Default my 50 gallon brewrig photos

3 54 gallon kettles, 2 march pumps, a switch panel for the pumps, 2 185000 BTU burners, 1 55000 BTU burner, some scrap steel, and a bunch of DIY...

I ran it for the first time on National Homebrew Day with pretty good success...75% efficiency and 45 gallons of wort.

Wow, thats pretty much all I can say. The rig looks great. Congrats at making something so epic, and please tell me that those are not just March 809s and if so, how long does it take to pump 45 gallons? Also, what was the first brew on the rig.

yup, 809's. About an hour to pump that much. I got them cheap about 15 months ago. should upgrade and use those for my 15 gallon system.

First brew was a 1.057 pale ale with magnum, summit, citra and centennial.

I filled 8 fermentors, kept 3 for myself and gave away 5 to some of my homebrew club members. Each fermentor is going to get a different treatment, be it yeast, dry hopping, etc. Think of it as a homebrew Iron Chef. Then, in July, we'll get together and share 8 "different" beers.

That is awesome!! LOT of beer though...lots of grain...lots of hops...lots of $$$!~ I guess as long as they are tried and true recipes and you have lots of people to share with! Pretty cool to be able to have a group brew and let some of the club members bring home a carboy...especially if they can contribute to the ingredients it takes to make 50 gallons!
