A buddy asked me to post this for him. He's local in the East SF Bay Area.

I would contact him on craigslist if you are interested. I will relay messages, but I do not post here often.



I am selling my BRUTUS style brew system. This system is designed following the theories originally published by Lonnie Mac. The system is 1 year old and makes great beer.

Temperatures in the Hot Liquor Tank and Mash Tun are digitally monitored and maintained via automated burner control for accuracy and ease of repeatable brewing. The all stainless steel stand was fabricated by a professional D18.1/D9.1 certified welder here in the bay area. The system is fully plumbed via (2) March pumps with center port inlets for better flow. Wort is cooled via a plate chiller mounted on a hinged mount for drainage. . To protect the electrical components from heat and liquid exposure all wiring is fully enclosed inside welded square tubing next to the propane manifold. All switches on control panel are capped with rubber waterproof covers. All electrical operations are controlled from a single location.

Too many details to list here- truly must see to appreciate.

I am selling this unit as a package deal with a full sized single door digitally temperature controlled (Ranco) refrigerator for fermentation and all the accessories needed to operate the system; propane tanks, hydrometer, refractometer, brewing books, scales, carboys, gloves, converted Sanke fermentor and spare parts.

I spared no expense when building this home brewery because I never intended to sell. Circumstances have changed and I am unable to continue this hobby.

List of components:

-Custom designed/fabricated all stainless steel rolling brewery.

-2 March pumps flush mounted in stainless vented pump box.

-Brew Kettle and Mash Tun have 10 inch banjo burners digitally controlled.

-1 8-tip jet burners (80,000 btu) on HLT.

-3 pilot lights with needle valves.

-3 STC electronic solenoid gas valves (3 spare ASCO valves included).

-2 digital LOVE controls mounted in fully enclosed control box.

-Low pressure adjustable propane regulator with pressure gauges.

-Silicone High Temp liquid lines with custom.

-4 hoses with all SS quick disconnect fitting from More Beer.

-3 analog thermometers mounted in all three vessels.

-False bottoms in both the Brew Kettle and Mash Tun.

15 gallon Mash Tun keggle with False Bottom and "whirly-gig" sparge arm.

15 gallon Hot Liquor Tank keggle.

-Custom control panel box with custom made terminal board.

-Custom liquid measuring stick made from square tubing.

-Fire extinguisher mounted.

-Stainless steel bottle opener mounted on unit.

-Complete pentair water filtration system built in.
