It would appear I can no longer edit entries???
Anyway, I am finally going to wrap up my brewery and thought I would update the thread.
Here is the MLT (left) and BK (right)
They are each 24 qt. stainless from Bayou Classics. All connections are silver soldered.
Here is a shot of the inside of the MLT, it has a Jaybird Falsie supported by a thermoplastic tubing ring, a snap lock return hose, and a thermowell for receiving my PID's RTD probe.
Here is a closer shot of the probe; it sits just above the false bottom.
The boil kettle includes a tangential return, bottom drain, heating element, and thermowell. Here is a shot of the heating element.
The outside f the kettle has a metal receptical box silver soldered in place over the element nut.
The tangential return is just a swagelok and a stainless elbow:
Anyway, All that is left now is to build my stand for it and finish the pump box. I have all the parts now, so I just need to find some time. I really want to brew with a friend just after the holidays, so I am pushing to finish soon!
