I just signed up for BYO, not sure if I'll get this issue but I hope so. May have to order a back issue.

I was looking at some pre-made systems (MoreBeer if I recall has several in this price range, but this morning couldn't get access to their website). I would think the Brutus Ten would have more functionality or better components for the same price as these.
Yeah, I am absolutely no welder... I bought my keggles pre-cut and welded. and built the stand out of wood. (Link to my setup in post #9 above)

Doesn't he used stainless square tube for the stand? You could probably cut the cost down a LOT if you used standard hot rolled steel.

(I haven't seen the plans, so maybe he already made that change, but it seems like there's be ~$900 worth of stainless tube stock in the costs)

What about the Brutus 20? Anybody have any thoughts on it? I was all ready to go on the Brutus 10 and then I found the 20. I'm thinking that is the way I'm going.

I will put togeather a parts list with $$$. of what I have so far.
I am look for the contronl valves for the fuel lines. (will be the hardest to come by).
if you use steel it should be around $100 for the stand ($300 plus for SS).
I have a friend with a small wire feed welder we have onyl put 5-6 hrs in so far and we are about 2/3 done with the stand. I am using Huracane burners.
thanks for all the input and pics. will try to post some with my list.

You can also order back issues on BYO's web site.

Hmm...that's a very unique way of doing it! I can't see anything wrong with it...it should prove to make a pretty compact system!

You can get the stainless cheaper if you shop around. I got mine for $240 and I added a tippy dump to the mash tun.

I got 9" 23 jet burners for $24 each also but the rest of the pricing in BYO seems to be right on.

I am holding off on the asco valves and pid controllers for awhile to lower the cost.

I've always been a fan of erector sets. Where are these sold? What brands to search for? I feel good about anything not involving welding.

What about the Brutus 20? I just read that and it looks even simpler than the 10. Any opinion on the sparging for the 20, which essentially recirculates wort back over the grains until equilibrium between the HLT and MT?

Is clean up on this straightforward? Tippy tump MT seems important to build in.
