Default Weldless brew stand.

Copied from Sam Scott's Wallace.

I'm calling mine the Popeye. You can't see it, but all three burners are lit. I plan to add a Brutus style control panel eventually, but time is tight and I didn't want to wait until the fall to get it going.

It's galvanized steel and it will rust eventually, but the sections are easy to replace.

its probably cheaper to replace one section at a time, but you could always powder coat it, but that would probably cost more than the stand itself. my stand is welded, so i can't swap out sections at a time, so when it came time to consider steel + powdercoat or stainless, it worked out to be the same price.

power to you brotha. take more pics as you go along. the cool thing about your stand is that you can change it around at any given time. nice!

I did not know that there was an "erecter set" brew stand! Nice build.

Cool, I'd bet you would get better use of the heat if you lower the burners an inch or two.

That's what everyone calls it.

Yes. I had to buy the entire Hurricane burner stove with stand so I lopped of the top and bottom frame with an angle grinder and I kept the rings for wind guards. I plan to remount the burners about 2" lower with the wind shields, but I need to pick up a couple of pieces of slotted steel and chop it up.

How sturdy is this stand? I was planning on making a wood stand similar to Scuba Steve's setup, but this looks like a very interesting weldless option... Is she pretty solid? Any warping or sagging from the combination of heat and the filled kegs? Have you considered painting the frame with that high temp spray paint? VERY COOL!!!!

I've got something similar--mine is a 2-tier, with 2 burners (I use a cooler for a mash tun). It's also angle-iron, galvanized... I made an extra "shelf" to mount the burners (same kind as yours) a little lower. I also hit mine with the black hi-temp BBQ paint; seems to be working fine so far. Mine "lives" outside on the back porch, exposed to the weather; the spots that I missed with the paint haven't begun to rust yet, and it's been out back for 3 years or so now... Looks good! Now, get to brewing!
