I have yet to make my first batch, but I am gathering supplies.
I have made a 304 16 g stainless steel boiler, should be about 11 gallons if I did my math right. Eventualy I will need to make a new one as the inside has a mig weld in it which could be difficult to clean.
I am currently shopping for a burner which can get this monster boiling. No stove top or 5th burner that I have found can get it going. My local Gijoes has several burners which may work, I have not checked all of them but I am looking at around 50k btu on lp. Is that enough horse power to get this thing going?
I can and will make my own wort chiller. Everything else I will end up buying.
Anywho dinner calls, I just want to say hi and expect questions from me.
If my boiler works out, I might be willing to make and sell a few to others. fyi.
