I can just imagine this conversation at work...

"Hold on a second on kicking off this meeting Steve, my Saison is fermenting a bit high and I need to kick my fermentation fridge on. Okay, done. Now where were we in these expense reports?"

Gadgets like that are EXACTLY what I love about brewing your own beer. You can go as crazy in your own little world as you like! Awesome.

I did it on my build, and I've got a completely custom setup that does what I want it to. Weldless is cool, but soldering really is easy and the results are excellent.
have any of you thought about Stout Tanks and Kettles http://conical-fermenter.com/products/ welded and tri-clamp...

One question though, don't you mean "Flux Incapacitator"?

This actually came up when I was deciding the name in the first place, and after a few beers with some of my buddies we decided that it made a little more sense to alter "capacitor" as it's used in Back to the Future instead of using incapacitator. Plus I think that just doesn't quite roll of the tounge as nicely as incapacitor!

And Jason, didnt mean to steal your sign off man... I've borrowed it and now I am putting it back!

Great job on the build!! Yea, this inspired me to redo my entire control box as well. I am going to be working on a new brew rig this spring...the control box will be moved over but it will also give me reason to re-vamp it as well.

Looking forward to seeing more on this! SUBSCRIBED!

Sounds awesome man, it's always exciting to have a new "project". I've found however that no matter what it is I've just finished there's always just that "one more thing" I could use to make my brewing process just a bit easier.

I am afraid after finishing this rig that could involve the training of live apes or maybe seals; not sure how my significant other would respond to that one...
