    In search of Toppling Goliath brewery clone

    Yes me too...but I'm mainly interested a clone in their Pineapple Papaya Fandango. I assume the base would be a Berliner weisse but I'm unsure...new to kettle sours.

    3 roller mill trap door mod for adjustment

    This is a great idea. That would definitely be a perfect mod for quick adjustments between wheat and a normal grain bill. Thanks for sharing Bobby! Looking forward to testing the RIMS tube system that you just shipped to me!

    3 roller mill trap door mod for adjustment

    You have no problem getting the feeler gauge in between the rollers? I'm used to using a 2 roller mill (barley crusher) and it was pretty straight forward in that you just put the feeler gauge between the two rollers. The video I saw online showed having the hopper taken off and putting the...

    3 roller mill trap door mod for adjustment

    I suppose it won't be a big deal in the long run, I've just been playing with the gap to see what works best for my system. And yes it would be nice to make adjustments quickly for wheat.

    3 roller mill trap door mod for adjustment

    You can still adjust it, it's just hard getting the feeler gauges in to get between the drive roller and the bottom idlershaft.

    3 roller mill trap door mod for adjustment

    Hey guys, I recently bought a 3 roller geared monster mill with their hopper. I didn't realize you had to remove the hopper to adjust the gap of the rollers. Anyway I was wondering if anyone has installed some sort of hinged trap door so you do not have to remove the whole hopper? If so I'd...

    Welding a brew stand

    Perfect thanks! Okay. I should be fine then, i'm about 14" from center of pump head to bottom of lowest valve. Yep just looked at the pictures from my first and only use of the pump and now I see why I had a heck of a time....inlet was facing up...

    Welding a brew stand

    Thanks fusa! I got them on ebay. I bought the pack of 20 so I have several extras They also sell a pack of 10. I was also thinking of welding caps on as well. But decided that was too much extra work...

    Welding a brew stand

    Yeah forgot that I took pictures before and after I switched the output to facing up. Other than the location of the output should it work good from this location? I didn't know if the pump would work better down lower or if it made a difference as long as you were below the lowest valve.

    Welding a brew stand

    Almost done! Just need to trim the legs to the step down a bit. I don't have much experience with pumps. Would it work ok if I mounted my pump how it is now or is that not low enough? Was even thinking of mounting it with it mounted upside down on the bottom side of the shelf. Any tips would...

    Welding a brew stand

    Finally made a little more progress. Shelf and bottoms are basically done. Got the mounting brackets for the blichmann burners welded on. Still need to find a good place to weld on pump bracket and weld on a hinged step.

    Using well water

    I have well water and it works great with a little diluting and some small brew salt additions. Yeah I would send a water sample in to ward labs like everyone else is saying. I did that a while back and really have my water profiles dialed in. Otherwise try making a batch. A good...

    Welding a brew stand

    Thanks for all your help! I ended up buying some expanding casters from castercity. I talked to the owner on the phone, he was very helpful. Its coming along. We had some warping going on because of the stainless pulling from the heat but I think it will be fine. Unfortunately had to make a...

    Welding a brew stand

    Thanks Day tripper for posting your drawing and thanks to Socal for sharing your dimensions. Fusa your brewstand is coming along great, thanks for posting the pic. I have my tubing ordered so I'm hopping to start building it in the next couple weekends. Where did you guys get your casters...

    Welding a brew stand

    Do you mind telling me the depth and height of your brew stand? You have a similar setup to mine so just curious. Thanks in advance!

    Welding a brew stand

    You've convinced me to reconsider the depth. I've kind of made a compromise between your idea and mine. On the bottom portion, I've modified it to about 25" wide by removing one of the extra 70.313" portions off the drawing I posted. Still have two long sections parallel, so the burners are...

    Welding a brew stand

    Thank for your input and especially the modified sketch. I like your idea, you're right I don't need those extra pieces on the middle section. My thought was to incorporate a shelf on the middle level but I wouldn't need those pieces to accomplish that. I have the extra width on the bottom...

    Welding a brew stand

    Attached is a drawing of my welded brewstand. Planning on making it out of 1.5 x 1.5 square tubing, 304 14 GA. The pot on the left is my HLT. I will have a pump below that I will use to pump the strike water, and sparge water to my mash tun in the center. Then gravity feed from the mash tun...
