Burch Brew 2.0 is a 10 gallon, single tier electric brew rig. PID controlled 5500w elements in the boil kettle and hot liqueur tank and a HERMS setup for the Mash Lauter Tun. Using 2 x Chugger pumps with the poly heads for transferring (upgrade to stainless eventually) and a copper CFC. Using 3 x 16 gallon SS Bayou Classic kettles. Put the system together myself but did purchase a DIY kit for the panel, too many pieces to get right. Its similar to a Kal clone, or at least inspired by that setup. I've brewed 3 batches so far and learned a few lessons, which isn't that unusual on a new setup (i think). I like to call it my 1/3 barrel Brewery, since measuring things is bbl is always better.
