Default The new single tier sculpture in action

I posted this at the end of a really long thread so in case it got lost in the shuffle, I made a new thread.

So do you have plans to add any particular parts over time? You mentioned a sparge method, what about temp controls on the pumps?

Is there a way to fly sparge with one pump on a single tier?

That shiny keggle is going to turn us all green with envy.

I'm installing a false bottom in the MLT so the only thing I'd have to do to fly sparge is add a second pump. I don't think I'm going to spend the money though because the efficiency is fine as is.

I had considered playing around with HERMS and automated temp control but I want to crawl before walking.

Looks good man. I know you usually brew on the spur of the moment, but let me know if you have any scheduled brews coming up...

Bobby, how do you like using the keg for a mash tun as opposed to the cooler.

Joe, it's certainly different. You probaby shouldn't ask me after the first time because it won't allow me to adapt and lose my bias. The cooler is great for a single temp rest because it holds temps so well. It's set and forget. In the winter, I'm sure I'm going to need to insulate the heck out of the keg to hold temps and probably apply heat a few times during the 60 minutes to keep it in range. I also don't have the keg bolted down to the tippy dump frame so as of right now, cleanup is a pain. We'll see.

Looks great. Nice to see that you're finally able to use that bad boy. How long did it take to get it all together?

I love how the stand with everything in place makes for a (IMO) much more enjoyable brew day.
