None of these are ghetto! I'm going to have to take pictures of my setup next brewday. It pretty much consists of a 4 quart stockpot which I mash in, colander, pour the grain in a mixing bowl, sparge, colander, partial boil in the same stock pot. I am adding a 2 gallon mash tun this weekend (1 gallon brewer).

Plus I use a 5 liter vinegar jug fermenter with a balloon airlock. Anyone can top me?

You got me at ballon airlock.

I think it would be easier to list the actual brewing equipment, rather the other random objects I use for brewing.

3 piece airlocks 9
Variously sized drilled stoppers 12
Dried yeast, two types
Hydrometers 2, one normal brewing hydrometer and one distillers hydrometer I ordered by mistake.
6.5 gallon bottling bucket 1, just barely got this.
Refractometer 1, just got this too.
Pectin enzyme 2oz
Bentonite 1lb

I have lots of other things that get drafted when I brew, but nothing else that's actually made for it.

Oh yeah, I got no rubber stopper, a drilled out wine cork.

A large electric motor on a grain mill isn't exactly ghetto. but not bad.

Ya. I got most everything for free and built everything myself;The electric motor came out of an old phone building in Buffalo. The fan is just a computer fan that cools it. The HLT is out of of a public school that got demolished(SS pot to make mashed potato's for 600 kids). I am proud of it.

Yeah,I noticed the shape of the pot right away,& wondered where it came from. Good job of re-purposing. I try to always remember what roady said "everything works if ya let it". You seem to be taking that to heart by the pics!
