My Ghetto Fab AG System


About $20 worth of plastic shelving from Wally World and a roll of electrical tape=brew stand!

The HLT and MLT are 10 gal Rubbermaids. The MLT uses a plastic false bottom and a mash pad. Works very well. The kettle is a Sabco "DYI" with weldless ball valve and a "Thermosight". The Thermosight is a POS, and is about to be replaced by one of tnlandsailor's sight glasses and a nice 3" faced thermo. It also uses tnlandsailor's Hop Stopper.

The sparger is a Phil's 10". I've got a Chillus Convolutus chiller, but can't get good flow with it. So, I've got a March pump on it's way. :)

Very nice.

Are those burn marks on the shelf under that mashtun? :p

LOL....you know it! Note to those who want to use a cheap plastic brewstand: Don't take your kettle directly off the burner and put it on the cheap plastic brewstand!

Six months ago I thought a system like this was ridiculous overkill... but right now, I could see myself with this setup in a few weeks :p

If you haven't purchased the pump yet? Might I suggest you consider a Wort Wizard it works well using the water flow of the CFC and is available for under $20 if you check around.
