  • Originally from Denver but moved to Sioux Falls in 2011. Been Brewing since 2008. Started with small extract brewing and now am doing full boil all grain beers. In my free time I am usually brewing and if not, I am out enjoying time with my wife and son. We enjoy the outdoors and I am and avid fisher and hunter. Any sort of adventure is my kind of thing and I'll try almost anything once!

  • I started as a small extract brewer doing mainly recipe kits. I started with a home brew full kit that I bought from Northern Brewer. I then moved up to full boils from the partials I was doing and then that morphed into all grain. My current set up uses two rectangular coleman coolers with a copper tubing manifold for the MT. I am in the process of building a single tier stand with 3 15 gallon pots to move up to 10 gallon batches. I also do wine and have at least 2 fermenters of both beer and wine going at all times in the pipeline plus two kegs.

    Got the casters put on and the underside sanded, primed, and painted. After this picture was
    taken I got the rest of it sanded, primed, and painted as well. All except the top where the
    heat will be. ...

    I want to order the burners today. I'm thinking LP BG-14's for the HLT and the BK. Any other
    suggestions before I do? Will the BG-14 converted to LP be enough to get a good boil on a 10
    gallon batch? ...

    Ya I'll post a better shot tomorrow. Gonna drill and mount the casters so I can stop having to
    lug this thing around. If only I could get a day over 0 degrees I'd be more motivated to get
    something do...

    Did you not state that the stand was built using stainless steel?Paint - especially VHT and the
    like - isn't cheap, requires exotic temperature curing to achieve rated performance (how do you
    cure a 5...

    I am going to do heat shields just haven't got them on there yet. This was a kind of spur of
    the moment build. (Didn't expect someone to say they'd do it for you and deliver just because
    they're bored...

    I'm using 60 quart aluminum. Each square has an ID of 21". The angled pieces measure 16"
    square. The kettles have a 17" bottom. I built the design with the intention that I will one
    day go with 1/2 bb...

    Why? I prefer the look of it painted over bare metal.

    I know there are about a million of these threads on here but I needed some place to track my
    build for my sake as well as ask questions if they arise. I was in the process of designing my
    single tier...

    I keg carb my apfelwein if you wanna call that wine. In fact, I won't drink it any other way. I
    usually put it in a champagne bottle and use cages to make sure there's no bottle bombs or
    rocket corks ...

    Does anyone have the dimensions for this pot? I can't find anything consistent online. I
    believe it's 16" but am not sure.
