How does he clean out the laundry machine? I imagine it would involve flushing with water and hauling the buckets outside.

That's absolutely amazing! I'm sure it would freak some people out but I was reading his comments and it seems he did a pretty thorough job of cleaning it, replacing hoses, and making it usable for brewing.

The radiator is a great idea too!

Pretty nifty. I wonder how his beer tastes? I'd be concerned about a few things though like whether or not the pump is food grade and how do you clean antifreeze out of a radiator unless the radiator is new. (but that seems to go against the theme) If there is anything to HSA in wort then that would be a huge issue with all the foam he created going into the buckets.

Wow. That is something else. Initially, I was thinking total redneck setup, but that dude seems to know what he is doing. My only question is about the radiator and if it is soldered with lead based stuff. That and I highly doubt the pump is food grade. But who cares?! That thing is awesome!
