Some people will be aware that Batz sorted me out with some gear to get into an all grain setup. Decided to give the Hot Liquor Tank its first run on Christmas Day.

Since I havent got around to putting a tap in or buying a gas burner, I couldnt actually use it to make beer. Makes a very tasty turkey though and there is no reason why you couldnt do this with a fully equipped HLT.

HLT for turkey

I promise to make beer with it soon. Been thinking about pump vs three tier etc. Cant be bothered messing round with a pump for a single infusion system when all that gravity is available for free for moving fluids. But the boiler is so damn big, and I am aiming to do oversized batches, so not keen to build the system up too high using bits of timber stolen off street verges. So at the moment, the rough design is a two tier system, with a pulley block off a tree for moving heavy things from the bottom tier back up again. Will soon post pics of a boiler and 50 litres of wort at 80 degrees swinging wildly across my back yard.
