That looks very well done.
Good job.
I remember when you first started this build, its good to see it finished (looks like your work rate os a bit faster than mine).

thanx guys for your warm words of encouragement. got some vinegar set aside and a tpw going ready for a cleaning run. i haven't brewed for a couple of years. there's something comforting about the smell of fermentation and the quiet gurgling of an airlock.........
