What is the screen made of? No way hardware stores in my area carry stainless steel screen.

Interesting. Looks like its going to be very compact, and wood.
Will you be able to sit on it when done? Or at least a cup holder for a pint wile you brew.

Like the build so far though.

are you worried about not being able to clean that copper ring out? When you first start circulating, grain particles will be flowing through the pump, rims tube, and that copper sprinkler thing. Seems like the particles might get stuck in there and you won't be able to get them out.

Let me just see if I have the logistics down...

MLT: Electric turkey fryer being heated by a 1650-1800W heating element underneath the false bottom?

HLT is not apparent yet, but I would assume more electric from your wood stand OR that you will go no sparge.

BK is also not apparent yet, but same with the electric...

2 tier stand with a single pump or perhaps a single tier for a brutus 20 style.

Are you worried about the dead space underneath the false bottom? That is probably about 20% of your mash volume by the looks of it. I also wonder why the sparge ring for the mash recirculation. It also seems like you are taking the coldest water in the pot (the bottom) and placing it away from the element by recirculating.

Maybe I am just really confused.

Good question walker. When i use the turkey fryer i ALWAYS use a great big straining bag. So, my mashtun basicall has the element in the bottom, the screen is just added protection to keep the bag and grain from direct contact with the heating element. Having both the screen and bag does a pretty good job of keeping MOST of the paticulates out of the piping. I plan to "flush" the system with boiling water after recircing.
