Cart plans are solidified, Basically 13" deep, 36" long and 28" tall (plus caster height). I wanted a relatively small footprint and am staging the keg rests on top to accommodate anything from 1/6BBL to 1/2BBL kegs. Stainless tubing and diagram are at the welders shop and should have more pics up later this week.

NICE!! Can't thank you enough for the recommendations!

Man I love the keg washer! I will be hitting you up for a little more 411 once we get the brewery installed in the store. Great build!!

Cheers

Coming along nicely, missing the casters and some hardware but should be able to test this out this weekend hopefully.

Yes, coming together nicely. Need to figure a way to get my other valve assembly mounted as well as where to put the control box.

Don't you need a rinse cycle between the clean and sanitize?

I'm going to be using an acid based CIP solution as opposed to PBW which would require a rinse

So long as the clean cycle switch over doesn't contaminate the sanitation cycle I guess you are fine.

I checked out a couple commercial two station keg washers and they both used a common bus and single pump so I think I will be fine. If not I'll isolate the tanks and plumbing but that will be even more ludicrous than this set up ; )

First thoughts in slow motion in my head..... "Whaaaat THE F@##$$$%%"

There have only been a few things I have seen in homebrewing that make me do this and that is at the top of my list. Kudos my man
