Thanks for all the responses so far. I will be learning to weld as part of this project (taking a class), so I'm going to attempt it all on my own.

For design elements, I think that it may be best to keep the MLT gravity feeding into the BK, but that it is okay to pump the sparge water. If I do that, I can save almost 2 feet in height. I also think I want to gravity drain the BK to fermenter.

I like the folding design as well. I think I may put a folding table on on side, but a permanent table on the other to give a place to put a handle for wheels. I'll try to draw this up and post pictures. Too hard to describe

Not exactly what you are looking for, but when I decided to build mine I also wanted a small footprint. I went with a two vessel batch sparge system that is 100% clean-in-place and 95% dis-assembled using no tools. My brew stand is 48" long by 23" tall by 16" deep. Good luck with your build.

Okay, so I kind of love this design, especially with the control panel placement. I was looking at options for that, and most designs seem to have it hanging off the side or adding to the depth. This center/column placement keeps things very trim.

You haven't had any issues with steam and the electronics?

Thanks!
