Reader Photo: Stainless Table as a DIY Brew Stand

Thanks to HBF Reader Rob for the photo and project idea!  [8 Ways to Connect with HBF]

From Rob… “Here is a picture of my mobile brewery setup using the Trinity Stainless table. I made a few mods for stability, but it works better than I expected. First mod, I cut the table legs shorter and second mod is I purchased some heavy duty casters for stability so I could easily move it loaded up with my mash and sparge water. I used the casters that came with for a couple of brews, but loaded up it was unstable enough for me to decide to change them. I can get everything setup the night before in the garage, roll it out in the morning and brew outside. My setup is with 10 Gal kettles for 5 gal batches and it works awesome. It would be a bit tight with larger kettles and add more weight.”

I have the non-wheeled version of this table and it’s great.  I use it for my brew area work table.  SeeTRINITY EcoStorage NSF Stainless Steel Table, 48-Inch [Hands on Review]

Note that Rob’s DIY project involved modifying this table to make a brewing setup.  That is outside of what I would call a typical use for a table like this.  Always use caution when fire, heat, propane, boiling liquids are involved.

Stainless Steel CIP Spray Balls for Sparging and Cleaning

8c3c93a1-b53a-4be0-b96b-30f2ecf67a80Thanks to HBF Reader Sam for this photo!  [8 Ways to Connect with HBF]

CIP (Clean in Place) Spray Balls are generally used for vessels that are too large to move.  Since they’re too large to move you… clean them in place.  If you have a larger setup, you could incorporate these into your system or routine to help clean your vessels more easily.

Seller QM Stainless on Amazon offers a variety of spray balls including stationary and rotary.  Note that if you’re going to try and use this for sparging, you may want to use the fixed spray version as Sam did.  You’re probably not going to get enough pressure with gravity alone to turn the rotary version.

A couple specific models to consider:

HBF Reader Sam uses this spray ball as part of his sparging setup.  See photo above.

Sam Says…

“I recently purchased a fixed spray ball – my original intent was to use it for a keg / carboy cleaner but have been playing with it in my mash re-circulation set-up. I screwed a spare male quick disconnect into the spray ball and held it in position over the tun. It worked so well that I am considering drilling a hole in the lid of my cooler and using it there permanently. Here’s a picture of it in action last Saturday.”

I use this rotary spray ball with my Mark II Keg and Carboy Cleaner.  See: Mark II Keg and Carboy Washer Mod – SS CIP Spray Ball – for more info including a video of the spray ball in action.  I got that idea from HBF Reader Chris.  See his comments below.

HBF Reader Chris Says…

By the way, I bought the rotating version of this spray ball with the idea of mounting it on my Mark II keg cleaner [HBF Review]. It works great! It can’t fit inside my glass carboys, but it fits inside my plastic carboys, buckets, kegs, etc, and it rotates around while spraying. I feel like this is a good upgrade for the Mark II keg cleaner because otherwise it just sprays up and sometimes doesn’t get all the nooks and crannies as efficiently as it could.

Of course, you could also install these in larger vessels for Clean in Place/CIP Cleaning.
