after putting my keggle system together and agonizing over details that would save a few dollars, I couldn't imagine punching holes in a 900$ blichman system. Must be nerve racking. You must have nerves of steel.

It helps to have sold his previous brew rig. A dual element RIMS? cool idea, this must be why you wanted high flow rates. Very Very shiny.....and no fire to soot it up.

Punching 5 holes in a new Blichman was nerve racking... I admit.

Selling my previous system helps fund this build, also a blessed Xmas, also a little holiday bonus from the CEO and some other streams... it will be fully funded shortly.

I am moving much faster than I had thought I would really... The hardest part was building out the BK... that was hard.

Now I have my kettles, RIMS and pumps ready to intall on the stand, then I just have to wire up 10 SSRs to my BCS and such and it is done and ready to test.

I keep saying that the hard part is over... but I dont know. I do know that I have finished off (3) rolls of thread tape so far!

Very, Very nice Pol... Great job.

I really appreciate the way you often think "outside the box".

I'm having a hard time seeing how you'll need 10 SSRs.

4 elements, each needs (2) so that is 8
2 pumps, each needs (1) so that is 2

Total 10

You can't make beer on that. It won't work.

Man, that thing is sweet, and I am green with envy. I laid awake last night thinking about what gear I can sell to get a single blichmann. Those things are the balls.
