So here's the story, my friend cannot brew at his apartment and wants to invest in a system, specifically, my system the goal is to begin brewing weekly. Yes, I did warn him that to do this we will need adequate space to ferment and serve and all the delicious beer we will be brewing (which means there will be fermentation and kegerator builds to post soon too).
I already have a 3 tier sculpture, two keggles, thermocoupler (which will be mounted this weekend hopefully)
Low temp mag drive pump, 25' copper 3/8" IC, one randal temperature controller and one full size whirlpool side by side fridge. The fridge will eventually have the middle wall cut out and hopefully house four sanke fermenters.
The infinite threads on DIY projects has helped me tremendously so hopefully I can meld all the wonderful ideas together and this might help some else out someday.
It has been a slow build so far but it should be a quick improvement with the new found friend involved. I would appreciate some critiques on my ideas and if you have any improvements i would really appreaciate the help
So heres my idea for the brew setup (sorry for not cropping)
I plan to buy the coleman 70 qt cooler for a mash tun (only $40 at walmart) and install a sparge system as well as a straining system. Currently, I use a bazooka screen and it works well.. with a little tip.. but I think Im gonna duplicate the building of my sparge system and use it as a drainage device (shown below).
