Default Finally some Brutus Pics

Well, I've been getting some help from you guys on my brutus build so I figured I owed you some pics.

I brewed my first beer on it yesterday, an ordinary bitter. Everything went fairly well. I over shot my O.G. by 10 points so I'm getting a pretty damn good efficiency on it.

Enjoy!

One more during the boil. Those paint strainers work awesome and so does the whirlpool return when cooling.

Nice Rig! What's that thingy on top of the pot. The thing with the 3 arms and what looks like some pvc tube.
Thanks
