Oh man, thats going to be awesome. I am planning a brutus 10 style system. Would you recommend skipping the 10 gallon batch system and go straight to a 1bbl?

Faded giant

Thanks for looking. Kinda new on hbt. I would say if you can go 1 barrel I'd do it. Why not if your gonna build it, build it big. I have some OCD with everything involved with brewing. Real bad thing haha. Are u fully automating your rig? I say take the plunge.

That is awesome. I agree with the build quality comments, that ought to be around for a long time.

Would you mind sharing the dimensions of your stand? What is the diameter of the 1bbl kettle (could not find specifics on the Stout site)? Not sure if it will be a width issue, but I really like the stands where the kettle handles are oriented front and back to save space.

I have a Morebeer 26g stand with kettles w handles on the sides (in the way imo), if I ever upgrade I am hoping I can go to much larger kettle (w handles front/back) and still fit my stand.

The dimensions of the stand are 84" long by 24" wide and 16" tall with casters on one side and I just got some 3/4" threaded rod for leveling on the other side. I think the stout tanks were around 20" in diameter and 40" tall I think. I think I will also go with a pid control for my burners to control my herms coil. Not sure yet.
