Electric Brewstand
 
How many of you built your own stand?

I was thinking of ordering this: Here

They make them big enough to fit 3 keggles and I can't imagine being able to beat their economies of scale building my own or hiring a welder.

I don't yet have one I like- I have one made out of metal shelving. But when I do buy one, I'm going to get one of these:

He makes them for about $300 or so, without the burners for an electric brewery. I can't decide if I want a two-tier, or to add a pump and use a single tier.

I went with this one. Beautiful and sturdy, and not that expensive for all stainless. You can get one with the galv undershelf for cheaper. They will also cut you a deal on shipping. I've not regretted once going with the 6 foot table, it's nice to have extra space on your brew table.

+1 I would go with the stainless steel table. At 6', it's plenty long enough, easier to clean and casters can be added later. It's about the same price as the cart.

I built mine out of wood. It still needs casters and it will be ready to do a test run.

What were the costs to build with wood? What were were your dimensions?

I have a basic stand built out of wood. It is in my signature.

At this point I am devoting more time to controls and some other projects than aesthetics of the brewstand. I do appreciate a well designed and good looking stand, though.

I'll be doing wood. I don't see the need for the extra cost of metal when using electric. I've been collecting 4x4's from work and2x4's from pallets from work so cost will be minimum :D

Psst... just between you and me... When most folks talk about "taking their rig for a test run", they don't really "run" with them. You could probably try brewing on it without the wheels ;)

If I can't ride it down the hill, what good is it?
