Thanks! I may do that this week.

Just drooled my way through this whole thread.

Anyone in Chicagoland who has made this stand, is there any chance you'd let a nerd come over and see it in person? I'm sort of between DIY and buying something prefab. I was going to start all grain in May, and was thinking of getting a bunch of cinder blocks to start out building up heights at first. But then... I ... would... own... and move... lots of cinder... blocks...

This stand is quick and easy to build. The frame itself is very inexpensive, as you can see.

However, all the other hardware and components that go on it can nickle & dime you to death! Just be warned! LOL!

But, I love my weldless stand!

Got the parts this week, cut and bolted everything together this afternoon. Used my 18v lithium Ryobi miter saw and cutting disks, worked fine. I'm making mine a tad taller, to accomodate my two Blichmann burners on the extended legs, and a full 6' long. I think I'm going to christen mine "Barney", in honor of Homer Simpson's best friend / drinking buddy.

Going to Brew School tomorrow all day at The Draught House / Big Dog's in North Las Vegas, so nothing else until Sunday.

You might want to put in cross braces or some extra casters in the middle

Finished up just as it was getting dark. Still have a lot to do, plumb for natural gas, mount pumps and RIMS tube, control box, another keg to cut, etc.

I'll try to take some pictures on Sunday.

I'll also post it on my blog.

Update 04/07/12:

Took a quick picture:

Default Got a little more done this A.M.

Added another set of casters, added brackets for my bottom-drain mash tun, put burners in place and put HLT (temporary, I have another keg I'm going to transform), MLT, and keggle on it to see if everything works so far. Pumps will go in center bottom section, RIMS tube in center middle, NG pipe along the bottom. So far, so good...
