OK so im getting together a parts list and pricing for outfitting my kegs. This will be a single tier build, herms build. Right now im just working on the fittings for the kegs. Here is my list so far:

(HLT, Mashtun) Sight glass with thermometer - http://www.brewhardware.com/index.ph...dess&Itemid=60 x2 - $45 each

(Brew Kettle) Sight glass no thermometer - http://brewhardware.com/index.php?op...dess&Itemid=60 x1 - $27

(HLT, Brew Kettle) 2 x Bulk head with 3 piece ball, standard NPT, 1/2 to 1/2 nipple - http://www.bargainfittings.com/index...product_id=167 $37 each


(Brew Kettle) whirlpool side pickup - http://www.bargainfittings.com/index...product_id=151 - $22.75

(HLT) center pickup - http://www.bargainfittings.com/index...&product_id=94 - $32

(Mash Tun) false bottom with center pickup - http://www.norcalbrewingsolutions.co...roduct181.html - $87



Im not sure what i need for the heat exchanger. i know ill need another ball valve, the copper for the heat exchanger (what size tubing?), another unknown fitting at the top and another ball valve for the output.

For the mashtun, with a herms setup should i batch sparge or fly sparge? I don't really know anything about fly sparging. opinions? equipment needed?

anything im missing? any insight would be great!

why did you go with the 10" false bottom? I'm going to go with a 15" to avoid scorching the mash.

For a mash tun keg, get the 15" false bottom (hinged, with handle and hole drilled) so that you won't need to worry about grain getting under it. That's what I have in my mash keggle (from NorCal/Jaybird too)...

I'm setting up my boil kettle without a bulkhead, just the ball valve and 1/2" NPT to 1/2" compression fitting which gets the dip tube locked in place (reaching to the center of the keggle).

I would also go with QD's wherever possible. That includes anywhere wort will flow. I do like having QD's so that I can use the same hoses (1/2" ID silicone) for both the mash and then chilling the brew after the boil (and running into fermenter).
