Just for the hell of it.....and because i am bored, here's a pic of the beer's final resting place. I am so glad I did all of these builds to "save" money. I will probably break even in about 17 years.

Update: Three successful batches so far and have my brew day/"system" down already. Hit my gravity of 1.060 dead on the money on yesterday's batch. Still no issues with CO or the likes. Built a counter-flow chiller as my latest bell and whistle. Highly recommend it if you don't currently use one. Used a suggestion from a friend and followed the steps on a Youtube video for the build of the chiller. If you have been thinking about doing it, bite the bullet and just do it. You will not regret it, I promise.

I forgot to add that when I made this stand I installed some "L" shaped angle steel for the full length to keep the flame/pots off the perforated angle iron and the iron still looks perfect (not faded and "crispy") unlike some similar stands. It was fairly cheap, simple to add on, and acts as a very good burner grate.

One more quick suggestion for a very cost effective pump cover.....I just took a piece of 4" duct and cut it to fit the full length of the pump with a couple inches of overhang and then squeezed it to about 3" to create some tension then just slipped it over the pump. It holds on tight, it has not moved at all and most importantly it keeps the pumps dry.
