Default Universal rolling base

I made a rolling base, just a board with 4 casters. This is a big project, BIG I say!! JK. I have found this to be a handy tool around the brewery. I use 1/2bbls sankes as fermenters and serving kegs and it makes them so easy to move. When I clean out the MLT, AKA 55 lbs of wet grain, I roll it out to the trash can; my back thanks me. If you get a chance find some big locking casters and make on of these up. You want locking casters, so you're not chasing it around holding a keg. It is just a handy tool to have around IMHO.

If your moving grains, tanks, anything. Movers use something like this.

I need one! I have a 2'x3' table with casters that I use for dang near everything. A short one would be handy.

I scored one of these at Harbor Freight:

I attached a rope and handle to the hand grip portion of the dolly and just roll my fermenter full of wort to the keezer in the garage, hoist 'er up and lower it in .... no heavy lifting for this old man!
