Default Design Plans - Thoughts?

I've been trying to figure out the best setup for my enviroment. I'd really like to keep everything together so I can just wheel out to the driveway and start brewing. I plan on using one or two pumps to move liquid around and have only added the higher tier for storage. The length is 6'. The upper tier is 5', the lower being 3'. The width is 2'. The HLT will be up top, the boil kettle on the other side, and the MLT in the middle. I setup an outdoor kitchen when I brew so the Bus Tubs and Hose shown will be in use when the HTL is under flame.

I'd love any feedback or comments.

If it were me, I'd put the storage into another cabinet on rollers I'd make it a single tier set up. You are going to have the pumps anyway.

If you go natural gas instead of propane you won't need to store a propane tank (or two).

don't forget to account for the height of the casters if you're really wheeling it out in the driveway.

Should that "Boil Temp" label be "Mash Temp"? I monitor HLT and mash temps but not the boil kettle.

No, I will be controlling the boil and the HLT. The temp of the HLT will be the Mash temp since it is HERMS.

+1 to that.

Here is my work in progress. I've just recently finished it. I'm working on the control panel currently. Also the grain mill station.

Here is the build link:

I can finally join this club! I'm on the path to building a semi-automated single tier Brutus style system, but had to get the big $$$ out of the way with my kettles, pumps, accessories, fittings and such. For now, I'm just on 2x6's...but the stand will come once I recover financially from everything in this phase, probably in a couple months.

I brewed on it last Sunday and all I can say is...it was awesome.

Default My Brewshed

First time posting and I have to give a lot of credit to this thread. A lot of my ideas and plans came from all the different sculptures on here.

I will eventually get a rolling, single tiered system like a lot of you have, but I simply do not have the room yet. I was lucky enough to have room for a storage shed to put everything in. I used to pull everything out and set it up on chairs but decided just to mount everything inside the shed instead.

Check it out!

Open the doors and....

System contains two March pumps, a RIMS tube, keggle and burner, Rubbermaid mash tun and a separate Rubbermaid cooler for storing sparge water. Everything is controlled by a simple panel mounted on the inside with two PID controllers, one for the RIMS and one to display keggle temp.

Pull out the burner and you're ready to go!

Pumps are more or less permanently attached but the RIMS tube can be removed to drain.

Also features a ~30' counterflow wort chiller and a rack to hang up all my tubing on the door. Cheers!
