Today I am excited because I just ordered a 26 gallons brew kettle, which will be the first item of my new brewery!

They had an incredible "easter egg" 87$ rebate on it, so it cost me about 200$, not bad I guess.. If you want one, hurry up the deal will last until monday I think.

Even though I don't have the required burners, stands, pump and all the rest I will require, this is a first step.. I figure that by being on the lookout for deals like this one I should save quite a lot on the total project cost

Heavy Duty Brew Kettle - With Ball Valve (104 Quart/26 Gallon) | MoreBeer


Happy easter!

Hmm... a little Fermcap-S and you could be doing 20 gallon batches in that. You could meet the legal annual limit (or obligation IMHO) in 10 batches.

Good for you!

Congrats, one piece at a time seems to not hurt the wallet as much besides the deals and sales found along the way. One must not get the War Department bent out of shape on one big purchase. This is how I can only afford my future build, a piece at a time. It's in the hunt that counts, yeah sure I want to brew now. Oh well. One item off your wish list to check check off, keep going.

Great Pots! I just sold a couple of the 15 gallon version. The are truely heavy duty. I have a Brew-Magic stand and it only fits Keggles. I was heart broken when I found out those beautiful pots did not fit.

It sounds like it's time to start cutting some steel and weld up a brew stand
that would handle those 15 gallon kegs. The stand would be the last thing in my mind to worry about getting any kegs, keggles or pots to fit.

Build a system from the start with the amount in gallons you'll want to brew, this including any plans to expand in the future. Better to build it big and grow into it one time than be limited with a undersized brewery from the start that you'll hate and end up replacing anyway. Replacement cost alone is more than a properly sized build the first time. JMO's after being there in the past having undersized brewing systems.

If you really want to take the "fun" out of the egghunt and just get down to business...
Do a search on "EASTEREGG2009"...

They also have the 32q/8gal kettle for $30 off and lots of other stuff.

All too rich for my blood besides the design. I have future plans for my next brewing system, all the kegs collected for this project. It will take 12 kegs to finish with 3 keggles built the way I want them.

Wow, very ambitious choice of kettle! I've got the 15 gallon version of the same kettle, very nice stuff. I like that the bottom coupler has a male exterior, so you don't need a close nipple to attach a ball valve.
