That's not bad at all. And a heck of lot better than these $1,000-3,000 control panels I see
    flying around the forums lately.Have you gotten any brews done with it yet?
