I think if I continue to have issues with water cooling after getting the box all sealed up, I
will probably scrap the whole idea and pick up a used AC unit for $25 on craigslist and mount
that to the...

Looking at your photos again I see two things different with our setups. One is my chamber is
actually divided in two smaller chambers, so the volume/transmission cooler is half what you

Oh yes, I love a nice Citra hop as well.So last night I pulled another pint and tasted it.It
