I did the final wet test on the system today with PBW and water rinse in preparation for brewing on weds or Thurs, if my order from Austin ever comes. There is a definite learning curve involved in running this system versus a cooler setup. I forgot to close a valve from the HLT before removing a ccam lock which led to some leakage and the check valve on the oxygen stone tubing did not work so I got water up into the regulator, but it doesn't do it when connect to the O2 bottle. Needless to say I learned some things, but then again that's the point. Luckily all the temp sensors and dials were all within one degree or less according to the Thermapen so that saved any headaches there. I shot a few vids, but none got saved apparently.

The real reason that we can't have the Ten Commandments posted in a courthouse is this: You cannot post "Thou Shalt Not Steal," "Thou Shalt
Not Commit Adultery," and "Thou Shall Not Lie" in a building full of lawyers, judges and politicians...It creates a hostile work environment.

Picked up a GFCI outlet for safety.

Nice build!

What is about GSD's that they manage to get in almost every picture? LOL, ours usually finds his way into almost every picture we take, usually just his tail or an ear.

We've got three, so there seems to be one in every room of the house, lol. They're great dogs, I don't think I'll ever get a different breed.

It's go time. Finally brewing in the morning!!!!!! Man, I've never been as excited to brew. I got the final steps done today in order to start it up for real in the morning. I had to build a collar on my ferm chamber in order to get two carboys in it (one on the hump), had to build a fan box for air recirculation in it, got the GFCI mounted, notched out an old lid for the Locline return and it fits perfectly in the opening of the MLT. I also found my vinyl numbering for the MLT sight glass that I thought I had lost so I got that sight glass calibrated and ready to roll. I'm not gonna sleep well tonight because of the anticipation. The first brew is gonna be the BYO clone for Bell's Two Hearted. Got the 20+ lbs of grains misted as I like doing wet milling. I like that beer, but it's not my favorite IPA. It is however my neighbor's favorite overall beer. My neighbor who also just had a very nice pool installed. I'm giving him half of this batch in return for access to the oasis, lol. This system is paying dividends already.

A couple more of the ferm chamber. It'll do until I can get a conical and stand up freezer. Holding temp very well.
