I brewed NRB's All Amarillo on 1/3/17. Overall the experience was positive, although there's room for improvement. I hit my volume targets but missed the gravity estimates , although there's an issue with the temperature I took the measurements at, which I will correct on the next brew. Not knowing exactly what to expect, I was surprised at how well it went.
The beer's been in the fermenter for 11 days and has reached a final gravity of 1.010. I'll transfer to a keg within the next couple of days & carbonate. Appearance is extremely hazy & I may use gelatin after kegging. Will make that decision after it's carbonated.

Cart materials are from 80/20 Inc in Columbia City, IN. It's 1515-Lite t-slot aluminum extrusion, cut to my specs, counterbored for anchor fasteners connecting the legs & crossmembers, with legs tapped for threaded casters. Strong technical support from them while designing, good customer service & 2 day turnaround on multiple orders, as the project morphed after I got started. It was designed so each section could be at a different height, so if/when I might go electric, I can raise the kettle section to the same height as the other. If I were to ever go to a 3 kettle system, I can add 2 legs & 6 cross members & have a 24x72 work surface. The carbon water filter, the pump and the pump outlet/switch box are mounted to the frame. I fill the kettle in the garage & roll it about 75' outside to where my gas hookup is & then roll it back into the garage when hooking up the chiller.
