Default Single tier scultpure pictures, please!

I would like to build a singel tier sculpture for my set up and use my pump instead of gravity. Can any of you show me pictures of set ups you've built? I'm going to go with a double-burner system with a cooler in the middle

Thanks for the help.

Hey Cheesefood. I'm not sure who gave me this link, but there are quite a few single tier sculptures. I'm aslo getting ready to build my single tier sculpture. There are some pretty sweet ones, and some more economical ones too.

Brewhalla


Keep up posted on your sculpture, I'd like to see what you come up with.

Here is a single tier that looks like it was made without welding. A Brutus Ten type clone.

That looks really nice. I wonder how much that unistrut costs compared to welding steel tubing together?

Probably about 10x the cost. Unistrut is not cheap at all and neither are the fittings.

Here's some DIY single tiers I saw on morebeer's forum. I'm also thinking about going this route before too long.

I thought this was a unique idea.

I see 8 ball valves. Those are about $10-$12 each. Probably close to $200 in plumbing alone. 2 pumps ($100+ each) . So let's say that his comes in close to a grand.

Cheese... He's asking about the stand structure itself. That erector set looking stuff is called Unistrut. It's main usage is supporting pipes and conduit in industrial settings. They have all kinds of shapes like angles, U, and boxed sections. Then they sell all kind of connectors like angles, crosses, tees, etc along with the bolts to hold it all together. It's inevitable that anyone that makes hobby type things with Unistrut, you'll find that they work in some industry that uses it a lot and some of it walks off the job. No one in their right mind would buy it at retail price for this kind of project.

And you're right.. hard plumbing is crazy and expensive. I'd at least have a short section of hi temp hose as a stress relief connecting each vessel to the bird's nest manifold. You need a frickin degree in boolean logic to set all the valves per function.

Got it, thanks. I figure he's a plumber or something. Just look at how well thought out his hard-plumbing is: he knew to put cleanouts (flush-outs?) in various places.
