Nike to see BK continuing to design and execute his ideas, that will be one hell of a setup.

That's awesome! I think it looks like a great system. I love my HERMS. The only thing I didn't like was using ice for the HEX. I mean, I wanted a pump so I wouldn't have to do any lifting, and then putting 40 pounds of ice in the HLT for the HEX defeated the purpose. So I added a CFC, and now it's perfect!

I would love to see this system in action. Nice job!

I think Rich plans to use it at his store in Slinger sometimes. You will have to stop by when that time comes.

I just want to be at home working on this... it makes it hard to be at work, do dishes, mow the lawn, etc.

Gar... more time needs I.

Really don't want to thread gank, so I'm only doing this by request.. but I have just completed a DITCHES build all electric. It is an amazing system, total props to BK! I got pics of the first brew day on it and will make a thread for it later tonight. Here's it cleaned, then while chilling:
