That looks pretty quirky, never seen a boiler built like that before, I like it :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Running on gas, almost no point in polishing her up, she'll just get dirty again anyways lol.

Is that an inline thumper?

Well done Bigcam, that looks awesome :clap: . I'd love to know more, especially the thumper. Is it the old keg chopped down? What's in the guts of it? How does it run? I need more. more.

Well and truly thinking outside the box love it :handgestures-thumbupleft: Is the bottom bit thats teed to the keg also a thumper or is it there for increased capacity? How do you have the thumper setup? Is it a bubble cap or some other setup?

That's a work of art mate. Very industrial. I think calling it a Frankenstill would be a travesty.

Cheers,
