Did a quick boil test to test to adjust the PID and to see how the heating element performed. Got a major overshoot, couldnt figure out why, until I found out that the I-value was oposite to what I thought. Next time I will try and nail it.

I got a good vigorous boil going. The outside stays cool due to the insulation and the insulated lid helps keeping the energy lost low when ramping up the temperature

Sorry for the phone quality pics

What are the caps over the terminals on your elements? Those are A LOT cleaner looking than the box-ins ive seen on most.

The elements came with waterproof caps on and are threaded. There is a fitting welded to the HLT and kettle. A single o-ring keeps it watertight

how did you contact them outside ebay? and did you just ask for a price, cause I see people are engaging bidding wars on the kettles?

Very nice! The US needs to get something like this. The boilermakers are nice, but quite expensive. I have one of the old italian brew kettles, but I think they stopped selling them because of the shipping costs. Interesting to see how brewing evolves in other countries. Darwin was right!

As far as your schematic and sculpture, you guys clearly know what you're doing....but if you're splitting the beer amongst 6 people, you're gonna have to brew frequently!
