Does anyone know how much shipping usually is? They don't like to tell you until after you pay. I live in Pa

It was exactly 1 year ago that I ordered my steel from McMaster, but I remember I spent about $145 for the steel, angle plates, and nuts and bolts. Shipping was shocking low, at about $16-$17. And that arrived at my work the next day. But if you have a McMaster around you, you can go pick it up yourself and save the shipping costs.

Thanks... the panel the pumps are mounted to and the drip shield over the top of the pumps are just made of some extra sheet metal that I "borrowed" from work

I got my March 809 pumps from Ebay... there is a seller on there USA PUMPS I think, I got them for $105 each with free shipping. Much much cheaper than anywhere else I could find.

Started on the keggle conversions...did the cut manually so definitely going to have to go back and smooth everything up.

Looks great....I considered doing a similar weldless build using Benders thread, but went into an entirely different direction. I decided to start building an all electric HERMS system like Kal's Redirecting to TheElecticBrewery.com and devote a portion of the unfinished side of my basement for a dedicated brewing room. One word of advice.....add the corner supports IMHO. You are dealing with a lot of weight in boiling hot liquids/grains/etc. with the larger vessels for 10+ gallon batches. The corner plates are very inexpensive and I believe are well worth the investment from a safetly perspective. Can't wait to see you fire this thing up! Good luck.

How difficult is it to maintain a stable mash temperature with a direct fired recirculating keggle mash tun? I want to do something likethisbut don't quite have the money to go the brutus route yet. About how many times do you have to fire the burner to heat up the mash on average?

It's 54" long, 16.5" wide and 21" tall

Definitely going to add the steel plates, I just couldn't find them at lowes.
