Nice idea fpweeks. I've seen similar pieces made from stainless in some breweries I've toured. The portability was really handy for those guys. I saw one where it had two wheels and then a long handle so the guy just grabbed the handle, tilted it bad and rolled it to anyplace he needed it within his brewery.

Each chiller should have separate cold in (parallel) and the wort from one to the other (series). The first chiller knock the temp down enough for the second to finish.

Here are some shots of my CFC, O2 and Pump set up. I recirculate it back to the BK if I want to whirlpool and then to the Fermentor when I am done whirlpooling. I also use it for CIP for the MT, BK and Fermentor. I still have to hand scrub the trub line out of the fermentor and sometime BK, bit it cleans the pipes and tubing well.

Sorry, my phone couldn't focus very well on the shiny stuff.

I stole the idea from sabco. Check out their website. It's something like $1200 as opposed to my $200......

I like how portable it is, it's perfect for my current hodgepodge brew setup. Down the road it'll get mounted to a brew stand.
