Default Brewstand Manufacturers

Hi all,

I'm looking to compile a list of brewstand manufactures. I'm finally in the market for a brewstand and want to view all my possible options. I've already looked at:

Blichmann
More Beer
Ruby Street
Brewstands.com
Better Brew Stand
Brewers Equipment
Brew Magic
Bad Ass Brewstands
Brewtree.com

Is there any that I am omitting?

Thanks,
Scott

Mentioned with "Bad Ass Brewstands"

I'll be looking at them when I'm actually ready for a stand...

Thanks for compiling this list.

Heh I compiled this same list a while back. Settled on Kurt (OneHoppyGuy) with BrewSteel.com (Bad Ass Brewstands). He's fast with responses, has good practical advice, good prices... and he's five miles from me.

I set up a homebrew "tasting" tomorrow with friends and coworkers to "motivate" them to contribute $ to the cause . Wish me luck!!

Pick up a cheap used MIG and teach yourself. It's not too hard.

Thanks everyone for their input. The decision looks to be a difficult one.

This may seem like a silly question...but is it similar (somewhat) to soldering? I consider myself to be a handy person, but I cannot solder to save my life.

I have an unreliable Uncle who knows how to weld. I was thinking about asking him to if he could manage the Brutus Ten. The obvious problem here is getting him to follow through on a commitment.

Is it cost efficient/worth the effort to build a stand (with a reliable welder)?
