I have finally completed my Brutus Build. I ended up getting very sick mid build and had to postpone things for several weeks. I finally finished it this past weekend and have already brewed three batches with it, learning something with each batch. I absolutely love this thing and just want to keep brewing all the time. Here are some pics from start to finish.

That is very nice, a professional looking build and finish for another Brutus 10 style system. How well are the burners firing with the replacement solenoid valves that have the correct opening pressure?
