Started the software for this build and here's a screenshot of the front panel of the GUI. The pipes and pumps are blue when not in use and turn yellow when
they are being used. The burners show flames when they are on also. I was told by the welder that my stand will be ready to be picked up on Monday. Woohoo!
I will post a pic of it when I get it. I am also doing a semi polish job on my keggles and will post a pic when they are done. I still need some parts for the gas portion
of this build and some parts for the piping of the keggles.

OK, started maching up the plumbing and pump locations etc. I got all the welding done except for the last burner.
So far only have 5 of the 6 casters on it due to the home depot ran out of them. The next step will be to finish the
plumbing mach up so I can tear it down and paint it. Here's a picture of the progress so far.

Here's an updated view of the software. As you can see, the pipes change color when showing the flow of the liquid and the burners shut on and off to indicate flame is on.

So far I have most of the piping done for this rig. I also made some home made sight glasses and have to say they look good. I will be mounting them after I polish the keggles. I have a piece of diamond plate coming for the bottom shelf on this thing. It should be here monday. I will be ordering the other pumps by this friday hopefully. I will post more pictures as this progresses along. Here's a picture.

Ordered the pumps and they should be here by Tuesday. Received the acrylic pipe and made my new and improved sight glasses. Here's a picture (thanks to my lovely wife for modeling it for me). All total they only cost me a fraction of buying just one on the internet. I picked up the rest of the materials at lowes when we were down in the valley to finish the polishing projects so I guess I will be polishing for a few days! When the pumps arrive and I get them installed i will post another picture of the progress.

Was checking out this hop basket for my cooker to keep my BK pump etc. clean. Has anyone every used one? Would like some peoples opinion on this thing before I commit to buying.
