Looks good, but I think I'd put some kind of cross bracing in there. It looks possible for it to bend when all three kegs are full.
Good luck on your first brew with it. I hope to join you in single tier brewing next month when all the parts for my eHerm are finally here.

Thanks!
I am going to be lowering the height by 8" and will consider a cross brace. It is welded bed frames and is pretty solid, better safe than sorry. It is functional but no way complete.

SALUTE!

Better to cross brace it, or at least gusset it now, then to repair it later.
