    Home Brew Maggots

    First pull of my 6.3% latte stout. I left it on the beans 2 extra days as I didnít have time to keg it and the pumpkin spice got overwhelmed.

    Home Brew Maggots

    My buddy built this carousel brew sculpture recently. One burner three kegs. Itís for sale in NorCal.







    Up for sale is the most unique all grain setup you may ever see. As far as I know there is no other stand in the world using this design. Be the envy of all your home brew friends.

    I have have numerous stand designs over the years and built this one to get rid of a few issues that typical designs have. I call it the Ferris Brewheel.

    It is a ferris wheel design so that you don't need any pumps and only need one burner. The HLT and boil kettle can both be rotated so that they are above the burner. This was my prototype and does have a couple small annoyances. First one is that the mash tun can not pass over the burner so you have to change directions to get to various positions. You might be able to fix this if you got a 90 degree fitting for the bottom of the mash tun (it is a bottom draining mash tun). The second issue is that there is some play in the worm drive used to rotate the wheel and it causes the kegs to bounce a little as you turn it. This can be reduced by steadying the wheel with one hand or by turning slowly.

    Included is just about everything you need to brew. The only things not included are a propane tank (could be easily converted to natural gas if you wanted) and ingredients. Feel free to email me with any questions about the system.

    Sale includes:
    -Stand
    -3 converted kegs. One is a bottom draining mash tun that is set up with a BIAB bag (way easier for cleanup, but you could certainly use a false bottom instead if you wanted to). The other two have two fittings each. One fitting is male on the outside and female on the inside. Both have dip tubes. There is also a second half coupler on each keg in case you wanted to add a sight glass or thermometer.
    -burner with hose for propane
    -two better bottle carboys
    -bottling bucket
    -bottling wand
    -bottle capper
    -new bag of bottle caps
    -auto siphon
    -large stainless steel spoon
    -new hop bag
    -air locks
    -1000ml flask in case you want to make starters
    -beginners brewing book
    -large immersion chiller
    -thermometer
    -enough starsan for your first batch or two
    -carboy cleaning brush

    Price is $1000 firm. Lower offers will be ignored. May accept an argon tank or 75/25 tank for welding in. Will take $1 per cubic foot of tank size off the price as long as it is an owner tank and has a current hydro stamp. 125 cubic foot minimum.
    I respond to emails quickly.

    Ok, I will go with what I was going to say in the first place.

    Its fkn retarded and a waste of welding/effort.

    Why does everyone not have these????

    Beyond failure.

    Brew in a bag.

    It was developed in Aussieland and is used extensively in the new technology electric systems. Although it originally used a heavy nylon bag(and still can) increasingly it will utilize 400 micron SS mesh baskets. It is used primarily to contain the mash.

    BIAB allows the use of a single pot for all the major steps in the brewing process.

    I like it. And there is no such thing as a waste of welding. Any time spent in the garage under the hood making something cool is time well spent.

    Brew in a bag, as Scotty said. Heat up the mash water, line your kettle with the bag and stir in the grains. When the mash is done, pull the bag with the grains and let it drain.

    You can see it here on my stove mashing a stout.

    PSA, Costco has Ommegang Rare beer sets for $25.

    I also preordered a Robobrew, pretty stoked to get it.

    This will allow me to brew in winter or bad weather. Sounds like sometime in Dec.

    I went to Costco last night because of the Ommegang thing, the one CO location with alcohol had the game of thrones edition for I think $16. I've never watched the show but grabbed one anyway, the beers sound interesting.

    Putting together a COlab. Norwegian farmhouse yeast in a wheat wine, with spruce tips, juniper, and gin botanicals. Calling it "Gin-U-Wine" or something like that.

    Yes, it's intended for aroma only. Ideal for those Nu England IPAs

    Much better than the hypo injectors filled with that tar like hop reduction that coats everything and is a PITA to clean.

    Haven't played with those yet. I had some samples but they weren't big enough so gave em away. A friend who has used em complained of a gritty feel to the beer, like they didn't drop out in the whirlpool or the ferm. Don't know. I'll try em someday.
