Nice looking piece! Do you notice an flow restriction with the several 90 degree elbows? Also do you notice and trub getting into your primary vessels?

I hardly get any trub at all, I usually get a nice hop cone. My system is gravity fed, with the CFC below the BK and the Carboy below that, gravity sucks the wort right out. My CFC is 3/8 copper and my fittings in the BK are 1/2 inch so it can only flow so fast.

Ship Wreck Brewing

This is a hand built 2-tier RIMS setup...like everyone else it is a work in progress! Still trying to figure out where to permanently attach the 10 plate chiller I got (and the main mast :-)

Also working on getting some kind of arduino setup that will yell at me when i hit target temps and such.

There are a few more pics on the website if your interested!

Boil kettle for 5 gallon batches? That is my guess.

Ok here's my mostly homemade rig. It's simple but it makes good beer.

The hot liquor tank is my old boil kettle. A 7.5 gal Turkey Fryer that came with the burner. The new boil kettle is a 9 gal SS Steamer Pot made by the same company (Bayou Classic).
I have all SS 3 piece valves and fittings. I made the two tables from 100% scrap wood that was laying around the house. The table top used to be a leaf out of a table.



My homemade kettle screen. I made it by putting a SS coil of wire inside a aircraft quality SS overall shield braid and clamping it to the SS "T".


Here's my homemade sparge setup. Just an old pie plate that I drilled holes in.


This is the false bottom inside my mash tun.



It's not fancy but it'll get the job done.
