Here are some pictures of my new Herms brew system.
I still need to paint the frame and insulate the HLT and MT.
A big thanks to Swagman from the brewboard for all of his hard work on my system. Without him I would not have this new system.

Thats one sweet rig. Swagman does some nice work. I want to get one of those full SS bottoms from him for my MT.
What did you use for burners/valves?

The top pic in post #2. Is that a flow meter, or a viewing glass for 02 mixing?

It is a sight glass for viewing the color/clarity of the wort as it comes out of the Herms coil.

Thanks SB. Yeah the full false bottoms will be nice. I bought the 170,000 BTU cast iron burners from Agri supply. The regulator came from them as well.
