I put together a simple single vessel stove top system made from an adapted crab cooker.

 

As well as the 1/2" ball valve with cam lock disconnect, I have added a system for holding the inner basket above the wort.

I've done 4 batches of all grain now. One still on tap, one in the fermenter and one in the cube with one already filtered by my liver. So much more enjoyable than kits or extract.

 

I have also built a budget electric grain mill, works really well for BIAB. I run it off my drill and it eats through grain.

I like that you've taken a slow and considered approach to the hobby :)

Nice work hawko,  I am almost finished making my 'Electric Brewery' too, very similar setup except for the control panel, mine is more of a budget version compared to yours, no bells or whistles!!

 

Have you got to test it out yet?

Hi Goodbrew

I have only done a wet test thus far but my first brew will be an American Citra IPA. ( Planned for a couple of days time )

Its going to take a few brews to get all of the settings and nuances sorted.

 

It has taken a while as noted by malt junkie, but I wanted it to be as right as possible, and I work away. So when I'm home, it's spent with the family and brewing when possible.

No doubt there will be tweeks and the March Stainless Pump Heads with 3/4" centre inlet and 1/2" out had to happen due to the volume needed to push wort through 20 metres of 1/2" copper coil.

 

I'm sure you'd be pleased with your setup once finished.

Happy Brewing
