MaxOut Brewers Cart
In an effort to streamline my processes and equipment I created what I call the MaxOut Brewers Cart. It started with wanting an-line oxygen infuser and grew from their. I built an In-Line Oxygen/CO2 infusion device here-
I tried this on my last brew and the yeast really took off running. I also plan to use it with CO2 for carbonating in the brite tank. I've been trying to organize some of my other brewing gadgets and ultimately evolved into the MaxOut Brewers Cart. I have all my hardware for brewing getting scattered around and decided to consolidate it on a handy cart. It consists of a Chugger pump, 4" X 18" stainless filter, Infusion device with 6" X 2 micron stainless stone, 1.5" X 6" sight glass, 20 LB CO2 tank with dual regulator, M60 Oxygen tank with dual gage regulator and flow meter, three way valve and hand truck.

It took a long time to figure out the plumbing and how to get the most of of the configuration with as few hoses and changes as possible. I put together a few small hoses with camlock connectors and used camlocks on the valves to the Chugger pump to keep the cart compact.
Here is a few shots of the MaxOut Brewers Cart
Plate chiller on wing nut mount made out of a strap of stainless. Chugger mounted on custom made stainless mount. (still need a splash shield for the pump)
Plumbing with three way valve on top, Infusion stone has air quick disconnect on bottom, filter to right, and sight glass in the middle. All the plumbing is mounted with two U-bolts wrapped with silicone tubing and held to cart with wing nuts.
