Default HLT Herms Build

Just finished my HLT tank with HERMS coil. Just gotta add heating element then it's on to building the mash/lauter tun. ready to have all this done so I can see what all this electric brewing is all about.

I went with 50' just to be sure. That stuff is alot harder to bend than people say. Thought I was never gonna get it small enough.

Here's what I used to bend the coil. Started trying to do it by hand and foot and it started kinking on me so I quit and found this little miracle worker.
