Default Another Single Tier brew stand build.

After seeing many brew stands on here I have decided to build mine. Thanks to SouthernYankees Brew stand build postings for helping me with my build.

I had helped my dad build a ladder rack for a pickup truck that he owned years back. It was made with 1 1/2 square tubing. He had it sitting out back collecting dust (i mean rust). He had also bought more tubing to enlarge it to fit his new truck. But after telling him that i wanted to build a brew stand and that i needed square tubing. He told me that if I wanted the old ladder rack i could use it for my stand. what he didn't know is that i would also be using some of the new steel and all his mig wire and electric to do the build.

I got two banjo burners from the internet for a little over $40. A friend from my home brew club made the rings for me for some home brew. home depot was the source for the propane plumbing, mig wire, and screws to hold the banjo burner in place (the burners were taped for a 6mm screw).

going to order two march pumps, and quick disconnects.

the ladder rack in question.

the ladder heading for a new life.

starting to shape up.

looking like something now.

end of day one.

How's the build going? Any more pics to post? If you don't mind I like to use your stand to get some ideas for my own.

another day.
making the mounting rings



burner opening


installing the burners


propane plumbing




another look at the plumbing


It is alive.... I have to get a bottom shelf made but the burners do work. I am up grading the shut off valves to needle valves and the pumps should be in.



If you are thinking how is the pipe attached to the frame. I tack welded it to the inside of the frame and when the bottom shelf is installed you will not see it and it is better protected that way.

Keep the shutoff valves, and place the needle valves right after them. That way you can dial-in the pressure you like to the burner with the needle valve, and open and shut flow to it quickly with the ball valve.

Prost!

I'm constantly impressed by the mechanical skills you guys have to throw this stuff together in your garage/workshops.

Could you post a parts list for the steel? I have a neighbor with an old rack also that I can cut from. BTW, it's coming out awsome! I really like the strength of it and the wind deflectors.

Thanks Pubwilson. I used 1 1/2 square tubing and i got the plans from Southernyankee's thread http://www.homebrewtalk.com/f51/welding-101-fun-brutus-build-164749/
I used 1/8" steel to make the wind shields.
hope this helps.

Cool. Thanks for that list. What size is the space (opening) between the pots? I like the idea of a space so things won't be as cramped.
