Nice, a SS triclamp counterflow HEX coil. Though it does seem like it would act as a radiator, how far do you have to set the HLT temp higher to hit the mash temp you're after?

I really like the drawer for all the small bits like stoppers and stuff. I need to come up with something for that, I am starting to have stuff EVERYWHERE

Yeah, the drawer is definitely good to have. It was one of those cheap plastic / Rubbermaid type drawers that I had lying around so I just screwed it into the brew stand and it holds all of the miscellaneous stuff in one place. Thats the advantage of a wooden brew stand...you can easily add stuff on to it.

Started with one Blichmann burner then added another, then the plate chiller so I just built a sculpture to put it all on. Will test run this weekend.

I just watch the temp on the mash and adjust accordingly. The coil is there to maintain the mash temp. When I start a brew day I fire up the burners under the MT and the HLT Once I hit the dough in temp I kill the MT burner and start the recurc.

We are having a big brew day for the local club on Sunday. I'll take some pics and post them.

You could look at Kal's write-up in the electric brewing section for a good, detailed plan for an awesome control panel.

Brouwerij Kabouter would be the one to talk to he built one recently for a member....I think it's called a panel mount enclosure or something like that. A very ergonomic design.

You can't brew beer on that. It won't work.
