How did the hopstopper work?

Rather not spend a ton of money on the design.
I like the inverted rubbermaid tote idea.

Yeah it worked pretty well. I came up 1 quart short (left in the pot) although I drained with the valve wide open. Thinking if I restrict the flow it might do better. The wort was really clear. Been checking out your build. The stand and hood look really awesome. Did you buy Kal's control box kit?

Hey cidah, can you build me one of those?
Maybe we could do a group buy on parts and have Cidah assemble them!

Thanks guys

haha - I actually really enjoyed the wiring part. the fabrication is the trickiest. As my dad says,... measure twice, cut once.

How come we couldn;t have done the group buy on parts BEFORE I did my build haha!

Jeff do you know how hot your hood are gets when you brew? Have you temped it? Was thinking you want to be sure to go with something that will stand up to that heat. I would be wary of using anything plastic unless it has heat ratings

I abandoned the hood idea. I have no easy way to vent it outside due to how my garage is built (cinder-block walls). So I am just going to get some more hardibacker tile board to line the ceiling area above my brew pot then use some galvanized sheet metal on top of that to make it look nice. Lowes sells 3ft by 4 ft sheets of it in the heater/ducting area for like $9 a sheet. Then I'll just use a fan to circulate air in and out of my garage.
