Picked up some 22 oz bottles the other day
Each 1bb batch takes 15 cases!!!
We will bottle what is in the big conical and brew a batch with the new rig this week.

I also picked up some materials to do the other wall with FRP
Still thinking about how to drill the holes in the Pex tub for the new MT

I would just drill 1/8" holes about an inch apart around the whole loop on the bottom of it. What are U gonna use to empty the mash? I use a shop vac and it works great.

Keiths
We had figured we hand to shovel it out. The the shop vac is a great idea. I will give it a try on our next mash.
Thanks for your comments

Hmmm... shop vac. I will also have to give that a whirl on my big setup as well.

Today is my first brew day with the new setup. I've collected about 30 gallons of wort so far and have just brought the kettle to a boil. I could only mash in 50 lbs of grain into my 20 gal boilermaker, so I'm going to have to supplement a bit with dry extract to get up to a respectable O.G. My final runnings are just about at the point where I need to stop the sparge and top off the kettle with water. I'm making an Amarillo Pale Ale in case anybody was wondering. My dad will be posting some pictures he took at noon later today.

Ok this is test day.
We are brewing a batch using the new kettle
You can see the HLT which we filled with sparge water using the 55 gallon new kettle. In this picture Jumbo82 is sparging using the pump to go from the HLT to the MT

Using a bucket to fill the brew kettle. We will use a pump in the future. We just have not figured out the best way to go about it. But as this is a day to test the Brew Kettle hand filling is ok
