By the way, SWMBO, though excited to see such a contraption, will not allow it to stay in the house....

That looks killer. I need one of those. I just bought my Ag stuff today and now I have more equipment than skill

Hey guys... thanks, it really will be a dream of a system. I prefer the coolers for a few reasons... Less gas used to keep the water and mash heated (nearly zero temp loss) and along with that, more time to do what I need to do since I dont have to ALWAYS be watching the temps. Set them and forget them.
All together I have about $290 in the system, including the rack and the wheels, thermometers, all of it... This will be a fly sparge system, so that also includes false bottom and sparge arm.

As for my wife having sisters... well, no such luck, but I will take that as a compliment! How I ended up with her, I will never really know...

Thanks and ask any questions you may have!

Pol

Nice setup there Pol. Simple and functional. I like it.

I think the only thing I would change is moving the top shelf down a bit. It would make access to the HLT a little easier. Carrying any container of scalding water up a ladder or lifting it over your head sucks. That's one reason why I built my 3-tier w/ 3 burners.

Nice setup! I would recommend buying a pump to pump the hot water from the BK to your top tier. A $120 pump is much cheaper than spending several weeks in a burn unit with scald injuries to your head and torso.
