OK well it's finally done....mostly completely.
Filter mounted, pump shield mounted, switch wired and mounted and rear wheels mounted.
I can brew on it. I will brew on it soon. Yeah the HLT valve and thermometer are kind of backwards oriented but that's how I needed it for the previous setup and this will still work so......
Now I have to plan the first recipe for it and christen it!
Filter: - The hard line just reaches inside the HLT and I could tweak it inward about a half inch but it's actually fine as-is.
Switch: - I took this rocker out of an outdated office machine that was torn down for scrap. Ultimate recycling!
Pump shield: - Made from aircraft grade .040 thick aluminum I had lying around. I bent it up on a cheap Harbor Freight metal brake.
Rear wheels: - Just lift the front and roll it on the rear wheels. Works really well and I can leave the kettles on it without a problem. Can't leave the MT cooler though. It will slide away. Wheels are lawn mower wheels from the hardware store with half inch hubs. I used half inch bolts and nylock nuts.
Full shot complete:
For the record the Miller Lite cans in the background are my wife's. Not that there's anything wrong with Miller Lite........
Note the bottles....those would be some of my latest samplers. Lagunitias, Bells, Founders, Bells, and Bells.
Did I mention Bells?
