Default Rehlbrew 2.0

Well my buddy finally lit a fire under my butt. This week I started construction of the "Rehlbrew 2.0" brew house. It will be a single tier pump drive system with a fires mashtun. Not automation to start out. All manual.

So far we just have all the metal cut and tacked. Next up is to weld it up.

I can't tell. Did you make the burner height adjustable?

Default Rehlbrew 2.0

Yes. Positions at 2,3&4" from top of stand. I have them set at the lowest to measure for the heat shielding.imageuploadedbyhome-brew1427064219.511713.jpg

Very nice. I must have somehow missed that one in your last set of pictures.

Again, great work. Very beefy build. What will be your brewing capacity with this setup?

Starting with Keggles. Eventually will move up to 30 gallon kettles. Heat shields, pumps, switches, CF chiller and paint to come. Eventually I will add some automation. Starting out low-tech.

Very nice. The build looks very beefy like you could easily move up to 30 gallon with no issues.

Can't wait to see your brewing progress.

Cheers.
