So after saving money and squirreling away parts for over a year, I finally started building my new rig. I have thirty something batches in on my old system, and have brewed some great beer on it but it is time to move up in the world here is my old system

So their is very few original ideas on this if any. Thanks to all on the forum who have inspired me and helped me out. I started with 50 feet of 1 1/2" mild steel square tubing and used the horizontal bandsaw at work to cut the 45's. All welding I did with a little hobart mig

Once I got the frame welded up, I started cutting and tacking in diagonal pieces for the kettle support/burner mount

Attachment 62794

I then took some 4" 16 gauge sheet metal I found on the scrap pile/at work and bent them into circles for the heat shield burner mount (PITA)


Attachment 62794

I then tacked some nuts to the burner well and used appropriate bolts to mount the burners/shields to the stand itself. After tons of grinding I went back and added kettle standoffs and my panel mount

I then started on the panel, the encolsure and switches are from pioneer

Attachment 62803

breaker, two auber pid's and their deluxe probes, nema twist lock pump connections. My jigsaw made a mess of the paint, so I'll be refinishing it soon

Attachment 62802

Gonna use honeywell hot surface ignition with a robert shaw valve on the hlt burner, and eventually the boil burner, but it isn't in the budget for now


Her it is as of now, should have it painted and gas plumbed soon...stay tuned....
