    I've just finished building the setup.
    I had the grainfather already and was looking to expand. So when brewing larger batches the grainfather turns into a herms system for the insulated ss brewtech mash tun, a HLT for sparging, second pump and temp control. I've tested the herms setup and it works well. But I'm yet to do a brew on the overall setup. The good thing retaining the grainfather is I have a large range from 10 litre to 76 litre brews. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out.

    I am thinking of doing something very similar with my 20L Braumeister and using a 10gallon SS Infussion mash tun and a 75 litre kettle. Running it vertically as I will be pushed for space. I reckon it will be good for 50 litre batches whilst using the Brau's temperature and timer controller unit.

    How is your new rig going? I'm about to order the 20 gallon infusion mash tun and a boil kettle. Hopping to be be able to do 70 litre batches.
    Is your kettle 100l?
