The brutus was awesome for the "authentic" brewing style of having multiple kettles but in reality we are trying to get sugar from grain and then boil it. Let's be honest, brewing isn't that hard it's impressing the neighbors that is. lol. I like to brew, clean and then relax in the easiest manner I can. Cleaning one pot and two hoses seems really awesome at this point. I run a business, am newly married and have plenty of other projects that I like to spend time on too so brewing is a lot of fun but I don't like spending all day doing it and then cleaning it all up. I tested the BIAB method on my stove with a couple 1 gallon batches and was sold immediately. I can't wait to test the new stand out. Now I have enough room for a fermentation chamber or maybe 2 or 3 stands in the future for multiple batches at once. Nothing says happy like 30 gallons of three different beers in 4 hours. I can have 3 of these for the price of one brutus and just about the same amount of space. I should have new pics up soon of everything completed, plumbed and fired up. I'll test the tipping with this design too. I don't think it'll be a problem.
Nice concept . . Grate work
I might have to look into something like it . . when i get around to building a brew stand still working from the back porch no room for a full stand but make do and make beer
