1 BBL (32 gallon) tippy dump mash tun
I started building this thing thinking I'd use it for some club projects or group brews with a couple other brewers but it's just sitting here taking up space.

1.5mm (16gauge) stainless, heavy duty
20" diameter, 24" tall
Welded handles
Tippy dump pivot bosses and tip-locks (with bolts).
16 gauge, full diameter false bottom with silicone edge gasket. Sits on a separate 2" grid stand.
Lid (kinda beat up but functional)
1" NPT silver soldered bottom drain near front edge.
1/2" NPT silver soldered thermometer port 10" up from the bottom on the front side.
3" dial thermometer.

The total volume is 32.5 gallons.
Practical grain bill limit is 75 pounds which would yield 25 finished gallons of 1.082 or 20 gallons of 1.102.

Shipping is going to be expensive due to the size and weight. I just quoted shipping to Chicago at $80 via UPS ground.

And as a bonus, you even get to meet the infamous Bobby himself.

Wish I lived close enough to pick it up...

What's this based off? It seems to be the ideal dimensions for me to get a bigger kettle so I can brew large batches and fill my 16gal fermentors. I don't however have the need for a 75 lb capacity tun.

I actually think it's a bit oversized for a 16 gallon batch no matter what vessel it's used for.

Where did you source that edge gasket for the false bottom? I've been looking for something similar. Good luck with the sale.

This particular one was in the sample pile at the extruder where I get my silicone tubing, but I have used and recommend this stuff from Mcmaster Carr... Hold on to your wallet!!

Looks awesome Bobby!

Just bumping this. I need to get it out of here. Accepting offers. Local pickup preferred but I will consider shipping. Zip codes for quotes.
