Default My brutus ten

Here is the start of my Brutus ten. Trying to stay pretty close to the original. Made with same size tubing but not stainless due to price. I plan on powder coating it once it's completely mocked up. Should be just as durable and cleanable. Let me know what you think so far.

The powder coating will burn off around the burners. Frame routed gas is a bad idea. Otherwise, the stand looks great.

Thanks for your input. I don't understand why using the rear frame section is a bad idea? Please enlighten me.

The frame is not designed or rated for gas. It's not safe. Unlike other elements of home brewing, gas is not the place to cut corners. As great as Lonnie's Brutus design was a great gift to the brewing community, his gas beam was not. Instead, it created a lot of very unsafe brew stands.

The wall thickness of The pipe is well within limits to handle the low pressure it will be handling. I pressure tested it up To 160 psi with no issues. It will not exceed 30 psi with propane. Thank you for your concern but I believe this is a non issue. I deal with these things professionally so I think I will be fine

So, as a professional you are allowed to use square tubing for gas supply?

Yep. I am done arguing with you. If you do not like my stand than please don't post. Sick of dealing with keyboard commandos...one reason I do not post much. Has Lonnie's stand blown up on him?

I'm not a keyboard commando. I am curious though what type of work that you do that allows you to use square tube for gas. Answer me and prove me wrong. I have no problem admitting that I have made a mistake. Please educate me.
You may be able to build a 'safe' frame, but how many will copy the design that won't? It only takes one.

I feel no need to answer to you. I don't care what you think nor feel the need to be "right" or "wrong". I am confident in my stand. It does not leak. I will not explode. Thus, I feel no need to argue with you over the use of square or round pipe. Its not relevent. You said it yourself "You may be able to build a 'safe' frame, but how many will copy the design that won't? It only takes one." I don't care if some one copies my design. Its basically Lonnie's design up to this point so if by any chance some one that didn't know what they were doing decided to take this task on I would sleep just fine knowing it had nothing to do with me. I see you sell your own version of stands...are you just butt hurt that you didn't get a sale from me?

I would just like to say there is a reason to use black pipe and FWIW you "DID" ask what everyone thought about your stand.....
