Great thread, awe-inspiring seeing it all come together. Everything looks incredibly polished, well thought out and planned, impeccably executed. I also like the fact that you are not just some ridiculously wealthy dude with a lot of money to burn - this is your blood, sweat and tears. This is your (and your wife's apparently) dream, which makes it all the more awesome. It almost makes it an achievable reality for your average Joe like myself. Prost and congrats!

I still walk in there almost every day, and say, " wow, we really did it!"

Dude, I'd be like a kid in a candy store with a $100 bill burning a hole in my pocket.

Here's one of the improvements.
Dude this is super slick! Is the probe in a thermowell?

Probe is taped to the side of the fermenter.
May install a thermowell at some point, to see if there is a difference.

Layne, I’ve just stumbled onto this thread....went through what I thought was every page, so my question which I couldn't find; if you had to ballpark the total cost (including the sweet rig set-up) what did it run i.e. building, equipment etc.?

I’m only asking as oddly enough I had the exact same idea (but on a much smaller scale, about half that size (obviously, not as many friends as you might have)).

I realize if you don’t want to post it (or if you’ve already posted it and I missed it). All-in-all very much full of awesomeness!!

I’m off to the store to get me some more lotto tickets for sure now!

Having gone through a somewhat similar build in scope I'd say 100 grand give or take based on regional differences and the amount of sweat equity put into it.

A bargain I say!!!
