My old setup was a little outdated, so I've spent the last year piecing this pile of garbage together. It's not fully operational yet (still need a few parts) but it's very close. Hopefully within the next few weeks I'll have all of the kinks worked out and be cranking out that sweet sweet beer.

Here's the porn you're all probably interested in... Thanks for everyone on HBT for the tons of info! I couldn't have done it without any of you. I even borrowed a lot of great ideas from some of you.

That's a pump mount I fabricated. Right now I'm running one pump until chugger gets another shipment. I built it so I would have another spot to mount the next one. It's also got a top for it, but it's not installed yet.

Geez! It looks more sturdy than a 'wallace' weldless stand!

Sure. It's not very elegant, but it works for now...

I'm not really a fan of this control box. I'll be painting it black when I get the time...but for now it works. Plus, it was $10. I'd like something that's dust/waterproof though.
