      Thanks mate, looks even more awesome knowing that it's functional and speccy. I've got some strips of NZ tawa floorboard that'll fit the bill nicely. Are your straps stainless or galv? Also did you rivet or screw the staves to the metal straps? Anything you'd do differently if u did it again? Cheers

        I used galvanised strapping as i couldnt find SS anywhere. Staves are screwed through pre-drilled holes in the strapping. Took me two attempts to get the spacing of the staves right so that they wrap around the vessel with perfect circumference.

        Nothing I'd do differently to be honest, it's pretty well put together and still looks the same as the day i made it, despite getting a full wash-down each time after I brew.

        Sweet, thanks for the tips. I've added this to the brew house improvement list. Cheers

      Judge - I'm totally impressed by the system shown in your profile pic - particularly your stave wrapped kettle! Do you have any other photos you can share to help a fellow brewer looking to improve and upgrade? Cheers. Mark

        Hey Tilt, yeah I can give you some tips and show you some more pics.

        It's actually my mash tun. I have a gallery about it somewhere, let me see if I can find it.

        Yeah no idea where it is on this new version of the forums. Anyway, the cladding is Tasmanian Oak around a layer of polyurethane foam (think it's PU foam) from Clark rubber. It's wrapped around a keggle and removable too. Again, I have pics of this somewhere and some basic details about it... I'll try again and find it for you.

    <p><span style="font-size:12px;"><span style="font-family:arial;"><span style="color:rgb(34,34,34);">I started brewing in 2006, but it was generally at local brew-it-yourself places and occasionally using kit brews at home. It moved to doing partial grain brews on my stove at home using standard 10L cooking pots and scaling up the volumes with boiled water and steeped hops. The outcomes were fine, but I needed to move to all grain brewing on a larger scale. That happened in 2013 when I created my HERMS.</span></span></span></p>
