My First Build

Postby Hooky » Tue Jun 06, 2017 8:34 pm

Hi Guys,
I've been pottering away in the shed :confusion-confused: building myself a nice little pelican, using a T500 Boiler as the starting point. Took a few shots along the way & have done a cleaning run as well as a sacrificial run. Had to fix a couple of small leaks but she's all sorted now. The liebig is overly long but could be shortened if necessary.
Any & all thoughts much appreciated.

My Starting Point :lol:

Just need to knock up a parrot & a power controller (& get that TPW gone from my fermenters :obscene-drinkingcheers: )

Cheers,
Hooky

Yep, all done JayD, ready to produce some fine Corn Flake Whisky (with maybe some wheat bix &/or malt?) :think:
