Very impressive and inspiring! I really like the way you were able to put it to use for transitional batches as well. Great job! Cheers!
Thank you BEER!

Can't wait to hear about the first batches . . .

I've been using as a hybrid system with the pumps and chiller only using a cooler mash tun as shown in the previous posts. I have now tweeked the burners, solenoid valves, Love switches, etc... to work together.

I'll be brewing a BPA the weekend after we get back from NHC.  ;)

Can't wait!  :)

Very nice Ron and Cap.

Thanks Euge.  :)

Capozzoli did some really great welding on the stand. I was super impressed. He's a real pro....no doubt. He'll be happy I posted the brewstand as he's been asking me every month when I was going to post pics.

I think he also wants to use the photos for entry in the Miller Welding competition.

Outstanding, Ron!  That is one Howlin' setup. Definitely worthy of a brewery name like Smokestack Lightning ;)

Seriously, that is one of the cleanest builds I've seen. Caps off to Hats...er, reverse that! ;D
