I decided to sell my 3 vessel keggle and cooler MLT setup along with one of my pumps so I could gather some funds for this. So here it goes:
I decided on a 15 gallon kettle from Brewers Hardware that is all tri-clamp welded fittings. The kettle includes a tangential input for whirlpooling. I also added a ferrule for my element.
I have added sanitary butterfly valves to the kettle and purchased a 2x2 SS shelf for everything to sit on. Luckily, the previous owner of the house moved the laundry area to an addition on the 1st floor so that opens this area up for me. Now I have water, a 30 amp circuit, and a dryer vent.
Next step is to mock it up. I haven't added hose clamps yet but will once everything is in the right spot. I will also be adding a good over the pump.
I put in a trub filter that I had from my last setup. I get that it's not a necessary piece but I like removing most of the protein and hop matter prior to fermenter. Personal preference. Plus I like the bling.
I've upgrade my pump head to a SS center inlet 3/4". The output has a 3- way ball valve that goes to 1. The whirlpool port and 2. To the fermenter.
I'm still working on my oxygenation setup not pictured.
Next step is to install my spa panel and build my PID control panel.
Well, that's all for now. More to come.
