Ha yeah I'm trying to kill it all in one build.. I made it so I can upgrade to a 1 barrel system with some minor work. Just weld new fittings on larger tanks.

Well a 1BBL upgrade for you is only a few more gallons comparatively! Can you fit 50g or 55g tanks on there? Your gas system can handle it for sure, 1/2" flow through on the valves might take awhile though and all the larger pumps have greater than 1/2" inlets so you'll have to rethink your plumbing a bit.

Yeah I designed it so that it not only hold the weight but also 50 gal tanks. the only frame mods would just be adding higher points for the tippy. (tipping a 50 gal tank from the bottom is not the best idea.lol

Glacier Tanks, really nice quality and great customer service. There was a snafu with the front manway design so they upgraded me to a 14" top manway. Had to be super patient though as it took about three months from order to delivery and patience (as you can probably tell in the build thread) is not my strong point!

Had an awesome brewday yesterday, only used half the brewery and the zopinator didn't quite workout but we had a blast and should have a really solid continuously hopped beer with a mix of CTZ, Amarillo, Simcoe and Willamette hops. Chamuco designed the recipe and should turn out awesome!imageuploadedbyhome-brew1388514279.705280.jpgimageuploadedbyhome-brew1388514300.521239.jpgimageuploadedbyhome-brew1388514310.336956.jpg

Is that like a sparge arm in the BK? I've never seen anything like that. Is it necessary for such large volume boils?
