    So the keg-cutting-jig...

    I used a 4x6 joist hanger (could have gotten away with a 4x4) and cut it down to not get in the way of the guard on the grinder. Drilled some holes in it for large bolts to thread into the grinder, used a double-nut on one side to securely hold the grinder upright, and a PVC spacer on the other to snug things up. This was fastened to a 1.25" PVC coupler by a length of all-thread. The only change that's hard to see is I used a double-nut setup on the 'back' side of the couple after discovering how much the vibration loosened things up.















    I touched up the edges of the grind with a 60-grit flapper disc on the grinder till I can run my finger around the whole thing and not find any sharp places.

    I am also re-configuring the brew-stand, since I got my 2nd burner for free. It sits fairly tall, so I can lose the bottom tier, and just use the frame to bolt the legs of the burner to. Now, I only need to move the 2nd and 3rd tiers up by 8" and everything will be spaced properly. Going to work on that tomorrow I guess.

    I love where this thread is going. When you're done, write up a proper DIY, so I can do it when I'm ready to brew. It probably wont be until the E21 is done. Or else Kim would kill me for spending money on two projects.
    I make pretty stuff

    Adam, all you *really* need is a 5 gallon kettle and a fermenter (6.5 gallon carboy/better bottle/food-grade bucket). That's enough to get you started.

    also, I'm hoping some more of my stuff sells, then I might just skip this whole gravity thing and go straight to a single level

    Good point....i'll shoot them off an email.
    I have a weird space in my garage that is 48"high x 40"wide x 40"deep so a chest freezer would fit in there really nice!

    Check out this thread over on HBT! OMG!
