yep. the 2 on the end are 40 gallon heavy duty from a place in vermont that ships maple syrup in them. The middle one came from eBay. A fella in Cinncinnati sells them delivered for like $225 or so. They were used for orange juice concentrate I think. At least it smelled like it when I opened it up.

Default My all electric basement brew porn

Here's my baby after a year of sourcing and building. 2 AG batches down and most of the kinks worked out. First two batches are in the kegs force carbing and taste and look pretty damn good. I've found some great benefits to having the single CFC plumbed for both heating and cooling to be efficient and easy. In order to fil lthe HLT I just open the valves on the cooling lines and fill the HLT from the valve up. It's just as easy to drain that way. I've also been able to cool my wort rather quickly on the house tap water using my rtd temp sensor to monitor the temp. Here's the pics

A shot of the pumps and heat/cool exchanger. The hose connections are also a great way for flushing the copper coil and filling up kettles for cleaning.

As I posted in this thread I felt it only fitting in posting pics of my brew frame, even though it's a work in progress. (Actually it's been more then 10 years in the planning just never got around to finishing it.) My original design was a two teir built out of an old bed frame. The prototype recently went to the land fill as I was cleaning out a bit of my garage (It was also built around a 3x 1/2 barrel keg setup.) The new single teir frame was constructed out of 1x1" square tube and 1.5X2" angle iron.

Early construction:


Adding the first burner:



First brew:


I've since added casters to the bottom legs (Peg style with welded in nuts)
I still need to add the sheet metal wind guard around the burners and add an additional burner.

It's a work in progress so the finished frame will be a bit as I'm now working on my Keezer project.

Edit: Huhmm need a bit more post b4 I can link my images sigh!

Yeah thats not a poor boy setup, thats a mans.

edit: ok so i have looked at tons of your rigs, and I have noticed a distinct lack of bottle holders on the rigs. Where do you put your homebrew while you use both hands? This needs to be mended!
