Hey Terry, you could hook your V-II up to something like this while
remodeling.http://www.compasscoffeeroasting.com/pics/eventplumbing.jpgJust finished mounting filter (inc softening) and accumulator to board for a
3 day event this coming weekend. Be much better than flopping around tied to
table legs etc.! Though might not need quite as complex, i.e. the 2 "Ts"
between the filter and accumulator, one basically a water "faucet" to fill
pour over hotwater towers and brewer etc, the other goes to the pitcher
rinser, accumulator output to espresso machine of course. Testing with
Flojet, will be hooked up via foodgrade hose input to filter for event.... 
Working on the plumbing setup test while middle of an 84.6lb 11 batch "quick
roast session". Last batch in the drum now. Only roasted 405lb the previous
7 days:) Just starting a serious new wholesale account push with realistic
goal of hitting a Ton roasted a week in the next 12 months, which will be
about the max possible with this little USRC 3k work horse. Then time to
upgrade roaster (~$50k next size up ouch! But we'll be ready for it)
Oh and just finished dialing our new (to us) catering machine on the
plumbing setup, Bric' just steams too slow for bigger events. And PIA to
tear apart my home setup for events! Last week "stole" a Brasilia Portofino
off Craigslist for $372 inc. my cost for a new pump! Though it's heater only
1200w compared to Bric's 1900w (both 110v) has 6L boiler instead of Bric's
1.5L. So while Bric' takes ~40sec to steam for a 12oz bev (we do one size
milk bevs catering/events) Portofino was 9sec with it's stock tip! Switched
to a slower tip (smaller diameter holes, still 4 hole) for better texture
control now perfect 20sec. Start the shot, start steaming, stop steaming,
stop the shot. That'll keep the line moving mucho better! Last month did
similar event pulling 342 double shots on the Bric' in the 25 hours the bar
open no problem, but waiting 10-15sec to finish steaming after the shot over
and over and over about killed me. Yeah, pulled 19lb of Delirium with the
Bric' in those 25 hours open, crazy!
Bagging to do gone...
