Well I am Like 95% done with the structural building. I just a few thinks left to test (gas leaks, add hooks, ext.) . I think its over engineered for what it does. There is just over 22inch of "lift" so i will have no problem with filling 6.5 gallon carboys. I think the HLT is just low enough i can reach up and dump water into it with out the use of a stool. I'm going to do a few brews with it, then give it a paint this summer. I'm holding off on the paint for right now because i might do some more welding/modifying, its also still kinda cold here.

I am going to mod up some Z brackets for the casters, that was a really good idea.
This is at its full lifting height. 22inch from ground!
This is with the lifting bar pulled back. This is what i will do when i'm boiling so the bar is not in the way. I car move it forward after the wort is cool and its time to fill up the fermenters.
how i mounted the gas lines.
