Awesome job on the Brutus, did you fabricate the lids? Could I see a look down shot of them, I need to do something for covers and these look good.

Thoughts on the finished product or suggestions to improve it? You must be on crack! Buddy, you have taken Brutus to a new "art" level with this thing. Most excellent job! Stealing pics for my website now...

Nice. I thought you would have had condensate run out of the weep holes on the kegs. That's sweet if you didn't.

If you are referring the "weep holes" near the top of the keg and slightly below the handles, they were welded shut on all three keggles.

I am. I didn't catch that they were welded shut. Thank you.


Edit; I went back and looked at your pics....I see it now.

nbspindel: the answer to your remaining questions are below:
1. how far below the skirt of the keg does the burner sit? did you like it on the test run? 3.5 inches
2. how deep are the shields around the burners, looks like 5" or so. 3.25 inches, they are removable and fit tightly around the banjo burner

Yes, my brew partner's father-in-law fabricated the lids. He's obviously a custom welder by trade.

Below are two pictures the boil keggle lids. The piping and elbow is to let the sweet wort from the sparge trickle down the side of the keggle. Again, they still need polishing, but are made out of 304 stainless steel.

Thanks Lonnie! You gave birth to Brutus, we just took your original design and made slight improvements.

Cheers to beer!
