Default My Set Up - Branded Brewing Co.

Now that I am in deep in this hobby, I thought I might finally share my entire set up.
My new website, which I plan to keep record of each brew with recipes, etc. (work in progress)
www.brandedbrewingco.com
My Logo

My alternate Logo



PDF Packet of all the info

Parts List

My brew cart – I designed the cart with panels on, for aesthetic purposes only. On group brew days, I think this will look quite professional (much more than I am). I also have a table cover that has my logo imprinted on the skirt coming to complete it. I am sure many of you may wonder about the heat being trapped. The panels do get a little warm, but not warm enough to really burn yourself on. The cart is still new, and I am getting everything dialed in yet. Once I do that, I plan to make some new panels with some vents at the top and go with a little thicker material.

The designs (better drawing in packet) Working at inserting the dimensions on the drawing.

Looking into the MLT. Sparge is built into the lid.

Fired up

In use – You may notice I have some extra “risers” under the kettles. Still dialing in the system, and will do away with these, this was just so I could see the flame more easily.

Thank you for everyone that posts on here.

If you turned your pump heads 180 degrees so the outlet faces up, it may alleviate any priming issues. Air bubbles can rise easier this way.

I actually didn't even use the valves on the first brew on the system. I didn't have any issues, but I put the valves into my design at last minute. Due to how close I have the mounts, I can't spin the heads. That would be one thing I would change if I revised the build.

I didn't even notice the pump orientation. But he is right, you're supposed to have the outlets on the top, or to the right. I guess if you start noticing priming issues, or cavitation, you may want to turn the heads around.

Very nice rig!! The real problem with your pump orientation is that when you open the purge valves, you are going to spew wort, and not air. The output should be on top so that when you open the valves, and the pump is off, it can flood the chamber from the bottom, and push the bubbles out the top. I'm sure you'll get it dialed in. Very pro photos!
