Hello All,

First time poster and I thought I would kick things off with some pics of my new build. I decided to go with hard line and sanitary fitting throughout and I'm pleased with how things are coming along, albiet slowly. My welds could have been better, and I had some problems with my argon back purge so I got some sugaring on a few of them. I'm hoping to have this finished by the end of May, or early June at the latest. I'll post more as I progress.

Wow. Welcome to HBT.
That is impressive. So you're going with electric HLT and RIMS but gas fired BK?
Don't you want the RTD probe on the output side of the RIMS tube? That's where I've seen them and where mine is.

wow, looks great. I really like how those fittings make the element connections so clean (pun half intended)

Thanks for the complements everyone.

@bendavanza There on the end of the tube there is a end cap with a temp probe threaded in. The tee fitting is the input side, I just have not welded in the output fitting fro the tube yet. In total there are five temp probes, two for the RIMS, and one per kettle.

@cascadia Got the valves off eBay, first four were super cheap, last two were spendy.

@bendavanza going gas BK for now. Eventually would like to upgrade and put another 2" ferrule on the bottom and make it full electric.
