I was gonna say the same thing. I am in awe! I'm trying to brew on a grad student wage so setups like theses are hard to wrap my head around. Today has been a good day as I have witness true beauty.

This is my friend's setup. He works with metal

We previously did this with four mash tuns (kegs) before the big one was finished.

Batch before that was one keg and extract, before that just extract. All excellent batches.

Damn...I should have taken a picture of the cooling setup...most of his brews are lagers. Next time.

Very nice setup there ... got a question though ... what's the filter made of on the end of the transfer pipe in the 5G pictures?

Cheers
