Default My Weldless Brew Stand

Well I got inspired by the great posts here and elsewhere on the internet and took the dive into making my own brew stand.

I don't have a lot of experience with building things but figured I could handle a weldless stand.

I bought 12 5 foot sections from McMaster and then a friend helped custom fab some corner bracket for me to hold the Keggles.

I went with a two tier system so I can utilize gravity to drain the mash tun into the boil kettle, and not have to deal with two pumps.

Here are some pictures

Very cool looking build!

I'm concerned about the gas isolation valve... it doesn't look "correct" for the application. Where did you find it? Most gas isolation valve are ball valves from what I've seen... then again... I could be completely off the mark! ;-)

The one in the last picture? It is a needle valve, specifically built for an application such as this. It allows for finer control than ball valves. Found them at Ace Hardware in the gas plumbing section.

Cool man! Just as long as they are designed for gas. And I bet you can really dial it in as it's a needle valve! :-)
