Now that I've actually made a batch I guess I can post here.

It's a two vessel all electric using a 5500 W kettle and 5500 W RIMS. I get on demand sparge water from my tap through the RIMS, so I can fly sparge without the HLT.



The pump's inside the toolbox, the RIMS is bolted to the top.



Here's the panel, yea its' got a clear front, not my best aesthetic choice.



And here it is recirculating the first mash.



After a couple more shakedown brews I'll pull it apart and polish/insulate.

Fantastic system, I like it a lot. You can always spray paint the inside of the control box to make it opaque and still leave the exterior finish. I've been contemplating using my 5500w RIMS to do away with my HLT as well.

thanks, look great!!!

Another woody. How's the plywood under the burner look? Is it turning brown?

Keep an eye on it, if it starts to smoke, spray it with a hose. You'll then need to replace it.

Or, you can do like I did and get a sheet of aluminum diamond plate and turn it into a heat shield. I have 2x6s that the burner sits on. It's open right under the burner, but they still got hot enough to smolder. The heat shield should help.

Looks way to close too the frame and MHL JMO, the burner will be kicking out tons of heat out the sides of the BK.
Purchase some large square tiles for the BK base, also think about shielding the face of the MLT uprights in tile.
Heat with the adhesive on the vertical may be an issue?
