Well, I have posted this elsewhere, but I guess it is time to make it official. This is my 20 gallon single tier, Brutus inspired stand. It is a natural gas, direct fired RIMS controlled by a pair of Blichmann Tower of Power units. Will be trying out the Blichmann LINK software on the next batch. The controllers are mounted on a CRT TV articulating mount.

Next setup will be a full manual brutus 20

Default Here is my all steam brew rig

I have only gotten a chance to use it twice because we just had a baby. But it works great. Took me about a year of building in my free time. I should also add that the dog is just drinking freshwater out of the brew kettle. Everything was cleaned and sanitized after that.

Hey VonMule what is that "thing" (long black tube) behind the dog/kettle? Some kind of chiller? heat exchange?

A year back or so, two of my co workers and I decided to go a bit bigger than our homebrewing systems.

Now our new "sculpture" is produced and November 15 it will be on a ship to Sweden where we have started a new microbrewery.



We do have some more pictures on our facebook page (language is Swedish but the pictures speak their own language)

Flash boiler. It produces all of the hot water and steam. It gives me hot water for strike and sparge, and it gives me steam for step mashing and boiling. Can't take credit though, I borrowed the idea from Kladue and Greenmonti. The tube is actually a quarter inch thick steel pipe, that i picked up form a pipe supplier for 12 bucks, that sucker is heavy considering the weight of the pipe and the 100 ft of copper inside it

Hahaha, good to see the Chiness factory is keeping up with it's H&S!
Looks nice! what size is it, 20hL? Who are you getting to fabricate it and how are they to deal with?
Good luck!

This is my BIAB setup that I mash in a cooler. I was aiming for something compact and easy to clean. I pump strike water from the pot to the cooler then gravity feed my runnings to the kettle (with the bag still in the cooler - no lifting involved). I don't bother with a mashout or sparge as I can hit 78% mash efficiency without either. The stand collapses and sets up in about 20 seconds.

This setup is getting kinda old now. I want to weld up an all stainless single level that is fully automated. I have too many hobbies for this change to happen at any reasonable amount of time.
(don't know why this was flipped on it's side!)
