Default Final build up before my first brew.

So today, I finally had time to work on my brewery. I've been sourcing parts for a month or so now, and it's time to get them together.
Step one, finish mashtun.



I test fitted, and leak tested and everything was great. Then filled it with water, and I got a complete drain with my manifold design.

Nice, looks like you soldered all your fittings though- what are the plans for cleaning it?

Next, I moved to my keggles. To put a damper on any discussion, these were legally sourced through a local distributor.

I cut both freehand with my disc grinder.


Next, I drilled both for my ball valves, and my boil pot for a sight tube.




All I really have left to do at this point is put some fittings on my wort chiller, and I'm considering a sparge arm for the mlt. Get everything cleaned up, and I should be ready to get my first batch in.

Thanks for looking, and as always, comments and ideas for improvement are welcome.

Not all of the fittings are soldered. I can pull the manifold straight out and should have no cleaning issues. If I do, I can always redo it without the solder on any of the joints.
