I just emailed John Blichmann and the burners will not be available until spring. Likely April.

they are using t-slot. and i bet its not stainless but alum. you can do allot of neat stuff with t-slot. including making your own cnc router. allows for easy and quick adjustments and super easy to square off. that was why i posted the link to the 8020 store on ebay. if anyone wanted to try their hand at something like this.

I guess I'll hold my thoughts until I see the final pricing. At first glance, it doesn't really look that desirable. But if it ends up being $150 bux or so, it might not be that bad.

I've never used the t-track material (that size anyway), but is it just 4 t-slot bolts with a nut that is holding 10-13 gallons of hot wort "up"?? Also, with the gas ports on the burners sticking out, you'll have a hard time routing the gas lines "gracefully". Oh, and what about some wheels....

Oops, I said I wasn't going to saying anything yet...

I'll guess this will run at least 3 bills.

As luck would have it, I received an email with a bit more info on this.

Stand $ 499 The way I read it is that is just the stand, the burners and everything else is an option.


There is a breakdown on each item needed for the system. It would quickly add up.

I am currently designeing and building a similar teired brew stand. It is made entirely of t-slot and I did not get it from fleabay because they are selling used, hacked up pieces for full price. Mine is the same design just different legs and feet, my shelves/burners will also be more cleanly built, not so square and sharp. I will post pics soon...

Is that Minitec t-slot or 8020?
