Very nice work

BTW, you have inspired me, my pop has a shop and can help with the welding and I can't wait.

I like the idea of having long legs as well, once again good job- way to stick it to the man!

Actually, since the kegs are concave on the bottom, the flame spreads out all around. I hope it won't be a problem. If it is, I can hang them lower.

All right! Just come up with a good, solid design based on the materials you're using and the setup you want, and putting it together will be easier than you think. I actually enjoyed the welding. It kind of geeked me out since it was my first time. Hopefully your pop has 2 welding masks so you can watch. I think that would've helped me.

Yeah, that was the main reason I went with this design. I like how it really doesn't take up that much room. It should fit in my garage in front of the cars (once I move some other stuff).

Looks Great!

I haven't gone shopping yet for all the burners and gas lines for mine yet. Where did you get the flex gas lines from? I intended on buying my burners from this place:

One came with my turkey fryer. The others are 4' and I got them for $10 ea. locally. There were several places in town that sold them. The ones I got had the flare fittings on one end and 1/4" threads on the other. Some of the others would've required the flare adapter I couldn't find! Look around at the propane/gas places. They should be fairly easy to find. At one time I even think I saw them at Lowes or HD, but they were out when I went to put everything together.

I did my first brew on the stand today. Easiest brew day EVER! I love this thing.

Unfortunately, the day ended with 10 gal of Fat Tire being poured out (see here: http://www.homebrewtalk.com/showthre...796#post223796)

Sorry to hear it, man.

Guess you just have to stick to whole leaf and plug hops.

I used those burners and they work great - they get a boil going in no time.
