ISU, hard plumbing is a pain, it can be done but it took a ton of planning and fab work.. And money.lol but some steer away from your dream rig if that is what you want. If sleep on it some more

All,

I wish I had more progress to report. Between moving to a new house and the birth of my first child, I've had little time to brew much less work on the new system. Once I purchase a few more ferrules and SS tubing for the HERMS coil, I will send the kegs and valves out to get welded. The stand still needs polishing and platforms will be fabricated to support the brew vessels. We originally designed this to be a propane setup, so now I plan to install removable sheet metal platforms in place of the burner mounts and support grates we designed. This way the rig could still be converted to propane should I ever decide to do so in the future.

Congrats on the baby- mine is about to turn 1. It's a beautiful thing and time flys.

Can't wait to see the completed stand. Very impressive.

My dad recently went and purchased a MIG welder, TIG welder, and plasma cutter. It looks like we will be able to weld up all of the keggles ourselves in my dad's shop. I expect we will practice on scrap until we're confident enough to tackle the keggles themselves. My brother is a pretty skilled welder already, but I am definitely not. Very soon I will purchase the last few tri clamp ferrules and other fittings needed to complete the fabrication of the kettles.

There's really no rush to complete this project, as I don't have a place to put the rig yet. The house we moved into last May has a completely unfinished basement. We aren't going to start the basement finishing project until 2015 or 2016. Over the next year or so, I will be working on the design for the basement build. Perhaps I will get the keggles completed sooner than that in order to use them with my existing outdoor propane setup.
