I'm not sure if I follow you fully, but I believe what you ask is indeed what I plan to do. Looking at the images in my last post, i will have hose hooked up to the out (bottom center) running to a pump and back up to the recirc port on the upper right. I'm just missing some Stainless tubing to go in the recirc port. That's what I meant by "Just waiting to order dip tubes and a recirc arm from Zach at Stainlessbrewing.com to finish the HLT." The recirc arm just being a piece of 1/2" tubing to go into a compression fitting on the inside of the kettle. Let me know if this is what you meant.modo,
it looks like this is your hlt. why not just recirc at the out port and back to the water in port?
Thanks! I'm doing the same thing, I'll be scrapping/selling 2 keggles and a cooler for this setup. Still using propane until this is ready.thirstyutahn said:Looking great man!
What are ya gonna do for a false bottom for your mash tun?
After seeing this build and doing some more thinking I've decided to sell my kegs and buy some of these pots instead.
Hard to beat the price and it seems like they would be perfect for electric. I also like the 20 gallon cap better than 15.
Sorry to revive a dead thread, but this is basically what im trying to do(Stainless coil in Concord 80Qt Pot)Thanks! I'm doing the same thing, I'll be scrapping/selling 2 keggles and a cooler for this setup. Still using propane until this is ready.
I'm going to most likely use a custom false bottom from Jay (Jaybird on here I believe), Nor Cal Brewing.
The price is great and the kettles are pretty nice, def not Blichmann quality but great for the price. Good luck with your build and let me know if you have questions.
I haven't added the tippy dump to this version yet. I wanted to just get a structure built so that I can actually get back to brewing. As for holding things in place, I believe I will use a combination of SS hooks and turnbuckles to grab ahold of the handles and then have some type of wooden lip at the front of the pot to keep it from sliding forward when tipping. Stay tuned, as that may be something I implement if I end up hating cleaning out the mash as it is right now.With the tippy dump, how do you hold the kettle in place?
