Nice man,I run a smaller system but I can make as much or more beer than you in the same amount of time. Three 2 vessel keggel setups so we can turn 30 at a time. 9:30 hours yesterday we did 55gal. And it could have been little faster but I was making dinner for 18 people and my buds where running the system. BUT I AM STILL IMPRESSED WITH THE SIZE OF YOUR KETTLES! would love to have two 35 gal setups.

Im sure you can, these will do 31 in one shot so brew twice and 62 gallons later and i wouldnt know what to do with all the beer, haha. And I would buy pizza and call it a day, hope your dinner was good, thanks for the shout.

No room for it, it will take 2 or 3 people to lift, if I work it out right one of those people wont be me.

Friends are more than willing to help shovel out the mash town for a couple beers. This past weekend went through 240 pounds of grain in two batches... no way I am going to shovel all that crap out. Sweet looking rig!

Why Yes it is, it is form Stout Tanks and Kettles, $150.00 for the tube and all the tri-clamps and hose barbs, using a 240V - 4500W heating element running off 110.
