    I was also just going to do the wet run in the timber.

    Almost getting excited. Just did a bit of plumbing with what I had to see what I needed to order.

    I'm loving the sight glass. I've decided to remove the float switches for now.
    One was faulty and so im just going to put the thermistors in where they were for now.

    Don't need it. Plenty of breeze comes through.
    I've been brewing in this space several times and just isn't an issue.

    ???? Dont need it.

    100lt system with, at a guess 12% boil off for 90mins is 12lts of moisture that you relying on a breeze to remove.

    I think youre underestimating the importance of removing the moisture. But lets not get bogged down on it when you are so close to brew day.

    Yeah i thought it would be an issue as well.
    I've done about 5 x 80 litre brews and 2 or 3 100 litre brews with my old system.
    I even had 120 litres going for 1.5 hours and no issue at all.
    Pretty close to the beach and it just flows away.

    Got a hold of these. 15mm compression to 1/2" bsp.

    I'll be getting the stainless counterflow chiller from cheeky peak and the wort in and out is a 15mm tube.

    Fitted GPO's for the pumps.
    All up and running.
    Just sorting the dodgey mess on the wall circuit breaker.
    It was just a temp to get the panel going.

    Back to work on the 27th. Can I get a brew down before then?
    I'll smash a bit tonight but I'm kinda thinking as I'm going so it takes me longer.
    Just couldn't be fucked planning shit lol.

    Keep going mate, I have similar brew length aspirations (not all electric sadly) really enjoyed your work so far. If you work hard a Pressure ferment is well drinkable @ day6:party:
