Can you give me the details on the valves and connections? Very interested in building something similar to this.

These links may help:

Bought similar ones at 1 1/2"http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f11/stoc...-valve-216223/
ebay seller link: http://stores.ebay.com/Bitter-End-Tr...Asset-Recovery

Just keep an eye out on ebay for good deals!! I found all the SS nipples and reducer on eBay also!! Reasonable prices!!
I will try to add links to the nipples and reducer when I get a chance. It's a little difficult on the phone to search eBay:-)

I will check for sure but I would guess 50-52" height!! That's if your going to drain your beer into a keg from underneath the conical!! I use a ladder to get up there and fill it! I'm tempted to drill a hole in the wall from the garage to drain it into the conicals in the basement:-)
Happy building!

Great thanks!

Plan is to keg eventually, but for now a racking arm will be installed.

I assume you have a decent idea of what you are doing though, not too many people slapping stuff together cut it on a P66. So, as long as the structure is there, 300 lbs aint that bad
i was thinking the same thing. Couple of half laps would have added a little more rigidity. Lowly modified Jet contractor here.

What are you using for the lids on these? I'm looking at picking up 1 or 2 of these but want to make sure I know what pieces I will need.

Looks great SDB! I bought the Norwesco tank from Tank Depot a few weeks ago and I am finishing up the mount for it. I really like the trub/yeast catcher idea, I'm going to incorporate that into my set up as well. I'll have my 1st batch in it this on Friday! Great work man!
Cheers
