Wow, that is nice! You made that window to fit the box fan; from a guy that did HVAC for 15 years, I bet it works great, just like a Whole-house fan. You do nice work!

@mikescooling The window was included when we bought the condo. The box fan fit nicely and pulls the vapors right out of the room. We also epoxy painted all of the walls in the room. So far so good after 6 brews. Now to improve my HERMS recirculation flow rate. My HLT runs at about 5-6 degrees higher than my mash temperature. I have no idea if this is normal, but the flow through the Morebeer Ultimate Sparge Arm is just a trickle. Though we haven't made a bad beer yet.

I recommend you build a sparge arm out of the Loc-Line fittings. It works VERY well.

True. Separate thread for the build (which we absolutely want to see) but final shiny pictures here.

Will do! Still painting right now, but. I've tried to snap pictures most every step of the way.
