Hey Kal,

Thanks for the kind words. Your system however is one to be measured against!

Yeah I don't have a build thread. One of these days its probably a good idea. I used to build all my own stuff back when I lived in MA. Since moving down to GA 6 years ago I now have 2 small kids. So most of my equipment has been purchased; I wanted to ave the time for more brewing! I have been brewing for 16 years now and I can honestly say that I have mostly everything that makes my brewing life easier now. Life is good!

That's part of the trick! It usually takes a while (and lots of false starts) before you get to the point where you're 100% happy with the setup and can confidently say "I'm done" (go have a beer).

Happy brewing!

Very nice!

Default Just placed the metal order!!

Finally time to build my sculpture. The design is set. Went through all the parts and metal I've been accumulating for this build. Placed the order for the extra metal I will need. Cant wait to dig in and get this thing rolling.

Here is the sketch of my design. I will be posting actual build photos along the way.

Awesome sculpture! Can you give me the details on how you automated your burners? I have been looking at the Asco Redhat electric solenoid valves but I'm not sure exactly how to rig these up with a digital thermostat. Thanks!

Congrats on getting under way with your new build... just a couple of questions about your desing. Will it have wheels? Why not the traditional 3 wide design? What is the top shelf for in the brew setup? What is the middle tank doing in the brew setup? Will you be able to remove the grain from the middle tank if that is in fact the mash tun, after the mash? I am very curious about your design, and the benefits that you have devised for your system.

Great video


My brewing controller (PLC) just died and no spare parts are available from the manufacturer.
I built in enough redundancy so brewing can go on with more manual labor.


Cheers,
