A Few Updates

It has obviously been a while since I've posted anything on here, so I wanted to put up some updates.  I've done a few upgrades on the system over the last year or so, so here they are:

Most recent picture of the system.
Recently installed manifold.  3-way tri-clover ball valves from Brewer's Hardware.  No more hose changes!  While still manual, it works great in conjunction with the BCS processes I have programmed.
Fermenter lid with thermowell, 1" blowoff tube, and glycol lines for temp control.

View of underneath the lid.  CIP spray ball (removed during fermentation), glycol lines, and thermowell are visible.
A view of the cooling coil.

An active fermentation.
Upgraded mill.  Monster Mill 3-2.0 w/SS rollers and hopper extension.
I have a few more things to do this summer and will hopefully do a better job of keeping this up-to-date.
