Marc, the last pic is the "mountain of stainless" as you called it I have to move so Christy can park in the garage again. I HAVE to get Humberto over to build my storage area...
Evan,

Thanks for posting the pics and putting the watchdog on guarding the kettles!

What was the basis for the position of your whirlpool port? I was looking for recommendations on placement and didn't find anything too specific. I was thinking about a quarter of the way up the tank and an inch in from the edge.

We spent a bit of time searching around but ended up going with similar setup as Stout. I have brewed on their systems and know others that have them with no issues with their whirlpool capabilities.

Using your number that should have been 10248 grams of CO2 (or 20496 grams using 0.489)
and therefore using the same conversion to volume at STP (522.03 litres / 1024.8 grams) it gives ~10500 litres
:
Ah that website's math was incorrect. They did 44/180 instead of 88/180 which is correct, but doesn't come up with 4.89 grams, but .489 grams. Since you can't have more grams of CO2 than the sugar you started with. I get 2053.8 Grams of CO2 with the .489 grams from 4200G of sugar. (4200*.489=2053.8 CO2) and from that I get 1047.85 Liters. (2053.8/1.96Grams per liter~(obtain by (44.0g/mole) x (1 atm) x (1 L) / [(0.0821 Latm/moleK) x (273 K)]) ) which is 4.5lbs of CO2, much better than the other amount.

Clear coat on, get through Mother's Day and we'll be ready to rock and roll on Monday! Hopefully the custom hood will be ready next week so we can get that in and ducted.

Very nice..did you also paint 3-4 inches up the wall from the floor up? Here in South Florida we.are forced to silicone the edges from the floor to walls and when painting we have to paint up the wall 4 inches...this avoids any spills from getting under the walls or on the walls

Yep, we went all the way up the 8" concrete. Also have FRP on the walls behind the kettles and anywhere that can get wet and that is sealed to the epoxy.
