Ok, so i know that there are tons of threads and pics of DIY mash tuns but i had to share with my fellow beer geeks. I am relativity new to brewing still, I have completed 5 home brews and currently fermenting my 6th. I will be trying my luck at all grain brewing in the near future. I am stoked and just wanted to share my excitement with everyone else.

Have you leak tested? It doesn't look tight enough... I just built mine the same as yours (minus the ss braid) and I really had to get it tight

yeah that was the first thing i did. The washer inside looks loose but only because i have 2 rubber seals so the washer would not sit flush. It actually leaked when i only had one rubber washer on it. Anyway i super freaking stoked to try my hand at AG.....
