Looking good. Thank you Martin.
Any chance to have it in the Open Office / Libre Office format?

Aren't the kegs property of the brewery? Don't they cost the brewery $100 or more? This isn't passing the sniff test...
Yeah, try $150 for new one.

Drag on 3/16 tubing is 3 psi / ft (that is what I heard).
If you have 5 ft tubing it should be 5 X 3 = 15 or 5 ft of tubing should handle 15 psi in your keg.

I do sanitize the keg post but I do not sanitize the connector (you could if you want to).
I sanitize tubing only if I have backflow to the CO2 lines.

And we did boil today.
I was tripping main breaker when all 12 elements were on and pump was on.
After adjustment of over current in main breaker (most likely caused by pump) everything went smooth.

A few stats.
I can raise temp 1F a minute.
Once I have boil I can maintain nice boil at 50%.
Heat sink temp when fully on is about 130F.
I will vent the cabinet and add bigger fans for heat sinks.

Looking good.

We started as Thirsty Monk Brewing but had to change the name.

He used to be thirsty.
Then he brew some beer and now he is Lazy.

Thank you guys.
I did initial testing on Saturday and I will be testing more this week.
So far it is looking good and I am exited.
I need to install fan in the electrical box to dissipate the heat from SSR heat sinks

I blew thru two kegs today.
I will be brewing on Sunday to triage the situation.
I was thinking about Vienna Lager but I might switch to another Bohemian Dark Lager.
