Sparge Water Kettle, Mash Tun Kettle, and Boil Kettle. All Stainless Steel Kettles with Brass Valves and internal Plumbing.

That system for $500. Keep in mind I might be inept at welding and other activities to build my own tower. It looks like there is only one burner, would I need to purchase two more? I always thought each tier needed its own burner. Shoot, that even if the burner is included. Let me know your thoughts.

I would not do it. I have a buddy that spent half that and had one made of iron. w/3 burners. Doesn't have internal plumbing but that's not a big deal. just get some hose. Id say keep looking around.

Looks like you are paying $500 for three kegs and one cheap burner. Is the ghetto table part of the deal as well?

Seems a bit on the high side.

Your location says Ohio, but I see that ad here in San Diego alllll the time. It is a bad deal, but more to the point, who is selling these things in Ohio and in San Diego.

Carne,

haha I changed my location before this post just in case it actually was a good deal(I am in San Diego). A few months back I had posted a congratulations to myself for finding two keggles for $25 each. I was set to pick them up 6 hours later. The guy said he was flooded with calls after I had talked to him. He sold the keggles to different people for $60 each before I even got off work. Definitely think some HBT members took a search around san diego craigslist after my post.

I have RSS feeds that text me when beer related stuff hits CL here. I am sometimes the winner of such stuff.
