Default Looking for Vessels for a 10 gal system build

OK guys. What are my options for mash, lauter and boil vessels? I'm building a 10 gallon system and I'm a little cloudy on where to buy/what to use. Any help in the form of advice or links to places that sell would be greatly appreciated.

Here are some links:

http://www.howtobrew.com/sitemap.html

http://www.kegs.com/index.htmlhttp:/...sion/page1.php

http://www.brewingtechniques.com/lib....4/palmer.html

I am almost done collecting/making stuff for All Grain and found the above pages very useful. I also found that there is no "right way" for anything....it all depends on budget, space, method, etc.

Good luck !

You don't need to know a welder to use Sanke's. Which are either 13.21 US gallons (11Imp or 50 liters) or 15.5 US gallons.

You just have to be able to make the holes for the weldless fittings.
I use a 4.5 inch grinder to cut the holes on top.

Knowing a Welder helps, a machine to use weldless fitness is a plus. You could also try a plasma cutter at a local machine or sheet metal shop. Good one's Vermont get 65.00 an hour, which is litittle bit more then the cost of the materials to do it solo where I live. The plasma cutter dued can usually be bribed with homebrew.

I guess it all depends on one's pricepoint.

VERY good point! you will need to cut the tops out. I know there are other ways BUT... A plasma cutter makes a reaiiy nice hole.

As my current Avatar shows, I nice hole can be made with a grinder with a thin cutting wheel as well. Taks a bit of time but only coast me a few bucks for the disc. And no slag!

IF you live in So Cal you are in luck and you can get stainless pots for free. If you don't live here then you are stuck with either expensive pots or sanke kegs.


These are used pool filters that pool guys take to the scrap yard. I give them beer and they deliver them to my house for free. The ones I use are 30 gallon but they also come in 20 and 40 gallon. The 20's are good for 5 - 15 gallon batches.

If you have a Dremel, this will make short work of cutting out the top. No need to drill holes and the edge is pretty clean so smoothing it out is easier. You probably can Get R Done with 3 to 4 cutting wheels in about 15 minutes.
