Now if there ever was a reason to need a truck, that is it right there!

What happens when it rains on brew day in Bloomfield...



my all grain setup... yes that is a water bowl heater... no it does not heat my mash tun sorry, but it is the right height and strong enough, and the home tanned deer hide is my insulation blanket for my hot liquer tank


my first pint off my homemade kegerator... an old mini fridge that had its guts removed and put into this box.



** edit**
Apparently i have not got the hang of posting pictures

My ghetto brew-rig, featuring the 15 dollar harbor freight folding workbench and milk crate.





Took a dowel that fit in one of the holes and nailed some metal flashing on it. The magnets on the thermometer hold it in perfect position. Not only is it Ghetto, but it's ugly-junk as well!

The turkey pot is HLT but I often have to use the 60qt for strike on 10 gallon batches. The quart pan is for pumping hot liquor until it's easy enough to lift the whole pot, vorloufing, pulling decoctions, boiling priming sugar and even gelatin. I use another 20 qt pot for decotions and cereal mashing (I like to do that on a electric stove top.) Since it's on the porch I can whirlpool and siphon to the fermenter down on the sidewalk.

You really aren't that ghetto when you are adding keggles and pumps imo. I put my turkey fryer on my stove and did a batch right in my kitchen. That's ghetto.

This is the cooler that I got for free at a garage sale. I fiberglassed and sealed the crack and made my MLT out of it.

Tunzilla:


I borrowed this coffee pot from work. It heats 4.5 gallons of water to 177 degrees in about 15 minutes.


This is Tunzilla feeding my $54 10 gallon alluminum pot.


I did buy a decent propane jet burner for about 50 bucks to boil my wort

I don't have a picture of it, but I cool my wort in an ice bath in an old wash tub.

Overall my setup is about as ghetto as you can get.
