Awesome!

My electric rig arrived today.   Only had time to unbox it, run some pbw through it & rinse it.   So far, i'm pleased with the build.  Nothing seems cheap yet, except for one cap that is plastic that I think should be metal.  The recirculation pump is super quiet.  It has the "malt pipe" and it came with a hop spider.  At least i think that's what they used to call those stainless mesh cones you put the hops in for the boil.

 

This makes me realize that if i really stick with the hobby, I need to setup a sink in the basement.  It's such a pain to deal with cleaning these things in the kitchen or bathtub.

I think I posted a picture of my brew kitchen. Mine's in a nook off the laundry room. I have a 5 foot hose I can attach to the faucet which makes filling the unit and cleanup super easy.

The one thing I wish I had was a utility sink in the laundry room or garage.

Yeah, what I call my brew kitchen utilizes the laundry room utility sink. :)

A floor drain would be awesome but that's in a different area of the basement.

Aaaaaand it didn’t happen today either. Left work a few hours early last night because my head was pounding and then proceeded to sleep until 3 this afternoon. This night shift is killing me, when I get back to days in a couple weeks I’ll have a lot more time to do things.
