Default Starting My New Single Tier Brew Stand

So I have been on HBT for about a year now, moslty just reading and learning. Well i have now decided to make a new single tier brew stand. I modeled mine from the one that Robert A. Haskell made. Brewery Construction dot com. I decided i didnt want the second higher tier. Maybe i can use just one pump, or get 2 when needed. So anyway here are some pictures of what I Did today. Hope they upload ok.

I just put castors on the bottom, and did a test area to see if I liked the stain color i chose. cant wait to keep working away on it

I used the designs from this page for the frame.

http://www.breweryconstructionguide.com/frame.html

and I just made both sides the same, instead of making the higher platform.

Im not totally sure how am I going to put the rims tube into the rotation though. I still have more reading on which PID to get, as well as how and where I will put the thromcouple in. It seems to be comming together well. After I finish my second coat of stain and a coat of poly, I will run cpvc piping along the backside with ball valves, to allow me to fill my tanks with them. I will just connect my garden hose to the back piping and have a water source for the brew.

I am also using a piece of flat steel across the left and right sections to hopefully mount the burners to, then i will wrap some aluminum sheets around the interior of the left and right sections to prevent any scorching of the wood.

Default need to get back at it

So its been awhile since i have posted or worked on my brew rig. Well I am finally itching to get back into homebrewing.

For now Ill add some pictures I have taken.

I still have a few more details to iron out.
Im still undecided on some of my liquid movement, but I think I may have decided on what to do.

Im going to add in a second pump to pump rinse water over the grains after the mash is done.

I have the first pump moving the flow of wort during the mash then I will use that pump to fill the boil kettle.
