Here's my brew rig. The propane tank on the rig is only temporary. The next picture is the permanent tank once I run the gas line to the brew house.

A little off topic... but I am currently building one of these and I see that some of you have those canister water filters plummed into the system. Are you using those to filter the beer and if so what type of filter system are you using? I am interested in this so I can complete the wort circuit prelim drawings for my brew sculpture.
Thanks,
Chuck

It's used to filter the water to make your beer not the beer itself.

Aww, that is what I was wondering. I am trying to decide if I need to add a filter into the wort system or not...

The only filter I know of on the Wort side would be called a Dry Hopper. Basically your filtering your wort through a canister of leaf hops. Only problem with using a water filter for that is the quantity of hops to fill the sucker at $3 /Oz from the LHBS would be insane. But what do I know I'm still working on my brew rig. It's been in my head for 10+ years now and only just starting to put it together.

Actually your thinking of a hopback.

You could probably use a very coarse filter for wort if you wanted to, but I've never heard of anyone doing that, at least with a filter cartridge. It would probably clog with hop mater/break material pretty quickly. Most would use a bazooka screen, hop taco, etc. inside the kettle.

My new rig. I took it for its maiden voyage this past Sunday. There's some things that still need to be tweaked, but I'm pretty happy with it.

Sure beats the manual setup I had before. Pumps Rule!
