Right then, you're doomed like the rest of us
To be honest it didn't look like stainless but cell phone shots suck at detail.

I'm hoping the stainless steel wind/heat shields on my stand will preserve the VHT on the frame but confidence is not very high...

Cheers!

Ya I'll post a better shot tomorrow. Gonna drill and mount the casters so I can stop having to lug this thing around. If only I could get a day over 0 degrees I'd be more motivated to get something done...

I want to order the burners today. I'm thinking LP BG-14's for the HLT and the BK. Any other suggestions before I do? Will the BG-14 converted to LP be enough to get a good boil on a 10 gallon batch? Also... Decided to skip the RIMS and go HERMS which should only require two burners the way I'm going to do it. One for HLT and one for BK using two pumps. Let me know what you think on the burners before I pull the trigger.

The high temp paint works fine, but the top of the stand will get marred over time, simply due to moving the kettles on and off. The paint on the top will cure after a brew session, or just heating some water in a kettle to get the paint up to 600°. It will get that hot, by the way, so tell people to be careful not to touch it while your brewing.

I've had no paint chip off my stand, only wear a bit where the kettles sit. After I cured the top of my frame, I added a few more coats of paint and heated the same way. I even sprayed some on while it was hot. Worked fine for me.

or just make heat shields that will also protect the stand. this is what I did and havne't had any paint even discolor, and the high temp paint on the heat sheilds still hasn't burnt off. I say go ahead and paint it if that's what you want to do.

Got the casters put on and the underside sanded, primed, and painted. After this picture was taken I got the rest of it sanded, primed, and painted as well. All except the top where the heat will be.



This weekend I'll paint the top with high temperature paint and will do a "cure" by putting my burner on low and letting it heat up to cure.
