Inspired by Blackheart, I spent my lunch hours over the last month and a half making this:



Enjoy!

Really nice! Other than the chilling in the BK at the end, this is exactly like my setup, step by step.

Feel free to steal the .bmp and use it or change it if you want. If you edit it in GIMP, each frame shows up as a separate layer.

this is an amazing design. I have spent many hours studying and building what you are showing in your designs with a few alterations. I am finally going to do my first all grain brew day this weekend and am laying out what my steps will be. How would I go about opening your process description/illustration on my computer? Can you send me the file?

If you are talking about the animation thing, just right click and save as a .gif file. Then you can open it in GIMP and it will show up as a crap load of layers.

Glad you like my ideas!

Thanks. How far along are you in your build? How did you determine the right distance to mount your burners from the bottom of your kettles?

I have the BK done and the MLT done. I have both pumps and all my TRi fittings. I need the stand, burners and mostly everything now. I build slow as funds allow. It makes this thread a lot less fun....
