Robert, nice...

What is the size of the black O-ring on your bulkhead, and where did you get it?

it is a 3/4 "X 1/8" oring. I work on aircraft so these are readily available to me. I'm not sure how they will stand up to the heat though. Really getting excited about my first brew!!

Looks like you are ready to go...with HB already on tap. I am installing the same type of bulkhead fittings that's why I asked about the O-ring.

Nice manifold...cooler looks large...10 gallon batch on your first run?


The first time I plowed through a new stainless kettle with a unibit, it was a bit unnerving...looks clean there.

Couple more questions...

What will you use for sparge water?

I see your monster kettle sitting on a green stand...did you end up welding together a stand to tier this baby?


The reason I ask, is that I am in process of building a 10 gallon system. Have all the kettles, etc. Just working out the details.

Cheers

Hi Micheal:
Thanks for the comments. 10 gal first batch? Go big or stay at home I say. I have two identicle pots one for boil one for HLT and the stand is not complete yet, I'm actually building of wood, I got my burners from a BBQ manufacturer 170,000 btu babies and a two outlet regulator off Ebay for $6 so I can run one Propane bottle which I already have. I found the small BBQ regulators don't have enough output pressure. If you are interested here is link for stand I am copying sort of. http://www.schoville.com/brewing.php/brewery
