To quote the Pol, "There needs to be a "Brut" thread for all Brutus owners to showcase thier stuff"

Well, the Pol, here it is! I expect to see your "20"!

Prost!

LOL, I still can't get over the impeccable timing of your post.

I hope that more people showcase their Brutus builds on this thread, whether they are electric, countertop, or whatever. I'm interested in seeing all the variations that people come up with. Everyone should feel free to post as many detailed pics (plumbing, wiring, etc.) as they want, especially you, President of the Brutus Cult.

I'm not sure if my build qualifies as a "Brutus", but I will certainly show it off here when it's done. It certainly has a lot of design features that I borrowed from the "Brutus 10" (gas beam, HLT temp control, single tier, square tube frame) and a lot that is unique to my build. Love this thread idea!

Man Lonnie your systems so sano, small, compact and simple looking with a small panel control as if it's missing a ton of extra spaghetti lines hanging everywhere. Looks like a rather small footprint also. Nice and low for the vertically challenged.
What kid of heat loss in degress you read from kettle to kettle going thru the pump and back? I was thinking insulated silicone tubing as a wild idea for a friend with limited amps available, this included insulating the pump head also.
We're leaning towards that 2" wool with aluminum skin covering.
