Portable march Pump
« on: May 24, 2012, 01:15:10 PM »
Other than the "Wort Pump In a Toolbox", are there any other designs for making a march pump portable?  I don't need great portability, but I can't mount it to a brewing structure either.   Just need to be able to have it free-standing, basically.

I used to have it in a plastic toolbox, but found that the weight of my valves and fittings was making the pump not work so well (you'd have to see the crazy manifold I constructed), I removed it and mounted it to a 1 foot piece of 2x12 with a waterproof switchbox....I clamp it to a sawhorse that my mash tun sits on.  The whole system breaks down and stores in the garage.
You wouldn't believe the things I've seen...

Here's the link to the thread about the portable "pump stool" I built to hold my pump and plate chiller.

I just finished reworking my pump so it is portable. I will email you the photos, if you like.
Beer is an ancient beverage that has been consumed as part of a balanced diet for centuries - it contains the goodness of sprouted grain extracted into rich liquid and fermented to produce a nutritional 'liquid cereal' beverage.
