That's what I thought - nice touch! Was it difficult to run the propane line inside?

Yeah, how did you manage that? Rigid pipe inside the tubing? Seems like it would have been a pain to do, although it does give it a really nice look.

No, it's just like the other original brutus builds. Cap the ends of the tube to create the manifold and then weld half couplings to it for your gas valves. Nothing goes inside.

here is the evolution of my sculpture

the humble beginnings
a pot, cheap cooler and a keg for a boil kettle that i had to lift up on the one burner i had :


as i couldn't stand lifting the brew kettle any more i decided to build a what i call a 2 1/2 tier sculpture consisting of 2 burners, one pump and a beter cooler


this sculpture had worked great for the last year and a 1/2, but i wanted more accuracy, and the only way i could figure that out was update the sculpture to 1/2 electric.
now i have electric HLT with a herms coil inside of it:


the HERMS in action(the beginnings of a breakfast stout running through the lines):

You'd have to brew about 3 batches using keggles to get 1 bbl. A keg is actually 1/2 bbl.

Who said he's using kegs? All he showed was the brew stand being built.

The stand is 74" long and 22" deep. Large enough for 1 BBL.
