I have been slowly designing my ultimate brew rig. I wanted to build a portable system that would allow me to easily transport my rig and have fun at a brew-in. It is almost complete. Hope to upgrade the kettles next year. Cheers!

Next upgrades include bottle opener attached to stand, 3-way valves so I can just turn a valve and direct as needed.

I can't get your link to work:drunk:

I had posted an early photo of this a month or two ago, but this weekend, I visited my buddy in the Pocono's and helped him break in his newly completed DIY brew rig. Everything went great after we ironed out a small leak or two during the test and we brewed 5 gallons of Chocolate Milk Stout. He also made the immersion wort chiller. Here are a couple shots of his completed rig.

Sparge Manifold

Mash is done and we are now boiling

if you put the holes in the top instead of the bottom it'll sparge more uniformly...

I'll mention that to him. It would be pretty easy to just turn it over as all the cpvc pieces are just fitted. Thanks!

the efficiency change will more than likely be negligible
