Default Fired up for a test run!

Everything fired up and worked great! I did a test batch on Tuesday and it went very smooth.

All that's left is to add a counterflow chiller to the far left side and a little more kettle work.

We're installing a tangential inlet on the BK for whirlpooling, HERMS coil in the HLT, and some other inlet fittings on the HLT and MLT for recirculating. Everything will be fit with cam-locks.

More pictures to come in the next week on all that!

Default wind shields

did you get rid of the wind shields when you switched burner types?

Yes, we did. The 10" banjo burners don't seem to have any issues without them. We were also worried about the standing pilot lights blowing out without the shields, but with the kettles on there, it does quite well.

I actually dig the conduit the way you did it and may steal some of it for my stand that I'm building. Do you have any issue with the conduit flexing or connectors loosening with the control panel as you swing it in?

Very nice!
I bought 95% of the stuff to build mine but am struggling to find the time to actually do it. Yet every time I brew I keep telling myself "I really need to get my stand going!"

Honestly I wasn't a fan of the conduit at first, but it's growing on me. Now that I've seen how functional it is and how easy it will be to add on things later/fix things, I'm sold. I'm pretty anal about clean lines and I really wanted this stand to scream "simplicity".

I haven't noticed anything loosening up when I swing the panel. I was more worried about heat with it being that close (no problems yet).

I bought the pieces as I went along, part of why it took so long to finish. If I were to do it again, I'd buy everything at once and build all in one shot. You'll love a stand though!

Very Nice! The only issue you might run into is the banjo's burning the paint off a little where the attach, but that's minimal!

Great Job and I dig the panel!

This stand is one of the better one's I've seen on the forum in my last few days of reading through build threads!

If you don't mind me asking, could you PM me info on where you got the tubing and cost? Haven't found any pricing info online from some of the portland area metal shops and have been too lazy to call around yet as it is just an idea at this point.
