Default My Angle Iron Single Tier Brewstand Build

Starting on my single tier brewstand, thought I would start a build thread. The goal was to build a simple single tier with quality components but keep the cost to a minimum. I batch sparge so I am debating whether or not to go with one pump or two.

So I got the stand built by a local welder as a Christmas present, total cost to me $0, cost to family $185.

Here is the design plans.

And the finished product.


Ordered 3 BG10 burners from Bayou Classic.



Bought the piping for the gas manifold at Lowes: $72.85

Here is the parts list so far, will try to keep it updated as I go for others who wish to build something similar.

Brew Stand (1.5" Angle Iron): $185
BG10 Burners x 3: $48
30 PSI Regulator (Bayou): $32
Gas Manifold Parts
3/4" Pipe Strap: $2.23
1/2" x 8" Black Iron x6: $13.44
1/2" HD Gas Ball Valve x3: $26.10
1/2" Pipe Tee x 3: $5.07
1/2" x 2" Black Iron x 6: $5.64
1/2" FIPT Valve to 3/8" Flare: $7.58
1/2" Black Iron 90* Elbow x 3: $3.60
1/2" Black Iron Coupler x2: $2.32
1/2" Black Iron Cap: $1.03
More Beer 1/8" x 1" Jet x3: $14.85
More Beer 1/8" to 1/2" Adapter x3: $4.50
BrewHardware Thermo Sight Glass: $44.99
BrewHardware Sight Glass: $26.95
BrewHardware Heat Shields: $9.00
Bargain Fittings Weldless Valve x3: $66.00
Bargain Fittings Weldless Bulkhead x2: $22.00
Bargain Fittings 90* Elbow x2: $8.00
Two used Sanke Kegs: $40.00
Running Total: $534.00

Still need to order hoses, pumps and decide on a chiller. Any comments or suggestions are definitely welcome. Thanks to all the great homebrewers on here that I have gotten inspiration and ideas from.

Looking good, Tally. I'm building mine out of old queen-size bed frames. I bought a bunch of them at a quasi-yard sale when an old motel was being renovated.

Learning to weld has become quite the additional benefit!

Update:

Been swamped at work but started collecting more Sankes to convert (gotta love living in a college town!).


Ordered bulkheads and valves from Bargain Fittings and sight glasses from Brew Hardware.



Also decided to make a hop spider to simplify the filtering without spending a lot of money. Bought a stainless sugar container from Publix for $5 and cut the bottom off (sloppily) with my cutoff wheel. Then added legs and hardware from Lowes. Less than $20 invested.



Maybe tomorrow I'll start cutting the top off the third keg and drill some holes for the fittings. Still need pemanently mount the manifold, don't think the zipties will last long under heat.

Sorry for the slow process, took a new job and moved at the end of January so that really slowed the work. Have drilled all the holes in the kegs except the two return fittings at the top of the MLT and BK.

Ok. Finally got around to working on the brewstand again. Ordered some diptubes from Brewhardware.com (thanks BobbyM!) and returned the PICO style false bottom for a 15" Jaybird false bottom. Also got a 10" false bottom from Adventures in Homebrewing for the boil kettle.

As it sits it is capable of making beer with my immersion chiller, but I want to get a CFC or plate chiller and also make a control panel for temperature control.

Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics but its all I got at the moment. Will take more pics later.
