I love this build, thanks for sharing. In particular, the drawings, with color, it's a couple steps above what I do and I find it inspiring.

For a wonderful and oriental flared poultry smoke I was wowed with this mix....
1/4 lb of black loose leaf tea
1/2 cup of brown sugar
the peeling of 2 oranges or tangerines
mix the above and put in an aluminum or sacrificial pan and flame under it ....
The sugar melts and the orange oils flavor the tea smoke...highly delightful.
Great! That looks like a cheap n easy solution.http://m.harborfreight.com/router-speed-control-43060.html
If you could figure out a way to do this it would be great. I run my 1/2 drill on a monster mill and just zip tie the trigger all the way closed. It runs much, much faster than it should which shreds the husks.
I picked up this link from a previous forum post. It might be helpful for the zip tied drill. -T
Has anybody tried using something like this to control a drill for a grain mill?
With a little further research, it looks like the kettle is from a weber performer. Thus, it has the bracket already.
Looks like I'm back to rigging something up. But the steel cross braces are a nice idea. Maybe I can hang it with just some steel angles tapped into the kettle with SS bolts.
Have you tried getting your yeast from Morebeer? With their distribution center in Penn., the transit time to Maryland should be minimal. Keystone Homebrew has pretty quick turnaround time too.
Thanks for the replies, I think I'm going with a 5 gallon cooler. If I want to make a big beer, I may have to scale back down to 2.5 or 3 gallon. But I think the 5 gallon cooler will be serviceable as I learn more.
I'd recommend a rectangular cooler since they're easier to use and less expensive. A 48 qt. would be perfect for you.
This thread and the BN COTY one are making me totally at ease with my decision to not go to Baltimore. I'm pretty sure I'll wait for when it's in Portland and just drive down for pro night and call it good.Jim, it was SO much fun! People have a tendency to focus and talk about negative s***. Sure, maybe the banquet isn't worth it for some, but everything else was amazing, most specifically meeting all the rad homebrewers I got to. I hope to make every conference until I die.
Where, exactly, is Old Town?
I would put a safety shield around the gears.
Nice involutes on the gears, how did you cut those?
Does anyone use this and a false bottom for a mash tun? f so, what is your dead space? I just replaced my Rubbermaid cooler and transferred over all of the existing hardware including the false bottom. I had 0.41 gallons of dead space in the Rubbermaid.
