And after a lot of HBT research, went with a 300 micron stainless screen cylinder to filter hop pellets.

Next to last post from me on this build. Got. Sweet cover as a Christmas present from my parents. Obviously, the bikes have to get hung up somewhere else, and I'll probably put up a sheet of stainless on the wall behind the kettles.

HUGE thanks to Kal, Paul, Kevin, and so many others for their inspiration and guidance.

Nice job man! Congrats and enjoy the fruits of your labor. I'm sure I'm going to have a few questions as I approach the final steps of my build.

Even the cover looks slick! Is that custom made just for your brewery?

Yes, the cover was custom made. I leave all of the silicon hoses hanging off the front of the kettles, and the cover fits over it all very nicely. Contact info for the company that made it below...

By the way, all of the ingredients for brew day #1 have been obtained (making 10 gallons of something between an Abita Turbodog and a DFH India Brown). Looks like I'll be brewing tomorrow!

If I get off early enough today, I will be brewing tomorrow... You will still likely beat me to the finish line. Good job man, let us know how it works!
