A little slow going this last week but I got a little done. I have ground down the welds and painted the stand, still going to do another 1 or 2 coats. Got a whole bunch of stuff from bobby, and now I'm just waiting on the burners. I also got the aquarium controllers but am unable to find the wiring diagram for my side-by-side. The kick plate in front is gone and the interwebz is unhelpful. Should hopefully get more done this weekend, getting anxious to brew on this stand.

Also on the burners they have pilot lights built into them, it kinda looks like one of the jets but I am trying to plan for upgrades down the road. Thanks for the ideas.

Looking good!
I really enjoyed building my stand last summer, almost as much as I enjoy using it. Keep up the great work.

I have been slacking, no updates in almost two months.

Anyways, I have all the liquid plumbing done and did a wet run with the pumps, they work great. I used a CIP ball for my sparge arm and I was concerned about the pumps being able to put enough pressure through to spin it. It also worked great. I decided to mount the pumps horizontally due to the three way ball valve on the IN port, I was concerned liquid would not be able to work its way up. All of the fittings are good and leak free (whirlpool, pickup, sightglass, and thermowell). I also got the casters on and now I just need to get the NG lines ran and the burners hooked up. I didnt take into account how heavy these jet burners are, and as a result I didnt weld any braces to the stand for them. I need to figure out how to do that and the height...hopefully that does not take me another 2 months.
