Default Sabco Brew-Magic Kettle Dimensions

I have three kegs and I'm in the process of building my brew rig. My goal has always been to match the design of my kettles to the Sabco Brew-Magic MLT, HLT, and BK and match the exact locations of the fittings that Sabco has installed. I'd buy the system, if I only had thousands of dollars. I realize there are many other funcional builds out there, but I'd like to match Sabco kettles, specifically.

I'm hoping there is a Brew-Magic owner out there that would be willing to take some pictures and some measurements to the location of the fittings for each of their kettles. If I counted correct, it would only be a total of 9 pictures with 9 dimensions, three for each kettle. I'm sure there are many DIYers that would like to have this information, as well, in order to build there own economy rig after this great system. I realize it would take some of your time, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance Brew-Magic owners.

Brew-Magic owners, if dimensions were too much to ask for, then just pictures would help. Any help would really mean a lot.

Must not be any Sabco Brew-Magic owners on this forum. I could have sworn there were a few.

I don't own the Sabco system myself, but I'm curious why you want to duplicate the positions of the fittings.

Have you tried calling Sabco? If the case is that you want the dimensions to put Sabco parts in a keggle, trust me buying their kegs with parts welded in is the way to go. Keep in mind, they have a few different levels of their system. My dad bought their "Economy" package when he moved on from stove top brewing. The kegs are definitely top notch. But compared to the cost of putting my keggles together on my own, it seems like a no brainer to DIY.

I wasn't sure calling Sabco would get me anywhere. In otherwords I thought they wouldn't want to share the information, but maybe I should give it a try. I'm aware they have different levels of product, but to be honest I can't afford any of there levels. I already have kegs and would like to DIY the project, just want to match my setup the best I can to their setup. Are you able to get any pictures of your dads kegs? Thanks, alot.

Hey, Wayne. I like the way the Brew-Magic is setup and I also figure that they have done substantial research and planning and have proven that their locations work or why would professional brewers continue to buy this system for their pilor breweries. I guess in the end I'm hoping to DIY a project that mimics this system and figured a Brew-Magic owner would be able to guide me a little that's all. Do you have any suggestions as to where to locate things on kegs? Thanks.

My last post was a little ambiguous, sorry. I meant that it is cheaper to DIY keggle based on YOUR application.

I wouldn't worry about exact dimensions, just mark out your fittings where it will be most accessible to you.

I think I'm heading over there this weekend, I'll try to snap some then.

I am not trying to rain on your parade but there are hundreds of members here who have built successfully built keggles without ever looking at a Sabco Brew Magic. All it takes is a little thought and enginuity. There are many threads on the forum on building keggles. Have you done a search of the forum and read these threads?

There are a number of pictures of Sabco brew magic systems. If you want to duplicate them bad enough you can figure out the demsions by proportion. Print out a picture of a brew magic, you can easily find out the dimensions on a standard keg and proportionally work out the dimensions on the Sabco.

Thanks, Maltose. The only way I'll afford to have a brew rig like this is DIY. Let me know what you find out this weekend.
