When I can get home from work where photobucket is blocked and actually see something besides red X's, I'll echo slimer's response.

Sweet thread!

Gives me great ideas for automation when I finally decide to go that way. Love the control panel and patch-panel for the pump...

You know, I didn't ask the name of it. The no-rinse stuff he said takes 15-25 minutes of contact to sanitize. Which is why when he needed to re-sanitize one of the corny kegs of yeast he mixed up a batch of Idophor, since he says that only needs 5-10 minutes of contact.

Wow! Thanks so much for the pics and descriptions! It's amazing how similar this is to the typical brew day that all of us have. I guess in the end, we're all just making beer.

That pipe patch panel was freakin' awesome.

Questions:

1. What does he use for a heat exchanger?
2. What about hops filter (for the kettle)?

Looking to glean ideas from one of the "big guys"...
