I mounted mine about 4 feet away on the wall of my garage. Keeps it out of the way of liquid/water hose.

Those kegs look so shiny! How long did it take you to get them like that?

Have you started to drill the holes yet?

I know you're not talking about my rig!

But I agree- those other systems are awesome. I LOVE the look of Lehr's & Kosmo's shiny vessels and all the bling the others show.

They are NOT intimidating, though. Well, maybe at first. But when you know what each thing does, it's really simple and fun to use.

I think between 6 and 8 hours each... one was petty bad. Alot of work but i am mostly happy.. with how they came out,

No holes drilled yet.... that is my big worry, drilling in the wrong spot.. a buddy is gonna tig them for me as soon as i drill so hopefully i can get it done this weekend

Its really not that bad as long as you take your time and are patient. im not quite done yet so i cant speak to ease of use but thats what i was going for... simple

Pj is a great asset to this sight and will help draw a diagram and even call u and walk u through the tough parts of your panel build..

Thanks Yoop... my swmbo calls me a ferret cause i get sidetracked by "shiny"... lol

My pots started off looking like this....



I gave up on the polished look and just sanded them with 400 grit to give them a satin finish...

If you are going with a single tier, HLT, Mash tun, Boil kettle, going left to right, I decided to mount my panel to the left, with all cords coming out of the bottom. If mounted to the right of the boil kettle, you get the steam coming out, etc. The HLT just heats water, no stirring, no boiling, no splash.
