15 years ago age I came back from my Brittish OE with a dream to start my own Whiskey distillery...............after working in north eastern Scotland planting and harvesting malting grain and living in whiskey country I had come home with it in my veins if the Scots sarted doing it hundreds of years ago how hard could it be.

Well when I got home I seeked advice on getting going, I met a old bugger who told me to brew beer "its easy to make and cheap to start out" so I got some gear…

Hi Tim, your system looks really good!  I am doing something similar but all-electric and not so hard-plumbed in. One thing to look out for that has caught a few people out is the positioning of the mashmaster thermometers, if you are doing a small beer or a single batch then there is a danger of the probe being above the mash.
