Yep, me again,

I was reading about how it's hard to roll those hoses up when it's cold... Have you found this to be a problem? Last thing I want is 25ft of hose that I can't get to stay in place because it won't bend in the cold. Space in my garage is getting to be tight with all this brewing gear!

Thanks again!

I read that too but did not notice it one bit. I brewed 2 weeks ago and it was about 50 in the garage when I finished up and it rolled right up in a 18" diameter roll. I'll see how it goes in 40 or 30 deg weather.

This might be a dumb question, but what are you cutting the strut with? An angle grinder?

Although not "recommended", I used a basic compound mitre saw with a cutoff wheel I bought at harbor freight. They say for extended life of the saw its not a great idea, but for 20 cuts it wasn't bad. One $2.50 metal cutoff wheel did the whole job.

What fittings did you use for attaching the castors to the stand?

Thanks,

Thanks skunker & nmfree. I found it in the electrical department at HD, just where you said it would be. Thanks!

He used 90 degree connectors with one long-one short leg. The castor is screwed to the short leg. This assembly is placed under the strut leg. Then the long leg is bolted to the strut channel. It will work great. Mark

Just went to HD and bought all kinds of different sizes of 1/2" pipe (3", 4", 6", 10") because you can just return what you don't use. I then just pieced it until I hit the right heights. Used pipe dope or the yellow gas pipe tape and crank it down good with a pipe wrench. One of the easier parts of the build.
Can you tell me about the regulator? Is that a special regulator required for thos burners?

I always thought a regulator wasn't required for NG, because there is alredy one on the meter.
