On second thought don't reply to that....

Lets see a few more pics of a totally sweet brew stand.

Easy now, let's not turn this thread into an argument.

Cheers!



My second March 809 came in and I mounted it in place of that old Teel pump I had on the left. Next up is adding the removable control panel arm!

I'm really hoping to brew a batch on it this weekend.

Did you get your casters from sescasterco on ebay?
If you're still thinking about what to do for the removable control panel arm, then check out what I just bought for mine: PC Monitor Stand/Arm

Thanks for the idea, but I just got done building the arm. Pictures tomorrow.

Here's the control arm. I wanted to keep it simple, small, and easily removable to be stored down below with the kettles. The control panel slips on/off the control arm to store in the house when not in use. I used 5/16" SS round rod, some 3/8" ID SS round tubing, and 2 SS washers. I plan to use velcrow straps to hold the wires against the control arm during brew days.











Fire...

Ok, the system is done. The final tally is in. You may see that some items like a wort chiller, SS false bottom, etc are not listed. This is because I already had those. Some parts are bundled together (e.g. electronics) because the receipts weren't very descriptive (or I was too lazy to list everything out).



If you have any questions about a specific part, feel free to ask away. Thanks everyone for the kind words, and for following my brutus build. It's been really fun, and I can't wait to make beer on it this Saturday.

Cheers!
