i got my ghetto all grain system almost ready for her spring maiden voyage!

here's to good homemade beer guys
i hear ya guy's, i hear ya. my hood system has made two treks and works pretty good. but can be better and more efficient. there's nothing wrong with it at all. it would just be nice to have the system gravity fed, a burner under each kettle for better temp control, etc. to each his own right? as t1 said, "here's to good homemade beer guys!"
if i could figure out how to post a pic, i would post a pic of the systems????

I don't remember the amounts, but the lumber to build mine wasn't exactly free. $300 seems reasonable for a quality welded stand with integrated burners and all that.

I like mine because it's put together with carriage bolts and I can disassemble it into a relatively compact pile of wood to move around if I want to. Something to think about.

yea, they are nice sculptures. all square tubing, has wheels on the back legs, and intergrated handles on the front to wheel it around. not too tall and bulky.

how did you post your pic's of the false bottom?

Unfortunately, you have to upload them elsewhere and post links here using the little image button...

You can use http://imageshack.us/ to host the images for you. It's free and I don't think you even have to register...

Somebody posted this link a while back...there are a bunch of good examples of AG setups with pictures and explainations....
http://brewery.mvlan.net/folder/011/...s%20Directory/

One of my favorites is this one...detailed explaination of how to get your AG on. I only wish there were blueprints of the actual stand.
http://xb-70.com/beer/3_tier/

Anyone have a link to pictures of a nice wood setup? I just want ideas on particulars, like burner placement and support. I have some ideas....
