I look forward to the photos. I just used a 25% off coupon at Harbor Freight to buy an electric winch that I'm going to mount to the ceiling in my garage. I'll just roll my burner stand under it to lift the inner mash tun.

new burner mounts, with windscreen. grill/ grate and windscreen are removable to easily adjust burner height.

regarding the grill / grate, I went with that style set up to be able to use different pots easily, that way i can do different size batches, or even use it as a turkey fryer around the holidays, or it could be a campfire stove should it need to be.

The rotating hoist mount is crucial. Just slide another container in place and lower the spent grains. BTW, that is very nice work. Are you doing the welding?

my neighbor at work is doing most of the welding, he's been teaching me how to weld, but my welds still look horrible.

this rotating hoist seems so much nicer than my previous version, sturdy as can be, and rotates so smooth.

Is that solid round bar for the grate, or pipe? If solid, that stand has got to weigh a LOT!

just did a test run ( no grain ) of new stand, it performed excellent. it took 31minutes to take the water from 72 degrees to 152, let it sit for an hour and I only lost 2 degrees, then it took another 34 minutes to take it to a boil, all in all, it looks like I should have a time savings of almost an hour from start to finish. my last stand had way to much heat transfer to the stand, took forever to take it from 152 to a boil.
