Default Anyone build a portable brew sculpture?

Hi All,

I'm thinking of building a basic brew sculpture - more of a brew table that can facilitate gravity feeds with a CFC and fly sparging - and was wondering if anyone has come up with something portable along these lines? Something collapsible would be good from a storage perspective, and I plan on doing group brewing two or three times a year. I saw in a thread a pic of someone using two foldable aluminum ladders to create elevation, which gave me the idea. Anyone seen something that I should check out?

Cheers,

Jason

I use 2 folding plastic sawhorses with a 2' x 4' 1" plywood (a 4' x 8' sheet cut 4 times). I put the burner & pot over the 1 sawhorse and the mashtun over the second. Everything folds flat. I spare into the grain buckets, move the burner & pot down after sparging, and then boil. This allows for gravity mashing & sparging.

Cheers, Dan F.

Try this link out. I don't know if you will be able to use the cfc but he says that he can do 10 gal batches

great tips everyone, thanks!

monster - I really wish I bought a double burner - I'm going to have to upgrade.
Dan - that is similar to what I am doing.
craigbrew - that looks great. I'm going to dig in and probably build one of those.

Here's one that's got side shelves on it. (link)




The shelves can slide over to cover the burners when not in use. There's also a version with three burners.
