Default Tell me about your brew rig

Am about to invest in a brew rig, probably 15-2500 bux, and am doing my due diligence on the internet. Won't be building as I'm too busy/old and would rather spend my time brewing. Flexibility is important, as I like to experiment with different brews. I would appreciate input from those of you who purchased their rigs relatively complete. I prefer 5 gallon batches, but 10 isn't out of the question. 5 gallons because I like to brew often. I've been brewing AG for almost 2 years and have a eclectic collection of gear. Will probably buy all new. Hope you can help me out.

Pat

I built my rig but I have a little input. You can buy a 1 bbl 4 vessel system from stout tanks in Portland for $3100. I'm sure you could get a half bbl system for $2500 or less. That includes a conical. If I had the cash (and could convince the wife) I'd buy one.

I welded my own, but from what I've seen brewsteel does fine work.

That's what I'm sound also. Just cut the bed frames . Now I'm drilling the holes for bolts. Got frames free n kegs free n my dad works for propane co. So I get free propane n will get all hoses n regulators free. N free chiller
