So this is what it may look like at the end of the day. The bottom horizontal rail would be as low as it could be while providing clearance for the pump body under it, and plumbing.

Finally got sick of waiting for my buddy and started cutting with the hope that we can get the welding done over the thanksgiving break. Had to stop with my cutoff wheel ground down too small. More to come (I hope this weekend)

You will see the rails where they were attached for the hand railing that we got the free steel from. I did a preliminary clean up to get the bulk of the metal off and will have to make some adjustment cuts. RIght now my brackets for the pots are 16'' pieces. I think I will be going with 15'' instead because I have to trim down the frame a bit so it fits overall dimensions of 6x 25.25'' (right now it is 6'x26'').

Been a while since I posted but finished the basic brew rig structure and have put 4 batches through on it to evaluate it and decide what changes need to be made. So for sure it would be convenient to add a pump!

Couple plans right off are to:
a. work on the tippy dump for the brew rig. If it makes sense we want to do this for the BK and the MT so they are easier to clean and rinse out.
b. Fasten the control panel to something where it is more protected (current plan is using a swing arm from an old desk).
c. more permanent pump attachment
d. Shelf on the bottom and a more organized electrical run of the wires.
d. Paint it in the spring!
