This is another overall shot that shows the basement window with a fan. I have a window that opens inwards and up. i have a sheet of alluminum protecting it as a moisture barrier. can't tell you yet how good it works as this is my first real test.
Here is an over all pic of the setup. I didn't say it was nice to look at. The silver case is angled as it is cuz the thermocouple (temp sensor) that came with my PID is only 3 feet. i have a longer one on order. I welded the stainless fittings. Not pretty. I used a MIG setup with shielding gas. The gravity nature of stainless welding with that setup is difficult to do on a round threaded pipe to a keg. It takes some practice but even then my welds are not pretty ...but water tight.
this picture shows the end of the sink and the shower valve. I wanted hot and cold water on site, sort of speak. I didn't want just a faucet. I wanted a long hose with a spray gun on the end. THe showervalve with a washing machine hose (hi temp) and a garden sprayer (with trigger) does the trick. Its also plumbed for a drain.
This photo shows the electric kettle with CFC (40+fooot) below. The silver case is the control panel. I made everything portalble or plug n play. I can take the case off and work on it in the garage. its setup to run a mash and HLT but i am not ready for that yet. Of course i would have to purchase another PID etc. The PID i am using is off of Ebay. Works fine. with SSR. its holding 150 veryy nicely (floats to 152 down to 148 in Auto Tune mode).
I am brewing for the first time with the electric kettle. I am steeping grains as i type this. The water heated from 54 F to 150F in 20minutes on the nose. I am using a 220V 4500W heater.
