Brewtius Maximus/The Braxton 10 – Complete Single Tier Build

I’m going to try to document this whole build, but there may be some time between posts. I’ll keep it updated as much as I can. I’ve scoured the forums for different ideas, and I’ve taken what I like and plan on building a combination of the things I like. Now it’s my time to post.
I brew on a simple wooden 3 tier gravity stand, very simple, but very tall:



I made some pretty good beers on it, but it is time for a change. So I hopped on a few different design programs, and what I ended with can be seen here:

Front View


Angle view


The Back


Water Plumbing


The Bottom, with propane plumbing


With Kegs

A single tier, 3 burner, 2 pump keggle stand. The propane and water will be hard plumbed, and the “control” panel will be a simple build, not much automation. A couple switches for pumps, igniters for the various burners and maybe a timer or two. I also thought that it would be nice to have a drawer and shelf for various things as well – plus diamond plate looks sweet.

I have already ordered my pumps: 2 stainless steel inline Chuggers, and the plate chiller that BobbyM sells 30 plate long. These should arrive sometime this week, pictures upon arrival.I plan on ordering the steel within the next week, and my buddy and I are going to weld it.

Please feel free to give me your advice or ask any questions.

Is that SketchUp or something else? SketchUp makes me cry, I'm trying to find a better app to model my DIY projects in. (No talent whatsoever with this stuff...)

Also, I'm subscribed and watching for your progress, best luck to you on your build!

Thanks for the feedback so far! Those pictures where taken from Sketchup, but the design started in ACADD and pro/ENGINEER. It was just a lot easier for me to take a couple snap shots from Sketchup and finish customizing the build, i.e. the diamond plate. It's not all that hard to use - it just takes practice. With being a full time student - majoring in mechanical engineering, and working 2 jobs it gets a little hectic, but these programs are what I utilize the most. But the one nice thing about sketchup is most of the short cuts are the same as ACADD.

Subscribed to this. It comes at a very timely time, as we've just decided to go for a bigger/more efficient brew set-up.
