Hey, there are instructions for any brewing related project that you could ever think of on here. I have done a bunch of them (never got to the keggle today, but it will happen next weekend), and I want to do a bunch more. This is the best brewing forum out there.

Could be that your thread title is vague and people don't want to poke in here just to find out what you're talking about?

I'll play. A CFC based on Bobby's instructional, An IC that I saw somebody on YouTube build, CPVC manifold for a retangular cooler MLT, ended up not using and and went with SS braid. And eventually traded that MLT out for a 10g round igloo and SS false bottom. A keggle with sight glass and SS ballvalve, a HLT using a 32qt aluminum tortilla pot, sight gage, ball valve, theremomenter installed. I think that about it. I did mess around with some copper tubing to solder togeher a venturi to aerate wort but gave it to a friend. Also made two kegerators.

I'm still relatively new to Homebrewing (1 year), but I have made a mash paddle with Cornusker insignia, my brewing partner and I threw together a 10 MLT out of a Gatorade cooler, ran a siphon tube from my brewing area (garage) down to my fermenting area (basement workshop), and a 15 gallon plastic conical fermenter with rolling stand (obtained the plans on the DIY Sticky page).

We brewed our first 10 gallon batch a few weeks ago, and due to poor planning, had a difficult time getting the cooled wort down to the basement at 1:30 AM. It was quite the debacle. The next day I was already drilling a hole in my basement to run the tubing, which has since proved to be the second best project to date. The conical is still the best $125 project I/we have attempted. Now we have carboys and fermenting buckets lying around holding nothing but brewing equipment/supplies.
