Or, you can do like I did and get a sheet of aluminum diamond plate and turn it into a heat shield. I have 2x6s that the burner sits on. It's open right under the burner, but they still got hot enough to smolder. The heat shield should help.
Thanks for the tip, i'll get that done before my next brew day.

If you offset the plate with a few washers or a bolt or two, the heat shield will work better...I have my rubbermaid MLT not too far from my heat shield and its just fine.

Here is my system! It's all direct fire, there is plans to put a RIMS tube on it but for now it's all manual. I also want to put a Bobby M mash tun insulation project on it since the reflective junk is melting if I turn the flame on to high.

cheers!

Kotti, remove the [ url] [ / url] tags from your post and the photo will show up.

Anyone in the Austin area brew with a 3 tier system? I would like to be around the next time you brew if so. I want to learn before I build.... Anyone?

Hey Jason,
Thanks, I wanted a small foot print to save space and by having the mash tun up high I could fly sparge with one pump instead of two. I don't know if that matters so much (batch vs. fly) but at least it's an option. The only problem was getting 20+ lbs of soaked grains down from that height so I built that crane system on the back right corner of it so I can just pick up the tun and swing it out over the side and lower it down slowly with that pulley and a rope breaking system, similar to an ATC used with climbing gear.

cheers!

Here's my humble single tier...got the stand from a member here who was selling it through Rebel Brewer, and I could not be happier with it...All manual, batch sparging at this point, but looking to automate this year.
