    Insulating the chimney does help. Made one myself, check out the pot skirt link in my sig. Here
    is where I got some of the info...

    My homemade copper CFC is 20' of 3/8" inner pipe. Your CFC is 12' of 1/2" pipe. SS or copper at
    almost twice the length and smaller ID pipe cools more.

    I've got a used 10 gallon cooler/mash tun to get you started. I think I still have the bazooka
    screen and fitting, its seen better days but it would work. Sorry no ball valve. PM me if your

    I would do two things before upgrading to a bigger burner or high pressure regulator. Mount a
    circular wind screen around the burner, to keep the heat focused at the bottom of the pot.With

    Its been a while since I posted keep that in mind in case I repeat what I have already posted.
    The distance between my burner and keggle is around 2 3/8". The closest I can get my burners to

    Nice find, very interesting, I'm sure that works ok if your brewing indoors with no wind. Some
    cheap aluminum flashing wrapped around the pot with and air gap would channel the hot gasses

    That stand looks much better, good job. I agree with day_trippr that you have to raise up the
    pot for more air flow, 3/8" works for me. Installing SS nuts under those diamond plate pieces
    will probabl...

    Not sure where I bought it or what gauge it is but it was the only one they had. I got a lot of
    beer out of that aluminum before it started to crumble but have since gone to SS.

    I am glad to see others using this, great job. This really saves on propane and the time it
    takes to boil. My first one was made from flashing also. It lasted quite a few brews but
    eventually the alum...

    My experience with weldless fittings is that they leaked on my cooler MLT or they twisted too
    easily on keggles. After attempts at fixing this I ended up having a few fittings welded. They
    no longer l...

I saw your post on the wood tap handles you've created. Are you selling these? If so, I'd be very interested in buying one. They are beautiful! and I am looking for a wedding gift for my sister and think one of these would be perfect! Please let me know!
