I haven't participated in the B&V forum for over a year now, but thought I'd check back in. I'm glad to see many of the same names still doling out helpful information, answering questions, and discussing this great hobby we all share.

I'm beginning to document some of my homebrewing equipment, and thought I'd post the links here. I started with my brewing bench, which I have grown to love in the past 18 months. Feedback and/or criticism is welcome!

Also, if this post is viewed as spam or unwanted, just let me knwo and I'll refrain from posting more links.

Bean,

Thanks for sharing I am in the process of converting an old work bench to a similar set-up. One of my priorities will mobility so your perspective and details are very helpful.

thanks

George

Nice tie down straps on the HLT. I remember once, mine flew up in the air while I was brewing.

Searching the archives for pictures of my ugly creations is not allowed.

Pete - don't be so sure. I'm finding myself with loads of spare time and my hobby may once again blossom. Bellybuster Bob - I remember talking with you about your separate heat exchanger before or as I was building mine. So far, I'm very happy with it's simplicity and performance.

Thanks for the comments guys!

If you heat up some water and put the counter flow chiller in to it add PBW and let it soak awhile. Rinse with water and heat up more water. This time soak it in Star San let it sit awhile. The copper counter flow should be bright polish with a little steel wool. It should look like new.
