    these are food safe? They appear to be all nylon and say rated up to 100C That would make the
    cost of a fully automated system fairly reasonable.Those are pilot operated (some call it
    servo) and not...

    So I'm basically done now. Need to clean and finish some insulation. Otherwise operational.
    Sure that I'll have lid sealing issues and still need to connect the blow off hoses.

Hey Claudius. I appreciate your taking the time to check out my fermentation chamber thread and shoot me a couple of "likes". I have to say that I am still relatively new to brewing, but I love the diy projects associated with brewing. I have scrolled through your many galleries of photos and I have to say that I am truly impressed. Not only are you a fantastic engineer and fabricator of some unbelievable brewing equipment, but you are also a very generous member of HBT. It's great for us novice brewers to benefit from the the help and advice of much more experienced folks like youself. I appreciate your help given to me a couple of years ago with my keezer temp controller and your willingness to share your knowledge. Thanks man.....I really appreciate it. I can only hope to someday gain a fraction of your knowledge, so that I can lend a helping hand to new brewers. chambers are almost done. Check it out when you get a chance. Thanks again!
