What Did You Do Over the Christmas Holiday?

(1/5) > >>

dhacker:
I decided to build a newer, bigger, better, (mostly blue) mashtun . .

Coleman Extreme 70



All stainless outlet with Quick Connect



Dry Fitting Heat Manifold . .



Holes for Manifold Inlet/ outlet



Installed Braid Pickup



Soldered Manifold before clean up (Wish I would have had some Stay-Brite 8 low temp solder)  :(



Testing all the fits before cleaning up the manifold . .


Lots more to do . . but it's a start!


bluesman:
So a manifold and a braid. How does that work. Inquiring minds want to know.  ;D

dhacker:
The braid is for the wort pickup . . the manifold is a completely closed system and basically an indirect heating element to hold the mash temp rock solid for the duration OR to step mash if the need arises. I will have a separate heated water vessel and a March pump that is PID controlled to circulate hot water through the manifold to hold and/ or raise the mash temps . .

tygo:
I have the exact same cooler that I'm in the process of converting.  Except I will be nowhere near as innovative or thorough as you.  Nice setup!

Kaiser:
I'm putting up walls and shelves in the basement. It's about time this gets done so I have more room down there.
