It's a place called Dock Hardware in Rochester, NY. I would think you could find this at a steel yard though. At the very least they could tell you where to go in your neighborhood.

The extruded aluminum I've dealt with was supplied by Bosch Rexroth. Here's the profiles they have available: http://www13.boschrexroth-us.com/Fra...aspx?Group=101

I think you can order it straight from them if you can't find it locally.

By the way, your build is awesome! Well done!

Thanks. The rig has been a real pleasure to brew on. Still trying to dial in my system, and get AG brewing down. Finally getting there, took a couple of weaker brews to get there though!

Fantastic. Putting it through 2 beers at least tomorrow (supposedly going to hit 55 here tomorrow). It has worked well as both a brew rig and a BBQ stove. Being able to make 10 gal batches, in hindsight I would like a larger MLT to be able to make 10gal of higher gravity beers, but that's easily fixed (just need to talk the wife into more equipment that I told her I would never have to do again). The lack of automation makes it more hands on. But I like that about it.

Only thing I would do over again, probably raise the height of the burner base, so that the pots slide in under it a little easier. The go in there ok, but there is definitely an order and an angle that they have to go in at. The smoker that was made at the same time is also working like a champ. Needs a new coat of paint on the fire box this year, but that's about it. Smoke/brew days are pretty good around here!

It's made by a company called Bosch Rexroth. Here's the link:
