Thanks! I've toyed around with pulling a Pol and writing it up for BYO. Maybe you guys can motivate me.

Here's what's arguably the most clever (and space-saving) bit. Chiller and pump all in one package:

FWIW, the BYO thing had absolutely no detail. My build threads here on HBT on the other hand have copious amounts of build detials, parts lists, suppliers and pricing. I wouldnt go to BYO to detail a build.

Write it up for us! It looks perfect for all of those in apartments or small spaces. What was the build cost? Inquiring minds want to know.....

Didn't realize there'd be so much interest in a little system! Give me a few days to round up my BOM and I'll start a new thread in DIY. I built it piecemeal last fall / winter so I've never worked up the grand total, but I'd guess I've got around $400 in it.

Wow, I have $400 invested in my brewpots alone. I would love to build this for my sister who is moving into a small apartment and wants to get into brewing but can't because of space.

+1 on the write up. I could use something like that in my apt for small batches/test batches... people say brewing small batches is not worth it, but I always want to brew when I'm bored and something like this that I could leave set up is awesome...

Coderage came up with this image:



I also made a bunch of schematics detailing the step with the system I designed at the end of the link posted above. A search of "brutus 20" will yield a number of threads about the system and its capabilities.

I think JK put a twist on this one with a separate CFC in a bucket, which is very interesting to me.
