I'm in the process of building my single tier system. Everything is ready but the stand! I just got my keggles done last week, so I figured I'd start my build post. Any comments and feedback is welcome! The keggles still need polished, but they're functional.
From left to right: Boil Kettle, HLT, MLT. All have drainage ports with camlock disconnects, 2" dial thermometers.
Boil Kettle has a recirculation port at the top.
Boil Kettle and HLT have calibrated sight glasses that I made with 1/4 gallon increments.
Inside view of the Boil Kettle and MLT. Both have 11.5" SS false bottoms (from midwest). I didn't want to pay the $15 or whatever it cost, to convert the SS pick-up tubes to the 1/2 coupling, so i made my own out of 3/8 copper tubing.
Inside view of the HLT. Nothing fancy, just made a copper pick-up tube that pulls all but an ounce or two of water out of the tank.
