SEE FIRST PAGE NEAR SSRs
Temp controlled ferm cabinet / humidor underneath? Then a furniture grade "cover" for the top so you can hide it in plain sight?

Warm...

This is a very compact build, no room for a ferm cabinet etc. 48W x 20D x 40H

Few more photos posted of the work top that will be mounted to the enclosed furniture grade stand. See page one.

Classy. I think my other half would allow that in the kitchen. Well done, sir. Looking forward to the finished product. I assume the control panel will be of similar style?
I'd hate to spill beer on that.

I really like the plumbing panel idea. I think that is a great design feature.

Panel is a BCS, it will be 100% virtual. No physical switches. What you see there, is all you see.

I have another of those SS plates, heat shields from Blichman, it may end up being etched with the brewery name and used as a name plate.

Pol - Couple of pump questions:

Are you using tri clovers on the pumps? I see only the barb on the output - can't tell on the input.

No ball valve on the pump output?

I will also be using the same pumps - did you just use a regular step down from 3/4" to 1/2" for the pump inlet?

thanks in advance!

You need to look at the pics I posted on the first page. It shows the pump oultets coming out of the plumbing panel with (3) piece ball valves. All of the pumps, RIMS heater, electronics are hidden. What you see in those photos is all you see, that is all there is.

No ball valve on the pump output?

See above response

3/4" x 1/2" SS reducing coupler (MPT x MPT)


thanks in advance!
There ya goooo
