The Brewery

ah, this is where all the magic happens. All total it cost around $1300 to purchase the parts, consisting of:

  • 55 gallon stainless steel drum $300 from ebay
  • 50 feet of angle iron (1″ and 2″) about $60 from home depot
  • 1 55 gallon HDPE drum (blue) $55 from Colorado Zero Waste
  • 1 55 gallon HDPE drum (white) $15 from Colorado Zero Waste
  • 1 chugger pump, $120 from pumps for less
  • 1 march pump $220 ish from morebeer.com
  • 1 60 plate chiller $60 from kegcowboy.com
  • 1 30 plate (12″X24″) $400 from somewhere i cant remember, but dudadesil.com has the same one
  • a bunch of copper and fittings, sodder, flux etc from home depot $100
  • water heater blanket from homedepot for hot liquor tun

Labor was extensive. If I had to do it again, I would have bought a false bottom for the Mash tun, and skipped the smallish 55 gallon hot liquor tank. Because I double or triple batch, I need a bigger HLT.
