Default Getting a table top tilting Kettle for free.

I am getting on of these for free through work. We ordered a new one and the old one still works. So I called dibs. Anyone know if home gas pressure will be enough to run this bad boy or would I need commercial gas pressure?

First, congratulations! Second it looks like it might work but residential pressure is definitely on the low end of the specs.
My assessment above is based on the spec sheet (bottom of page 2) http://www.globeequipment.com/librar...and_KGT12T.pdf the kettle requires 3/4" piping with a minimum pressure of 4.5" W.C. (water column) and per wiki answers (http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_re...l_gas_pressure) the residential gas pressure is 5-7" W.C.

I've got 7.5 W.C. in my house. I think you'll be fine if you can get that 3/4" requirement out to your brew location.

That thing is pretty awesome, you were extremely lucky to get your hands on it, especially for free! Make sure you post up some pics and let us know how it works once you get it all set up.

well I am getting it tomorrow. Hopefully, after I check around a bit I can see how much it will be to have the line installed for it. If the line is too expensive I will end up taking this to the scrap yard and getting in the range of 200$-$300 for it. Then I just buy a larger kettle and a new burner. But I would love to have this hooked up and running by the late fall.

No way would I scrap it out, sell it as the money made will buy you a complete brewery, think before you jump! Hell I would buy it if it weren't for the unknown shipping bill from the full right coast to full left coast.
I would ask around for a friend to pipe it in for you, contractor labor alone would be way over the top not counting materials. hell I have power threaders i'd do it if you were closer.

You should have no problem getting it tied into your home gas piping and should have more than enough supply volume/pressure to run it. Any idea on where you'll be setting it up? Can you trace out your gas piping from the meter throughout the basment? Take a look for 1" or 3/4" piping and see where you have valves, unions, capped tees, ect. At worst case you should have a dirt leg at each piece of equipment that should consist of a valve, tee, stub of pipe below the tee and a cap on the stub. you could remove the cap, add another tee & valve to your kettle, then another stub below the tee and cap to recreate the dirt leg.



All else fails on my next trip to Buffalo we could discuss options over a few samples.

Or I'll trade you my 6 gallon electric one....
