This is exactly what I have been using for a year now with no problems. wood has treated me very well and I'm sure you're going to be very happy with your new stand.

That's what I was hoping. I considered metal, but the cost is a bit much for my budget. I'd need to get someone to weld it for me, since I don't have much metal-working expertise. Woodworking I can do myself.

Update:

Since I built this last February, I've brewed 2 different Alt-biers, an Oktoberfest, a Cream Ale, a Bavarian Hefe, and a Honey Brown Ale. I absolutely enjoy brewing using my brew-traption. Love the mobility it provides as well as the organizational aspects of it. On the backside (tall end) I have mounted a water filter and hose setup for filling my HLT. I've also mounted several hooks of various sized to store the various hoses, stirrers, tools, etc. that I use during a typical brew session. One of the most useful items I've built.

Thanks for the followup! I'm thinking of doing something similar to this pretty soon. I'm curious how tall you made each tier, and how tall you are. I'm thinking I would start with the height of my carboy on the ground, then do the BK height right above that, then MLT, etc.

My concern would be stirring the mash. It seems like the top of the MLT would be about chest high, making it a bit difficult.


Thanks!

I have been thinking of doing this for a while. I built mine like yours and am also planning on adding a water filter. How has yours worked for you?

looks a lot like my first brewstand i used two burners. no problems with wood burning at all. just had to use a ladder to fill hot liquor tank. thats why i made a single tier, i don't like ladders

This stand is very similar to mine. Instead of using the cement board under the burner, I used mine as a shield between the first and second levels. It is simply screwed into the 2x4 uprights. Another suggestion would be to affix a sheet of 1/4" plywood to one side of the stand. The plywood then provides a place to hang spoons, mash paddles etc when they are not in use.

Nice looking stand. I will be building a wooden 3-tier very similar to this soon.

Nicely done. I am looking to build a 3 tier gravity system. Do you have plans for your rig?
