Exactly. It's too easy.

Where are you getting the wood for your walls? Is it just pallet wood for example or something else? Looks cool!

It's wood I have found on the side of the road, or old fences my dad took down (he has rental property), some pallets, old wood chairs, old furniture I cut up..basically any wood I can get for free.

Just a hint...
Make your MLT return hose inside the MLT MUCH longer. You want that thing to WRAP around the top of the grain bed and rest on top of it. I ran mine like your photo shows for a few batches and I think I was having trouble with channeling. The return line would dig itself down into the grainbed.
Looking GREAT though...

I used to have a long one and I hated it, as long as it sits flat I don't see an issue. I do 1 hour sparges and it's very slow, I don't think it will be an issue. I will see....

What was it that you dis-liked so much? I changed mine up to be removable... Cam lock fitting on the vessel wall, and a female cam lock on the hose end the out to a street elbow. I don't have picture of mine... will try to grab a picture this evening. Makes it REAL easy to remove for clean-up.

Here is a picture from where I got the idea. It is VERY nice to be able to remove that hose.
