HLT on a ladder. Mt on some Tupperware. BK on a rolling platform. Shouldn't there be some bear traps on the floor?

Haha, well I got about 87% efficiency! My first attempt at a fly sparge. We'll see if I have the balls to rig it up again tomorrow.

Pics before and after the super-upgrade of a valve and shiny stuff. Went from ghetto to Space:1999. Props to Martin Landau!
