Just realized that I talked about mine, without ever posting a pic. Here's Emily, a tempremental gal that I've finally learned to handle. Before her maiden voyage (and before I put the keggles together)...


And midway through her second brewday:


She has a twin brother called Hal, too!

AG refers to All Grain most likely, not Agriculture

Great Rig 5 Thumbs! I am getting ready to start planning mine and would love to get some more detail about how your system works? For example. Have you just incorporated the lids like Mr.Mac? Or are you doing things another way? Thanks for the information. Great build... and beutiful. I keep going back and forth about Stainless or Reg Steel with high heat paint. One is cheaper but the other is just so damn pretty!

AGBrewer, if you're still listening to this thread, I just noticed the CFC. How long is that? 50 ft? I built mine from a thread here in HBT, and it's only 25 ft.

IrregularPulse, even though AG may stand for All Grain, it could be Agriculture too. Given the color scheme, AGBrewer may have intended a dual meaning. aphex732 may be the only person who caught on.

I think in this configuration it still might be under sized.

Those two hose ends (in the red circle) are connected during storage, right?

The boil keggle lid has one quick disconnect fit fitting that leads to a short pipe and elbow fitting to let the sweet wort run down the side of keggle from the mash tun during the sparge (see the picture in our build thread - link in my signature).

The mash tun keggle has two quick disconnects. One for the Blichmann auto-sparge and a second for cleaning/sanitation/liquid transfer purposes.

The smaller keggle (European) lid does not have any quick disconnects attached. We transfer via the ball-lock valve.

Cheers!
