Cheese, I have a welder that I we can probably get to put stuff together cheap - he LOVES good beer and the barter system. Let's work on something that we want and get him to make two for us.

Freakin' sweet. I just want a basic cart with enough room for either two pots and an cooler in the middle (with shielding to prevent it from being melted) or three keggles (I might swap my cooler for a keg MLT eventually). I want it to have wheels and I want the burners built in.

Perhaps the middle tier could be raised to protect the MLT from heat. I can figure out the plumbing / gas lines on my own (or with help).

I see the rigid-plumbed inline pumps as a strictly clean-in-place type set-up-I definitely want to be able to remove my tuns for cleaning/whatever. The inevitable movement of the tuns and temp changes scare me about hard lining all the plumbing to the tuns...It doesn't seem like he'd need to be a plumber to come up with this system- the valves are simply placed as tun outlets with a direct-drain in each drop before the pump. After the pump come the flow restricting valves-basic and simple. I would prefer to use hose, and QD's...

BobbyM, the 'logic' type valve system comes only with recirculating systems-I ain't headed there, at least not yet...

As for the uni-strut, it also comes with a green painted coating, but the cadmium coated stuff he used would be more rust resistant-and pricey. A smart employee would buy at cost from the employer saving on mark-up and, most likely, taxes. I may be missing something in his Page pics, but it seems to be only bolts, the obligatory uni-strut 'nuts' (flat stock with threaded holes that will span the gap of the uni-strut), and tabs; 90* and flat, to connect pieces to each other.

For some, cost is not a hindrance-but ability is.

It looks to me like those tuns are connected with fittings that allow for easy removal. The worst thing I see is metal. A bit of insulation on the tuns and piping would be nice, but I'm an efficiency freak...

Yup, saw the unions on the MLT and BK, I just left out 'easily and quickly' in my post. And yet, there is no union on the outlet of the HLT, or between the MLT and BK.

To me, 'quick and easily' is QD's, not large crescent wrench...

Unions are great for a water softener or water heater that you may have to replace every 5-10 years...

Were I plumbing a barrel or multi-barrel system, it would be hard plumbed, the vessels would be firmly anchored and I would be doing C.I.P.

For 5 to 10 gallons, I see KISS, and make it modular.

I see compression fittings on all the tanks. Looks pretty easy to break that down. But I'm an instrument mechanic and it's second nature to me.

Here is my Monster. I am still refining it. There are so many things to add on once you get the main points covered.

NAW, they make sense. Here's a few pics of mine. Just went out to the garage and snapped them with my cell phone. Oh yeah, and the pump isn't connected with hard pipe, there are silicone tubing sections to and from it. I just diddn't want to drop something and snap the head of my pump... I just know my luck and that kind of crap just seems to happen to me. hehehe
