I've been brewing with my boil keggle so long with these other 2 lonely, so I decided to start on my rig finally...




This will be a KISS single tier with a single pump, all manual control.
In my opinion, a fully automated system would be a blast to build but once finished, it takes the fun out of brewing.
I plan to recirculate the mash, and also recirculate during chilling with the Shirron. I'm also converting to natural gas at this time and have the 5.5" NG 10 tip burners.






The entire gas manifold was TIG welded. The remaining rig is MIG welded...











There is a nut welded inside for the casters...

You could literally park a semi on top of that frame.

Nice.

Looking DAMN good my friend... I like the "blocky" look with all the short pieces. I'm sure that will stand up to the task!

Keeps those pics coming...

Thanks.
Yeah, I could/should have gone with 16th inch but I went with 8th instead. No big deal. I'm not scared... At least I know that it WILL hold.

I think I'm going to powder coat it Chevy orange.

Why kill when you can OVERKILL!

Nice beefy stand you have there. Looking forward to the rest of the build.

Looking good. It was your videos that took the mystique out of AG for me.

It's good for when you want to melt down 45 gallons worth of lead to make your own ingot and SCUBA weights.

Thanks. Glad I could give something back to the brewing community.
