    A bushing might be a nice solution....internal threads would be 1/2" FPT allowing you to thread
    it over existing 1/2" MPT camlocks, and the outside threads would be GHT....you would still be
    able to k...

    If you don't do the ribcage style (looks pretty effective though) at least make the IC a wider
    diameter....you want as many coils as you can get under the surface and as much room to
    whirlpool as poss...

    How is everyone implementing their RTD/Thermocouple? It looks as if you could put a port for
    one on the body of the hotrod pointing straight up or sideways....but I guess if it used NPT

    I've seen a vessel rack built along the top of a garage wall.....really just a shelf with 2x4's
    and plywood. That gets the bulky stuff out of the way. I personally use a cart with wire
    racks...it allo...

    If you are strictly using it for 5G batches, they will work, but you need to be careful of
    boilovers. I brewed with a 7.5 gallon turkey fryer stockpot, and it worked fine with FermCap.
    Awesome as ferm...

    So just to clarify, the insulation is reflectix, on yoga mat, covered in the denier material
    which is sewed up, then plus a seep at lid piece?I agree - looks great! Might give it a try for
    my new sank...

    Very nice....if you backflush well and recirc boiling wort before chilling, you may not need to
    do PBW every time. I had the very same chiller and it was always clean (I used a SS hop spider
    to filter...

    Yes, for a 30A circuit (4500w on 240A) you would need 10 gauge wire. It will fit, but as Bobby
    mentions here and in the writeup on the website, you need to strip the outer insulation from
    the cable an...

    +1 to the kegging setup....that can be done for about $300 and you could still get a mill. I
    have found that alternative beverage has good deals...also adventures in homebrewing.

    Yep, put me in for one of the Hotrods too ;) Looks too good to pass up.

Hey Scuba Steve,





I tried contacting you via PM but it said you box was full. I hope you don't mind me leaving a contact here...







I was wondering if you could give me some advice in building my own wood rig. I really like a lot about your old setup and wanted to pick your brain if you are open to that...



What were the dimensions that you went with?



If you built it a second time would you change the dimensions? (fo
