It belongs to another club member. His whole family is big into making homemade wine, and his brother aquired it years ago when a local company was dismantling a factory. It was a distilled water tank in its past life.

Really, we're just lucky that he's willing to lend it to the club for these big brew projects.

and this is 6:06am when I lit the burners to start heating the strike water. 84g strike water, 41g sparge water. The 2 big mamas are 55g on custom Bobby_M stands with 3 burners each. And the kettle in the foreground is 25g that we used to boil up the 2nd runnings (20g of 1050 wort).

How many bottles of gas did you burn through?

Congrats on the epic brew!

We used about 60 lbs of propane.

Found some more pics.

We doughed-in the first 40-50 lbs in buckets until the CPVC manifold was covered
