I have always wanted a brewstand ever since I read my first Zymurgy Magazine. The question at hand is "What kind of brewstand will work for me".
I want something practical with some automation and something that will stand the test of time. Something that will be able to take a licking and keep on brewing.
The answer for me was "The Brutus 10".
With the help of the superior welding and fabrication skills of Capozzoli. We started the "Brutus 10 Build".
This is a work in progress.
Here we are at The Capozzoli Metalworks Cafe.
The metal has arrived. We have (2x) 2"x2"x20' by .120" wall 304 Stainless Steel square tubing. Ready to cut!
Welding the gas inlet valves.
Just in case you were wondering who was welding. It's the one and only, never lonely Mr. "Capozzoli"!
This is an example of a sanitary weld around the gas inlet valve.
This is the gas arm ready to be tacked into the rear frame assembly.
I will continue to update this thread as progress is made.
