Amazing! This looks great!

I am doing the exact same thing! Just waiting on my mesh. For my tube I actually am using a cut section from an old defunct corny keg for mine. My pal who is getting my mesh (forget the size but it is VERY fine for pellet hops) has some process where they seam and sew it together. Obviously you are much further along than I am!
