Default My new HERMS

Just finished my herms build and completed my first all-grain brew last night. Was really pleased with how it went and even managed to hit the OG I was shooting for and actually went over .002. All things considered I'm a pretty happy camper at the moment.

looks a nice set-up, and great to have hit your OG first time around.

Looks like its just a runoff catch for the pump and lines. I do the same thing with mine

Looks good! Temperature automation? If so, what controls did you go with?

Yes the blue bucket is to catch the vent from the pumps as well as the drain from the hoses when disconnected and I used an Auber PID temp controller. It is the $41 1/16 Din one sorry don't have the model number on me atm.
