Brewery Expansion V1

…kind of…

I am now in the ‘equipment collection’ phase.   I have, on order, a 3 bbl gas-fired system from Stout tanks.  That will be here Early March 2014.  It’s in production now.  This system will be an insulated mash tun, and insulated boil kettle and an insulated hot liquor tank.  Insulated added to the cost, but will be well worth it as far as bringing water/wort up to temperature, holding it and safety reasons.  Here is a pic of what it should look like:

I also recently received a 21.5 gallon brewpot from Stout Tanks to replace the 15 gallon converted sankey keg.  I have migrated to brewing a full 17 gallons – so that when I keg I get a clean 15 gallon batch.  I have been doing dual boils as I can’t fit a full 17 gallon pre-boil recipe in the old 15 gallon boil kettle.

New 21.5 gallon boil kettle from Stout Tanks.  These are nice as they have the same diameter as a 15 gallon keg so I had very little stand modification needed.
