I figured it was about time I started a build thread. I'll be keeping this going with pics of the progress I make with the new 20 gallon AG setup. So far things are going well. I've got quite a bit accomplished... and its taken a while, but I'm surely on my way!
My plan is a 4 vessel setup. My HLT is made from a Sanke keg and is elevated. Underneath that, within the frame, will sit a smaller vessel, heated electrically that will contain the HERMS coil. Then two 100 quart stainless pots. One for the MT which contains a stainless mesh false bottom, and the other a boil kettle. I've also got all stainless 3pc valves, and 25 feet of brewers/vinters hose. System will consists of 1 pump, a therminator chiller, and propane burners (yet to be sized). I plan on plumbing my gas lines at some point.
The frame is built from 2x2 mild steel tube. I have casters on order the the feet of this rig as its going to weigh quite a bit.
Some welds... I'm a novice TIG welder at best...
