Hi, BB. I ama relatively new home brewer and love your rig. But, I'm debating on the relative value of buying a rig or making one like you did - custom and all. Can you share how much dough you have in the brew stand, including the welder (Ive never welded before, but I'm handy) and other tools? I have my pumps, burners, kegs, quick-cam locks, tubing thermometers, etc (thanks, Bobby from NJ). I'm trying to talk my wife into this for my upcoming birthday and would rather get it than spend weeks shopping for parts, etc. Was it worth it for you? Brew on!
