Well, my all-grain setup is finally complete. My sister had a propane tank just chilling in the corner of her garage, and it turns out that she didn’t even want it! Wow, that is just one more thing I got free.
I need to add it up:
The mash tun and draining apparatus was $30. The Keg was $15 plus another $15 for cutting supplies and $35 for the stainless steel spigot. The burner was $40 which included a 30 gallon pot that I will use to boil water. I’ll even include the $8 I spent on a 3 gallon pot at the thrift store. I’ve got an all grain setup for under $150. I don’t know about you, but I think that is pretty good. I still want to build a sparge water distributer, but that shouldn’t be more than $15.
Thrift is part of the fun in this for me. I could just go buy the commercial stuff, but finding deals is half the fun!
