It's a hot water supply from the new hot water tank in the garage.

In the summer it's heated from this magic box of tricks that diverts excess solar power into the tank. On a bright day the tank is up to 85decC before lunch.

So if start brewing late morning i can use the free preheated water then run the brewery off the panels. Should be a 'green' brew.

Im liking the green aspect of the build, its something i want to incorporate into my new build. I just need to get the outside of the building finished (im building a pergola over a decking area), so i can finally get on with the actual brewery

I will be singing after my first brew.

2014 I started this 2nd system!!!

The only brewing I’ve done is extract kits on the stove.

I’ll have to learn AG all over again...

Pumped drain and gravity drain added.

I just tapped into the return pipe from the plate chiller.

Probably the most boring job so far.

Interesting to know I had almost 1L of displacement on the laser etched markings inside due to all the fixtures and fittings.
