Yeah, normal keggles are 1/2bbl limiting you to around 10 gallons. 1bbl is 31 gallons. Three times.

True. Or in other terms I'd be making 330 12 oz beers everytime I brew. Enough for my hockey and baseball teams to last for only 2 weeks

I assumed it was a standard Brutus type build. If it is bigger then great! One thing you might consider though (and this has come up with our brew club's 100 gal system) is that tall narrow vessels take longer to heat/boil than shorter wider ones. If I was going that big, I'd look for shorter, wider vessels and add more burners myself.

Ok, well here we go, I'll finaly post some pics of my setup.

I have been using a three tier gravity system, first pic untill I just got myself a pump yay! and now I have cut down my three tier to have a two tier with an elevated hot liquor tank for gravity sparge and dough in's. and a separate burner for my boiler so that I can re-arrange my system to take up less space if I wan't. wich is why my pump is mounted in an ammo box, for portability and water proofieness.

Three propane tanks? Afraid of running out? Actually I've been wanting to have a full spare just in case.

ha..ha.. ya I actually own four but like to keep three full ones around just incase I run out mid boil, witch has happened. I like to keep a rotation. it really sucks to go fill up your tank mid brew!

The brewstand is the primary, the grill is secondary. When the grill runs out, brew tank to grill, refilled tank to brewery. I get three brews and one good cleaning from a tank before I worry.

Hey cruzn, how tall is the burner stand holding the keg on the left side of the 3 tier? I'm thinking about building a stand, rather than ordering one with a burner, and trying to figure out the best height.
