Thanks! Simple and functional is all I need right now...

I also just discovered that, according to their literature, this particular type of galvanizing from Superstrut is paintable. They call it GoldGalv and say it acts as a primer. Might have to come up with some over the top, obnoxious paint scheme.

The cashier at Lowes thought that Superstrut would be a good beer name. Superstrut Imperial Red??? "I'll take a S.I.R, please."

does anyone have a Google SketchUp file for their single-tier build that they would be willing to share?

i'm just starting the planning phase of my rig and was hoping to take inspiration for others' work. still learning sketchup, so far so good...

thanks!

Drinking: a belgian pale ale, a belgian imperial stout, an Epic 09.09.09 clone, a brett'ed saison
Carbing: a hop-bursted APA, a citra farmhouse
Fermenting: an abbey ale (to be soured)
Aging: an oud bruin, a BDSA/Dubbel thingy, a soured fruit saison, my "wild oats" brett/sour, a saison with a brett mix added at bottling.
Up next: TBD, probably not brewing again until july.

again, that would be awesome. it's always easier to edit something that is there, rather than starting from scratch. thanks!

OK - this thread is starting to drive me nuts. It's been 3-weeks and I haven't ordered anything besides a pump.

Everytime I sit down to put together my parts list I see someone else's build and think 'That's exactly what I want!'. Then I have to start all over again. I've gone from a 2-tier, to a 1-tier, and back to a 2-tier. I've switched from propane to NG twice. I've gone from 7-tips to 23-tips to 10-tips on my NG burners. Now I'm stuck on powder coat vs. no powder coat. When I finally get this thing worked out it's going to look like it was cobbled together by Dr. Frankenstein, it'll weigh 1,800 lbs, and I'll have to take out a second mortgage to pay for it.

Can there please be a 24 hr period with no new pictures? That's all the time I need. Or at least post a few crappy builds so I won't want to copy them.
