I'm using converted Sanke Kegs so I don't think they will seal like flat bottom pots will they? I was going to test the burners so I'll be sure to pay special attention to how well they seem to be breathing. I'll also check the forum for posts related to burner installation and efficiency.

Note to self... BBQ Black and Satin Black are NOT the same color.





One more coat of the right color paint and I'll be ready to install the burners and figure out how to run the gas plumbing.

I recommend a tippy dump for the MLT, i'm sooo thankful that i added mine (and so does my back).

I second the venting comments above. If you're using keggles then you can cut holes in the skirt to do the same. Otherwise a good quantity of hot gasses will go "around" instead of hitting the keggle directly, you'll see evidence of this when your frame heats up (instead of the vessel). After cutting vent holes my boil times went down and i saved $ on propane.

Default My First Brew Stand - an open exchange of thoughts and ideas

I like to brew with friends so it was important that I be able to transport my brew stand. Here is the really cool solution to that challenge my friend helping me build came up with.



The transport rig on the back of my truck.



Wheel the stand up...



Tip it up...



Lift...



And lock...



Let's go brew something!

I think I'll put him to work on the tippy-dump next.

A buddy in my brew club has a gravity type stand, with 2 wheels and a receiver hitch bar added to the construction.
Slips into the receiver, put in the pin, and haul ass!
He's not gentle in the handling of it, and has done over 400 batches on his setup.

I like your transport setup!
