looks great! Is that an NG line coming from the house to power it? Very nice indeed!

Yup, one of the benefits of having an unfinished basement.  1" line all the way to the 250kBTU burners.  I can get 23 gallons to boil in less than 30 mins!

Are those custom fabricated drums for the vessels? Nice build!

Yes, I scored 20 of these barrels from a warehouse for a trade of homebrew, they're 23 gallon stainless steel.  Not heavy gauge or anything, but they had the perfect price.  I've got a TIG welder, so I welded in the sight gauges and valve nipples, and insulated the mash tun.  works very well!

Man, how much home-brew did you cough up for those?  Great deal and cool look.

Nice build. Now when you say custom weld did you weld it or did you get it done?
