Having a keggle, not ghetto.....having a keggle with the miller sticky still on it and balanced precariously on two pieces of rusty (hopefully) metal.....

My old setup qualified as ghetto, I think.

My new setup, is decidedly less ghetto..which I am thrilled about, but I will always miss the ghetto fabulous brewing process a bit

Hah, now THAT would be ghetto! No, it's a Bayou classic 44qt stainless pot, my old BIAB vessel.

I think that stainless valves, thermometers and sight glasses in kettles or keggles disqualifies a rig as ghetto no matter what the rest of the set-up looks like. Any electric pumps are disqualifies as well, IMO.

Of course, I am not an expert in all things ghetto.

You know what they say, "One man's ghetto is another's dream set up".

Unless the setup has been assembled from found objects.

To me,gheto is run watcha brung. I was just curious about other's set ups in this regard when I started this thread. Just like meatloaf said in "Roady"...everything works if ya let it. Hence my sig.
My fermenter stand is a large,old printer stand next to the computer hutch. It also has plenty of room for all my bits & pieces used for brew/bottling days. All in one place. With room undernieth for BK's,blow off jugs,gallons of PBW/Starsan,etc. With craft boxes of bottles neatly stacked in the corner.
I brew on the stove,but carrying BK's & the like back & forth gettin harder to due these days. Need to make/find a rolling cart the same hieght as the FV stand to rtransport kettles & buckets of water,etc. Maybe a microwave cart or the like? Anyone done that yet?Here's a pic of my brew corner for those that missed it; http://
