I have seen an eherms set up and really liked it. It was small and easy to set up.. Direct fire seems a bit harder to keep temp where u want. And I am welding an end cap with a drilled hole and a nut welded on. So than I will just screw the wheel on...

Nice. Are you using scrap for the caster mounts or ordering them? I have thought about eherms since you mentioned it. I like the concept but i already have purchased the equipment for direct fire mash. But I will definitely upgrade to herms coil in the HLT in the distant future, it would be easy to just add a coil to the inside of the HLT and then control mash temp by recirculating it through that coil and just control the HLT water temp.
