Dialing in the site glasses from Bobby, these are really great units.

Sweet! Both the HLT and Boil kettle are fired up using my old setup. HLT controlled by an A419 with a 1500W element, and boil controlled by a 3500W element -- no controller, just plug in and boil! I'm running out of beer, so I need to brew ASAP. I am going to use my old igloo cooler with false bottom to knock out some brews. I need to figure out how to setup the ball valve and adapt it to the Blingman false bottom next. I'll be putting in an order with bobby to figure this out soon!

If you rotate those pump heads 90º so that the outlet is on top (inlet on bottom) they will prime easier (also helps them drain better after cleaning)

*edit - nice work by the way!

I have heard this a lot, but this is exact same setup I have already ran for years. I have never had a single issue with priming or cleaning. I don't understand how people have issues with priming these pumps. As long as it's below water line it has always worked fine for me

I'm actually brewing right now and will take a pic when sparging

Brewing this morning with my old mash tun -- the new one isn't finished yet. I need to get some beer out! Brewing a red oatmeal IPA. So far this system is working great. Just need to finish the mash tun and HLT coil.

Very soon! My last bit of hardware is arriving from bobby and the brewery will be finished. I am putting up more and more wood trying to finish up the wood wall. First week in March I will have new pictures

Cheers

Is there a thread on how to make those bottle lamps?

I just saw the bottle cutter. Cut off bottom, insert lamp, plug in. I was thinking the bottoms were still on somehow.
