Default My First Brew Rig

After scouring this site for the past few months, I came up with this rig. After buying my first Blichmann burner, then my second, then a plate chiller, water filter, etc., everything was kinda scattered all over the back porch. So I decided to use the parts I all ready had and build a rolling structure to bolt it all down to. I think I am finally finished! (for now)

I am going to give it a trial run this weekend. Thanks to all the threads with pics and diagrams, and the help of some fellow brewers that helped me with some wiring issues.

Wow, that's one hell of a first rig! Well done!

Wow! That's impressive! Have you never brewed, or is this just your first official "rig"?

Chapa....started brewing Nov. of last year, before that my boy's got me a wine kit for fathers day. I did that until I ventured out to another supplier. They had all these grain tubs, kettles, beer on tap in the back room. I went to one of their brew classes and got hooked. Beer brewing is way more challenging than the wine kits and I really enjoy the challenge.

Awesome! Did you weld up that brew stand too? I'm moving to Oklahoma next year. I want to build something like that for all of my beer stuff, but need to wait until after the 4,000 mile move.

That is slick! A hybrid system? No temp control for the hlt and using rims to maintain temp during mash?
