Default Can't wait for the deliveries to start

Today I started ordering my parts to basically copy Kal's Electric Brewery. I figure why try and reinvent the wheel.

I ordered two 20 gallon Blichmanns, I will use a converted keg I have from sabeco as an HLT. I also ordered everything to get the kettles set up with Herms and such. I will order the stuff for the hoses, another pump and the stuff for the control panel later.

Nice... you will post pictures of your build, right?

I'm in the same boat here coffee...well actually the oposite boat.

I ordered all my parts for the Panel first and am currently wiring it (GET THE RATCHETING CRIMPERS!!! trust me) and I just recently started placing orders for the actual brew section stuff.

Figure by the time I finish the wiring (it's a tight fit in my box as I added some things) the Bliches should be here.


Although I'm still deciding if I want to go Tri-Clover Camlocks or those MoreBeer SS QD's...

Mmmmm those are the best days, like Xmas with all the parts coming in. I'm a little jealous.

best days my ass...I'm draining my corny's at a rate I may not have compensated for...now I'm starting to feel a time constraint

I think I have about another month or two before I might have to consider either rationing the good stuff...or buying commercial...

I was worried about exactly that, so I'm building my new system from the ground up, then I'll sell my old propane stuff when the e-brewery is up and running.

A few packages in the mail yesterday. Got my pids, ssrs and rtd's yesterday along with a few other odds and ends.

Although I do appreciate their looking out for me, my credit card company put a freeze on my account when I purchased so much stuff so it took me a few calls and had to get Norther Brewer to put through the charge for the Blingmanns again.

Saturday my 5500w elements arrived. I picked up a 60" unfinished sink base at Lowe's with a 6' counter top. Also picked up some odds and ends to start running the 50amp run to the man cave. I also ordered most of the rest of the stuff I will need to finish my set up. Have not been this excited to see what the mail/fed-ex/ups has brought in a long time.

Got my 2 Blingman 20 gal pots delivered this morning. On Wednesday, I got my control panel box and have been receiving multiple packages every day. I need to stop at the HD and pick up some 10/3 wire and can start punching holes in the Blingmans for the heating elements and the converted keg I already had for the HLT with the HERMS coil. I am copying "The Electric Brewery" from Kal for inspiration. I say "why re-invent the wheel when someone has gone the extra-ordinary steps and given you all directions and a complete shopping list. The only thing I will not be able to re-create is his absolute awesomeness.
