Cool setup, by the way!

Thanks, I’ve been working hard on this setup all summer. It’s made some pretty good beer so far.

A buddy i work with used that diagram to install the digital controller.

Since the last pictures i posted, I've added a small cartridge style heater that makes it easier to control the temperature. I’ll try to post.

This thing is awesome. I cant wait to see more. I will be scrounging sp? scrap yards for one of these. That is a really cool setup and is a marketable item once you get it all complete. Good luck and keep us posted!

Ebay is your best bet in finding them. Every city has a used restaurant equipment company, work a deal with them. Most of these units are sitting around.

I'm inspired by your posting. I found an older Blickman Touch 'N Brew at a local Used Restaurant Equipment shop, and the guy wants $200 for it. The thing is definitely not in mint working condition, mainly just missing a couple of the little connection lines on the top. I'm don't have welding skills or anything, but I've got some time and definitely want to learn how to fix this thing up if I can to make it work like you did. Do you think it's doable?

I have a chance to pick up a smaller one of these. Twin 3 gallon urns and a 20 gallon water jacket. I'm thinking of mashing/sparging in the urns and boiling in the water jacket. What do you think?

My works realy well for mashing and sparging. I don't think i would try to boil in it...it could make a mass. The one i have is twin 3 gallon tanks. It an handle up to 20# of grain. I used it today as a matter of fact!

If you need help with anyting, email me at Ben.Southard@Compass-usa.com

Man that is a very cool idea and great repurpose. Someone could use that in a apartment. Crap a studio in NY could be all grain with that. Nice work!
I run a twin two vessel system (keggels). But I hate waiting so the gas water heater is cranked with 148deg at the sink, straight into the RIMS heater and into Mash Tun at 165deg all day. Sparge the same way. Saves so much time. EVERYONE TURN UP YOUR WATER HEATERS THE DAY BEFORE YOU BREW!!! The most time is wasted waiting on hot water. The hotter it is going in to your pot the faster you get done.

That's awesome. I worked in coffee shops all through college and this never occurred to me. What a great idea and way to reduce, reuse and recycle!
