I am curious how this guy is brewing 30 gallons at a time with this setup. Is he maybe not including a larger volume boiler? I can see turning the drums into a MT and a fermentation tank but how is he getting them filled?

Looks like 2 35G fermenters with 1 liner...

Right, so how in the world is he getting 30+ gallons to begin with? Doing a bunch of 5 gallon batches? The post just seems weird to me.

Yeah, it would seem that he may be doing extract... adjusting with water and reporting final volume? I'm confused as to how much he has brewed with the system due to the "never used" items.

Looks like most of his stuff was never used, so he probably hasn't a clue what he's talking about.

I saw this last week. The only way I can see he would be getting 30 gallons is to do 6 5 gallon batches.

His post says "plans changed" and the stuff has never been used. So he might have started buying stuff and went broke or something and never got all the equipment.

I'm ROFL, obviously by "plans changed" he really means "I figured out I can't sell beginner extract/steeping grains and make money"

Maybe you measure out 5 gallons of extract with some hops, heat it up in the turkey fryer, and then pour it into the 35 gallon fermenter and top off?

I got nothing.
