Sure can! This is Morebeer's 2050 w/tippy dump. 26 gallon vessels, no automation, single pump. HLT on the bottom, MT on the top, and kettle right there in front. The heat rising up from the HLT on the bottom keeps the MT temps right where you want it.
Full false bottom in the MT and the kettle. HLT has a sight glass. Brew Thermometer & SS QDs on all vessels. The tippy dump rocks! Put a large trashcan underneath the shoot and dump away. Spent grain removal in .5 seconds
I built a clone of Sabcos chill wizard and can chill 21 gallons from boiling to 70 in 11 minutes all while its being oxygenated and racked into a Blichmann 27 gallon conical.
This was the initial run, so like any other rig there were a few hiccups. But overall the whole day was great and I'll only shave more time off each run after. Pics of the rest of my setup are in my gallery, but here are a few from yesterday's session
Here is the mash recirc. 35 lbs of grain really make a nice filter and the runnings clear right up within 10 minutes
This is right before the hot break. 26 gallon kettle mind you, so Im sitting right at 24 gallons pre boil to compensate for evap losses.
And here is a quarter pound Cascade flavor addition @ 15 minutes
