Compact shop vac
After everything has been cleaned when the brew day is done, some of the parts will remain wet inside even when exposed to air. This is especially true of the pumps, chiller, and HERMS coil.
We use a Ridgid WD4522 compact shop vac in blower mode to evacuate standing water from the various parts after cleaning. This model has been replaced by the Ridgid 50318 (shown in picture). Different colour, similar functionality.
The shop vac is small enough to fit neatly under our brew stand.
