Here's ours. We call it "the mammoth." It's about ten feet long, with the ladder. Why so long? Because SCREW YOU, that's why.

Nice! Looks heavy to move about, but nice and solid.

LandoLincoln: I'm jealous of your banjo burner you have under your boil kettle! Mine barely barely fits a keg, that one looks much more friendly. I have like 1/2 inch to spare on each leg where the keg rests.

That's the Bayou Classic KAB6. Yes, it fits a keggle very nicely. The burner we have up top (Bayou Classic SP10) had to have extra metal welded onto the top of it to fit our keggle HLT safely.

Unfortunately, the KAB6's 10" burner underneath really outputs a lot of heat to the sides of the keggle, which will fry your valve and sight glass easily if you don't have some serious heat shielding going on. I've used that burner for about five brews now and I'm still having some problems nailing down the proper heat setting on it so I can reliably hit my target volumes. You turn that thing on full blast and you'll have a rolling boil like you've never seen before.

My brew partner and I are thinking of just getting a 25 gallon pot which should alleviate the heat-to-the-sides issue quite a bit. And we'll be able to brew more beer at once, of course.

What type of surface do you have on top of your sculpture (under your burners)? And how is it working?

That mashtun looks "sexy" - you got some pics from inside?
How large is it? I am thinking to modify my current setup and eyeballing
a similar mashtun-cooler.
thanks
