Default My Brew Stand Build

Well I finally got around to starting a proper brew stand. I decided on some angle steel for my stand. Did a bunch of work this weekend and got the basic frame built and will be working on it more as time and money allows. Heres what I have so far.

old brew stand:


New stand progress:





Will update as more progress is made.

So far so good! Look forward to seeing the build develop.

Wish I could weld, I'd love to build myself an official stand. I'm just using a wood platform now, that raises the burner stands just high enough to run down to the pump. It'll work for now.

BTW, how is that Bourbon Barrel Old Engine Oil tasting? I tried OEO for the first time a few weeks ago and fell in love! Definitely on the list to brew soon!

The welding was done by my brother. I can weld a little but hes much better so I had him do it.

The Beer is tasting great!! Came out just how I wanted it to. I figured this isnt gunna be a session beer so I bottled it up in some belgian bottles and corked them. Really happy with the results.

Hopefully I'll be making one like this soon. Getting a welder from my uncle this weekend. Guess I'm going to have lean how to weld. I did a little in college, but that was 15yrs ago.

Well did a little more work on the brew stand today. Got some casters for it and welded on some tabs to keep the pots from falling off accidentally. Here are some updated pics of where I'm at so far.

Very nice! You still going to use the cooler for MLT? Is the space between the burners wide enough so you dont melt the cooler?

I plan to use the cooler for a little bit longer. Not ready to drop the coin on another keggle and rims setup just yet. I believe it should be ok. I'm you going to space it up a bit and use some wood to keep it off the metal.
