I gave a worker some of my homebrew and he loved it so much he gave me 2, ½ barrels he got when they closed down a store.
After my first AG this weekend, I know I need a bigger brew pot, my 30qt. had all it could handle.
For my brew pot I plan on cutting a 12in. hole in the top, weld a nipple for a 1/2 “ valve. Do I need a t-stat or sight glass on the brew pot?
The other barrel I plan on heating my Mash & Lautering water in.
I plan on welding a ½” nipple for a drain valve, one for a t-stat and one for a sight glass.
I’m going to find a lid and cut my hole to the size of the lid to help keep the heat in.
I have a 65,000 btu burner and am going to see if it will handle this load.
Any other Ideas.
I just built an Igloo 10 gal. MLT. it worked real well so for the time I plan on keeping it.
Any other ideas?
