    image.jpg image.jpg Here's mine. It's at version/upgrade #4 since going to AG back in 2008.
    40lt HLT, 60lt jacketed mash tun, 60lt kettle, HEX, magnetic pump, STC 1000's for temp control, built in timer all flows controlled by ball valve including underletting in the mash tun. Now if only I could get the timer on the HLT to work.
    Did two double batches back to back yeaterday (80lt) and not one spill.

    Trying something new today. Using my 90 Ltr kettle and a big BIAB bag with the Herms. I cut some stainless perf and sat it ontop of a colander to make a false bottom. Seems to be going smoothly. 70 Ltrs of water and 12kg of grain is pretty well maxed out. Hoping to get 2 cubes of 1.060 ish Black IPA. 20170917_103936.jpg 20170917_103931.jpg

    I'm pretty wrapped with how this setup worked. Easy clean up and got 45 Ltrs of wort plus 3 Ltrs of starter wort and some to spare at 1.055.

    Funny you should say that. It's actually my great aunt ties table. I felt a bit guilty hacking into it with the multi tool.

    Second brewday on the new rig. Loving the inline oxygen stone kit. Fermentation was cranking 2 hours after pitching.

    Here's mine...all home made from a cheap keg, flashed stc-1000+ controller with variable voltage regulators, kettle elements, bunnings shelving and a KK pump. Getting it dialled in nicely - yesterday's brew was a 1.051 pale ale which got about 90% mash efficiency and 78.5% BH efficiency.

    Here's mine. New to the forum. Been brewing on this system for 6 months now. Gas fired BK. Gas also on the HLT to do the heavy lifting and then a 2000W element for maintaining temp. HERMS with 2 pumps. Basic Keg King temp controller to keep at target temp. IMG_2485.jpg Will eventually move to a proper electric panel, but that's way off..... For now, it's simple and it works.

    IMAG1894.jpg I've been building this piece by piece for the past few years when I've had the money to put toward it and the time to build it. Nearly complete.

    I like gas but have decided to go electric in my setup currently under construction. The 50 litre boiler (which will be boiling about 36 litre batches) has 2 X 2200 watt elements. Currently working on the control panel; not as fancy as some but functional. I also decided to go gravity from the HLT.
