Thanks, the tippy dump looks key for cleaning. Anyone have plans on this, either in that Google sketch program, or even just drawn?

Did everyone just glaze over this. I read the plans for this last night. Seems to be an original approach. He claimes to have done a good deal of proof of concept testing (he must also be a PM). I think if this is as effective, or within the 2% eff loss he claims, it may be worth exploring for me when ever I get around to doing my build.

Looks interesting, I too like the simplicity and am looking at this for my upgrade to 10 gallon setup. Any reaction to the way it gradually mixes sparge water with wort, until it achieves equilibrium? Direct fired MT OK? (Even though this is the Brutus "20" I presume it's for 10 gallon batches with kettles sized accordingly.)

That's a really interesting idea. I may try it and see how it works! I have seen pics of 2-vessel breweries and wondered what the process was.

I was deeply interested in the "10" setup when I came across the "20" and am eager to try it. I just need to figure out how to weld now, something I've been wanting to learn anyway. The simplicity of the 20 seems pretty neat, it just looks like several variables have been removed from process. For me that is a good thing.

I too bought the plans and then it comes out in BYO, oh well. The price of stainless has more than trippled in price from what is listed. Also the ASCO vavle he used will work, but was not made for gas. (I called ASCO and thats what they tell me) I still can't figure out how the burners are set up, look closely at the picks in BYO and it shows different burners. Here is an early pic of mine.
