    Can you show this exact shot with the copper plate removed? I'm just wondering how the inside
    surface looks after being welded with that plate instead of being backpurged.Thanks! this
    picture helps

    Because the pump outlet is 1/2" and the valve is 1" the 90 degree bend is probably the lesser
    restriction. The same is also likely for the inlet as that is 3/4" but I'll watch the pump
    operation when ...

    The back-ordered fittings finally arrived. Couldn't resist setting up the valves and hose barbs
    on the Chugger pump. I'm thinking I might put the pumps on pullout trays. This should provide
    easy acces...

    Installed the connector from the spa panel to the power distrubition box. Began the wiring of
    the terminal block to the breakers and fuse holders.

    Saved up the "pennies" over the winter and just got some new goodies to continue the build.
    Will be mocking up the pumps and installing the pump supports. Still have some welding on the
    BK

    Two 200L (52gal.) tanks w/covers for sale. These are 14ga. stainless with dish bottoms. Could
    be used as direct fire kettle, MT, HLT or a fermenter with a little work. Asking $450 ea. Local
    pickup pre...

    So maybe I took a little longer away then planned. But back on the project. I am installing a
    spa panel on the side of the power distribution panel. Also relocated the filters to the rear
    of the frame...

  • Posted in thread: Expandable Control Panel Advice on 07-10-2012 at 04:57 PM
    If your future plans are to increase to 1-1/2 bbl. then consider building at least a 60A
    capacity panel. I am using two panel boxes so everything isn't crammed in and it allows for
    easier expansion. J...
