Here's my three tier about to be put to use last weekend. I made it from extra shelf unit uprights and a couple pieces of square tube. You can see where I toasted my cooler tun the first time I brewed with it. I installed a piece of sheet metal between the tun and the top burner and fixed that little problem. My back is as happy as my taste buds now.

Here is my brew rig, just got her all put together Saturday and brewed my 1st AG batch on Sunday. I've got a few quirks and kinks to work out of it. Not to mention all the things I'll do different next time. It only took me all day Saturday to find the fittings for the wort in and out for my chiller so that I couls use QD on it.

They drain below the bulkhad but still leave almost 2 gal of water. I checked everything to make sure it was tight and don't perceive any air getting into the line/ joint/ bulkeads.

Any other perceived problems??? Open to suggestions, I would imagine pump will provide suction enough to drain more, but haven't hooked up yet.
My keggles are the same, I actually decided not to install a diptube on the boil kettle because it gives space for the hop trub to settle out after the whirlpool. I know some on here thinks whirlpooling is bs, but it works well for me. I just plan for the dead space when formulating my recipe, it only equates to a couple extra dollars in grain

Maybe make your dip tube come to a 90 degree elbow and suck off the side of your keggle?

This is what I did. my trub loss depends on how much hops I use but when I optested it with just water I only have maybe 1/4 cup left in my BK. I'll post pics when I get home.
