Ok, you are going to have to give some detail on that man!

That tube and shell chiller looks like a repurposed shotgun condenser. Pretty slick looking rig.

Nice build, but I have to say the frame span looks too long.
Measure the distance from the ground to to the top rail, fill the center kettle with water and measure again. This will give you a base idea of the deflection. The steel will soften significantly with the burners you chose. We had a customer who modified his stand and put over-sized burners on it, The frame was glowing red. Also, be sure to mount those burners at least 12" below the kettles.

Thanks guys I appreciate the compliments. I worked out all the kinks on this one from my last system. I have a frame just like this but with 25 gallon pots and I have not had any problems with it yet. I had it full to the rim with water and grain and it didn't bow at all. I do plan to put heat shields around the burners.

A work on progress, but finished enough to show off. I still need to plumb up my herms coil and the other pump, finish my bottom drain mash keggle and get the boil probe installed. Both burners are controlled with Honeywell hot surface ignition modules and Robert shaw combination gas valves.

Now that the pump box is finished the brew rig takes a new form.

This just looks confusing.

I got a simle 5 gal boil pot for 2.5 gal boils and a plastic fermenter.

Never seen rigs like this before.

Hi all, new poster to this forum. Here's my new 4v HERMS nearing completion.

There's some very nice rigs in this thread. And some innovative ideas.

Cheers,
Cam.

Hopefully this isn't a stupid question: What is that corny keg looking thing hanging down between the left and middle keg?
